View Full Version : properly doing rockers

02-24-2016, 12:13 PM
OK in most cases we know, doing rockers is just not worth while, a lot depends on how bad they are in the 1st place, and they are always worse than first though once you get into it!

Has anyone here, or is anyone here interested in PROPERLY fixing rockers on a Tbird. There is a car in Pickering I may look at and from what I can see of the skirt conditions I have reason to expect that the rockers are poor, but not really terrible.

I'm not looking for a project, so if anyone here (an likely has to be someone who has done it before) is interested we can converse about the cost once I have more detail on the actual condition of things

Since new rockers are still available, I'd get them first, then do a compare with your car to better judge the job at hand. Keep the receipt ;)

I have a set of new stamped rocker panels I picked up from Ed several years back as a precaution.
They run full length, wheel opening to wheel opening, both sides.
A decent metal person could cut out the old and tack in the new.

Advise if you need them. I don't.

89 in Pickering

Nice shape all around, but rockers totally toast rust crawling up 1/4 as well.
Too bad, but really a parts car only.

Hey Pete,
Do you have any details on the car?

Did you sell these Bruce? I'm interested in them if still available.

I believe I still have them. I have to check the "shed".

It'll be another week as I'm stuck here in Ottawa for another weekend and my SC parts are in Quinte West.
