passenger side rocker panel

blondwookieblondwookie Posts: 168Member
I need to locate a passenger side rocker panel for my 48 coupe. I've been told that any coupe rocker panel will work. Apparently, i need to locate one. This is how badly mine is damaged, including the front is completely rolled inside

Thanks for any help

    I am not an expert at body work, but I have seen rocker panels that are much worse than yours repaired.  The cost to straighten that panel may be too much? But I would ask around in your community to determine if there is a shop that can repair it.  Recently I posted pictures about a new panel guy who is repairing rusted rocker panels and he is making new parts to do that task. So, I am thinking there are others who can do the same?

    In Casper, there is not those kind of body men. They only bondo to hide the problem. The front of my rocker panel is rolled backwards by 2inches

    There's a lot of guys in the rust belt states that would pay good money for that rocker.
    I'm no body man and I've fixed worse then that. You need to find the right guy.
    There are long and short wheel base rockers. You can use any from 48-53 of the right length , but you you may have to change the way the mouldings attach.

    With the exception of this piece and the rear corner pieces of damage, my car has no rust anywhere. A lot of sand all over the body from years of Wyoming sand blasting, yes. Cancer no

    I think passenger side is more difficult to find. I have a bunch of the drivers side rockers.

    I finally got mine dismantled. When I have it done, it will be a cloned 50 Hornet with a 7X engine
