    How does it attach

    So you need to sand the sill down slightly and then how does the momo sill attach? Could I sand it by hand?
    Thanks in advance

    When you were sanding it, did it seem like the material was soft enough that you could probably trim the ridges off with a razor or x-acto knife? I don't have access to a dremel or sander, and thought maybe the knife method might be easier/cleaner (if it was soft enough). I don't want to start something with the razor & possibly fudge things up.

    A razor probably wouldn't work very well. Unless maybe you tried a whittling knife??

    The MOMO sills have a strip of adhesive on the back which if the stock plastic is sanded flat, should work. I think plain old sandpaper and some elbow grease would probably work just as well as the Dremel, although it might take quite a lot longer.

    My $0.02 is to buy the Dremel. It's relatively cheap now, and it's multitude of uses will pay for itself many times over real quick.

    Good luck everyone Glad to be of service...

    Hey, I got my dremmel a couple weeks ago for $39 at Lowe's. It comes with different attachments and it has 2 speeds. Get them while you can, cause they go fast!!! Whoosh!

    Well, I went and got myself a dremel on my lunchbreak. haha. I remember them being really expensive way back when, and never looked at them again since then. You're right though. Really with them as cheap as they are, no one as any excuse not to have one.

    So now I just ordered my sills too. What attachment did you find works the best on the plastic?

    I just tried the drum sander attachment (looks like a little sander "barrel"). Worked pretty well, although just a little time consuming - TAKE YOUR TIME!!! The MOMO sills cover most of the stuff that you're going to shave off, but if you mess up and shave off a part that's outside, it'll show up.

    I would probably use the cutting disc for the door sills if you're going to flatten out the rear edge to match the stock door sills better.

    I am going to try and do an inlay. Probably take a little more work, but it should look nice.

    Mine came in today.

    I am going to use a riveter and rivet it in the plastic along w/ the adhesive b/c I don't think the adhesive will last.

    I saw a GT legecy today, noticed they came with Subaru Door Sill's. Looked pretty nice. They would probably fit just fine on a Impreza, and will hopefully be cheap.
