You would think that with the popularity of the Chevelle, they could get these part right.
Nothing seems to go together correctly on these car swhen it comes to re-pops
Had the same issues with a few of the 59 Chevy parts as well.
Seems most of those parts were all 95% the size of actual original parts.

#1 Check your parts fit on the origional. Then match it or better it. Whatever it takes.
I spent 2 days trying to make an aftermarket fender fit the aftermarket headlight door, and grill, and hood, and door, all at the same time. on a 67 chevelle.
I ended up having to cut the fender into about 3 pieces, and re-shaping it then welding it back together. (was supposed to be the best you can get)

|Wrencher||I just checked out another outer rocker, and indeed they have a slight bow inside to outside, on that crease under the door. It's not straight as an arrow!|

|diggers||take a cut off wheel slit the rocker on the bottom open it up to where the curve is out of it put a piece of metal in ther to fill the hole where you slit the metal. Thats about all you can do you buy junk you get junk|

|Wrencher||lol, true statement, but, the bottom door would need to be arched to match and that would involve lotsa bondo and ruin the bodyline.|

The qtr panel goes over that any way right? As long as the qtr lines up with the door who cares what shape it is . Its aftermarket? An old body man i learned from long ago used to say you cant see both sides of the car at the same time?

chevelle outer rocker contour
Can anyone tell me if a 69 chevelle outer rocker has a straight, or slight bow to the contour edge looking down from the top, where it meets the door bottom and lower quarter? I have mine installed and noticed they both have a bowed contour? They don't look bent, and I never really noticed before, I think they should be straight as an arrow, any help appreciated!
