Side sill install

I took the sills off my 2000 RT/10 to change to high flow Cats and have my passenger panel painted. Came off easy. Seen posts about removal but are there any tricks to putting them on easily without scratching? How do I get that screw that's under the door back in? Thanks

They're rocker panels not sills. Been a while but if I remember right I loosely taped the screw to the socket, got it started then pulled the tape off to screw it the rest of the way. Over the years I lost a few of those screws and I'm probably missing a half dozen of them now. Panel still holding on though so if you can't get to it don't worry so much over it.

I use a small parts magnet on a telescoping extension. Stick the screw to it, then push it into the hole and give it an easy turn to seat. Then, follow with a nut driver. I also put a small dab of silicone on all of them - particularly the underside ones to keep them from backing out.

I leave the one under the door to the front out. Not worth the frustration and serves no useful purpose. Just put the plastic plug int the hole and call it a day. No reason for wasting time. Been doing that for years since I take my covers off way too often.

This... especially since converting to riv-nuts with no way to drill and install that location without removing the door.

Thanks for all the advice and insight. Seems like no one has trouble reinstalling them. Great!

Be sure to sweep or blow compressed air through the little "shelf" that the sills slide into under the door. Pebbles/sand like to get into that area and can cause problems with sliding the sills all the way back in.

I used the magnetic telescoping rod to reinstall my screws like GTS Dean - works perfectly.
