Tomorrow I hang the door....If it fits
yep. Did the same on the last rocker I did, which was a nomad. Was worried on that one cause no support to mock up fenders. nothing a little slice in the rockers can't handle. Great work!

I know that feeling. The same feeling I got when I welded in a hinge pocket on a chevy truck. Someone on line told me it was fine to do with no bracing and like a dummy I listened. Soon as I cut that thing out it was like the titanic. I had to measure the other side on top of all my bolt hole measurements and STILL was worrying at home before the weld in.
