03-12-2014 12:32 PM ROCKER PANELS
I bent up a couple of new rockers from 18 ga cold rolled sheet and hit them on the shrinker to get them curved.

I then added extensions at the door sill and the bottom. The bottom piece turns down for the pinch weld and the sill extension turns up to plug weld to the inner rocker which will come up higher and support the new floor.

I made a mock up of the tranny tunnel before proceeding with anything.
I then braced the car and cut the floor out.
After that, I cut out the rockers and a bit of the quarter panels up to some solid metal.

I got the trunk installed. I started by drilling plug weld holes where it joins to the trunk opening channel.

I then welded the front section solid to the quarter panel.

I made a hatch for fuel pump access and all the panels for the passenger side as well.

I welded up all pieces from both sides.

Painted the metal where the body mount channel will be spot welded.
