Door Sill Rust

Hi all!

When I first picked up my '14 last year I noticed a bit of what I thought was dirt underneath the plastic trim in the driver's side door sill. Didn't think much of it and left it at that.

Today while running some wiring under the trim I noticed that it was not just dirt, and was in fact worn-through paint turned to rust. I guess the plastic trim is just ever-so-slightly loose and wears away at the sill paint during driving. The passenger side trim has been doing a similar rubbing but is not nearly as bad.




Passenger side:

(ignore the water, there was some light snow when I took these pics)

Once the weather warms up this spring, I'll probably take it in to the body shop and have them repaint & throw down some protection film to keep it from wearing through again. As much as I'd love to save money and do it myself this is definitely a more involved repair than some touch-up paint and sandpaper.

Just curious if anyone else has similar issues & what they've done to deal with it. I'd imagine it's not a super uncommon problem considering everyone's trim pieces are the same.
