Salvage or replace rotting sliding door sill?

The Nearby door manufacturer sold me an Oak replacement sill with all the pre-routed channels for the metal tracks and the proper bevel, so saved me a BIG hassle!
Now I'm crossing my fingers about what I find underneath the old sill.
Taking the door panels off looks pretty straightforward.
If I don't find any subfloor rot, then the hardest part may be properly fitting the new sill under the old upright sides of the frame to match the original....especially if I will have to add a sill pan/H2O barrier.

I'll try to take pictures, and make this thread more informative as I go...

Thanks everyone!

Amazing that you were able to find a replacement sill--

Removing the frame from the opening might not be to difficult---
