Re: Repro Rocker Panels

If they're the same ones made in Canada that JC Whitney sells, They aren't worth a Sh**.They probably could be used if you trim the ends and rebend them.

Re: Repro Rocker Panels

Thanks, wasn't sure and the description isn't that great...Summit isn't know for selling junk
so I thought I'd put it out there. No I don't have a link look on Ebay, that's where I saw them.

Re: Repro Rocker Panels

your usually better off to get real parts cut from somthing southern than use any of the crap repro stuff that needs to be made to fit

even the stuff you find being made for the muscle cars now is usually in need of major reworking to get it right

the welding that needs added to the edge of the repro challenger and "B" body fenders just to make them actually follow the door line is one thing I can think of off hand

Re: Repro Rocker Panels

I bought a set of rockers from someone on here (not sure where they were from originally). The fit up pretty good, but aren't as long as I'd like. They start basically where the fender ends and end aprox at the door. So they're not a whole rocker that I'd like (from wheelwell to wheel well). They also don't go all the way up (It would be nice if I could cut out the old spot welds and weld them in, but the tops are not like that). The tops end on the sill area (more of a pain than a help in fixing the rocker).

87 Daytona Shelby Z 2.5 T2-> cummins cooler, 3" exhaust, S60, forged venolias, Shel-game custom 3 bar cal 18 psi... ported +1 head Lookin to go low 13's.. extra lean - need a good tune and hopefully the new 4 puck holds up.

rust free car...Better to know now, than to find out later!!! Thanks Again
