Repair sill pannels; KLOKKERHOLM repair pannels

I have a small rust hole right behind the rear jacking gromet. From memory The hole is about the size of 2 50 pence coins. I've seen repair sill pannels from a brand called KLOKKERHOLM with very reasonable prices online the guys on the VW fourms seem to suggest they are decent quality.

I plan to cut rust out and weld a piece of the new pannel in Just interested if anyone had any experience with these pannels or this brand?

Ok thanks I guess its not 100% but its only for the jacking point underneath not a cosmetic pannel. Are original or OEM quality pannels available?

If you are capable of welding your sill repairs then surely with some sheet steel you could make the repair panels yourself ?

Yes for patches you can make it out of sheet metal, but 2sills dont cost that much, so if it is some profilen that is bad, its. Worth it compared to the work of making it yourself if whant it to look okay.

Also would have a look inside to see that inner parts Are okay...

Anyone seen inside the jacking points after the old material is removed before welding ? They are built like tank inside and the fronts are only a cover and do nothing for the strength of the jacking point .New metal can be welded in,thats if the hole is not that bad after its cleaned up ..

Yes the outside cosmetic pannel is where the hole is around the hole for the gromet. Its probably a result of having the rubber gromet missing. This is the pannel I am wanting to weld a new section into I want to buy a repair pannel so it looks the same when done rather than just weld a plate over it.
