As this car of mine approaches the start of its 55th consecutive year of on-going restoration, it is time to consider the rocker panel situation. This Westchester Sedan's rockers are about 50% gone, largely removed when it was discovered that the main unibody channel rails were, shall we say, less than whole. Those rails are reinforced better than new, but now I have to figure out what to do about rockers.

It would be easy to shop-bend the rockers if they were straight. Unfortunately, they are compound curves. One plan if attack is to shop-fab small sections and weld them in place side-by-side and fill the ziggy-zaggy sections with putty to make them smooth. I don't like the idea of all that putty though--seems like it would contantly be breaking out.

Does anyone have a source for NEW rocker panels?

Thanks,

Tom,

I believe that a recent issue of the Newsletter had an add for new rocker panels. I have an address for a man in Canada who makes them. I think it is the same man in the Newsletter add. I also have the name of a man in the L.A. area if this one doesn't work out.

Try: Bernie Hann, 4300 Brigham Road, London Ont. Canada, N6P 1P3. Phone is 519-652-3481.

Tom:
Take a look at the web site's parts for sale section for 810 - 812 cords. There is an add with photos for the panels you need.

We are currently making rocker panels now in two versions. Short sections replace the rocker from the firewall to just behind the door on convertibles. Our full length rockers fit sedans and convertibles and replace from the firewall to the rear fender. Pictures are in the parts section of this forum. These panels are nicely formed and will take very little filler to smooth out after installation.
