Scratches on door sill.

Stupid me scratched his door sill from wearing boots and not being careful...

What's the best way to repair any damage now so it won't rust in the future?

I was going to get some sill guards as well, anyone have a personal recommendation?

here's picture of my stupidity =(

Sill guards, around $25. After looking a little closer it does'nt look like they would help

I would just use touch up paint to keep it from rusting, but the sill guards may help with other areas that may get scratched. I am pretty tall (6'4") so I know that it is a pain for me sometimes to get into the Jeep. I either kick the door pocket or hit something on the sill.

duayne77, yeah it doesn't look like the mopar one will cover all the way to the edge, where most of the scratches are. I might be able to use something else to cover that gap, like rubber tape.

nukemustang, I share your pain, at 6'3" and the neighbors car next to mine, it's a pita to make sure not to ding their car and not hit mine either =(

I found this stuff at a local auto supplier http://www.bodyshopsuppliesforless.c...t_version=true (the best I can find on the net). It's a clear protective tape that they use for the front of car bumper, rocker panals, door sills, ect. I bought some for where my sail panel meets the body because it was rubbing the paint off. Something to check into.
