    thats a good shop, i may use for other things, but, what i need is,
    pvc widowcill is L shaped, one end is exposed and just the cut edge of the cill.
    I need end caps to cover this so the cut profile is not on show.
    So a bit of plastic, 25mm-ish wide and 225mm long x 6.
    I may if i cant get anything just have to cut some out of plastic card, but i'd rather just buy some.

    cheers gadget, i'm up norham rd twice a day!
    Sorry ha, not windowcill like you have shown, just interior window boards, just an L-profile.
    They just sit on the brickwork and butt up to windows.

    Oh, I see. Not sills at all then. You mean cappit fascia board used as sills ?


    In that case, not sure if there is a suitable end cap for those. So maybe get a length of the stuff evo posted and trim it yourself. With a 'hook-knife'(I know you've got one of them:)), cut to length, trim off and discard all but the back(the back is the piece to use), roughly cut rounded edges, superglue on to end, allow to bond, trim off round corners with sharp stanley.

    Check there are no sharp edges left.



    Mr. Handyandy - really

    Yep ha, that's what i mean, just thought there may be an end cap.
    People must have need for them, someone else must also have an open ended window board!!!!
    Yep i can easy cut a bit of plastic card and yep i usually have 4-500 hooky blades, though i think i would favour straights (mind you i am like a surgeon with a stanley knife)
    Cheers!
