I purchased new stainless steel thresholds as part of my respray project. It turns out that the new ones are stamped with the Morgan name.

The old ones were thoroughly nailed (about 2 inches between the nail pairs).

I'd like to keep the look of the new thresholds without demolishing it with nails. Any suggestions how to attach the stainless steel to the paint/wood/leather seam?

I am soon going to replace mine with Heart of England versions I bought just before they closed but put off doing. I think they came pre drilled and with panel pins but will check again. They are straight and will need forming to match the shape of the originals. My initial thoughts on shaping are to clamp one end of new to one end of old and work my way along, matching bends/curves as I go.

Are you thinking glue/adhesive, or stick with the nails?

I think stainless domed straight slot screws would look correct.

As long as the slots are aligned innocent

I think these are H of E thresholds as fitted circa 20 years ago to my mid 80`s +8 they obviously run all the way up to the door latch and from the scratching it seems they did a good job of protecting the bodywork from contact with my good lady`s heels..? They were fitted by Kevin at the time of his rebuild of my +8.

Just checked again and the HoE has pins. I am thinking of an adhesive to be a holding base and just punch the pins the minimum for extra hold, avoiding creating the dents in the metal. The door latch end will be the fiddliest bit with the changes in angles.
Luddite, your car is the same colour combo as mine. Red body/ “butterscotch” leather.
The original threshold plates are aluminium.

RED..Sospan..!!! Mere red..? I would have you know that My +8 is in fact a rather classy Jaguar hue identified as Cabernet no less. When I mistakenly suggested the thresholds might be lightly scratched, I should have merely suggested that they were of course wonderfully patinated...and that the craftsman had left his mark by way of the slightest impressions in the ss when he tapped in the pins..... laugh2

Yes Richard, they would certainly require alignment, I replaced all my screws with straight slot and aligned them. should i check them with a laser? rofl steering boss screws all aligned radially.
