    Default DS Pallas sill holes and replacing sill carpet

    All,
    I'm replacing the carpet in the DS. I've stripped out the old carpet and come across a series of holes in the sills that look like they are original - see attached picture. There are more of them near the B pillar.

    I've got replacement carpets and after smothering the interior I'll be installing them.

    So, I have two questions:
    1) What are the holes for and should they be plugged?
    2) What's the best way to get the sill carpet edge in the stainless carpet retainer that runs along the sill? Any tips or tricks?

    cheers
    Charlie

    The two holes in the footwell are for a kick plate fitted to LHD vehicles

    no idea what the two at the base of the pillar are for. There are a lot of locating holes from the manufacturing process throughout the frame.

    As Faulksy said, others could be to do with the manufacturing process. Another thread (here or elsewhere) recently mentioned access holes for spot welding for example, or they might be holes for fitting parts to jigs before welding them up?
