Rocker panel- '65 Chevy P/U replacement

want to replace the left rocker panel on my '65 Chevy P/U, what sort of a chore is it ?
I see in the catologs an inner and outer panel, what is the inner ?
i need the door seal/gasket portion replaced, it's about an 1" high and the door seal goes over it.
what is the best way to replace this section?

First you will have to remove the fender. If you look under the rocker you will see the lip where it is spot welded to the inner rocker.The inner rocker is the part under the cab running up to the floor from the bottom of the rocker.Hope this helps.

That's a good description.


If the seal lip is bad, then that piece it is spotwelded to is likey real bad. Just look at that area from underneath to see if it's all swelled up or full of holes.

The FULL repro rocker is OK, the fit is pretty good except that seal lip area is bowed up a little. You need to keep trying door fit as you tack weld, because you don't want the door to scrape on the top of the rocker.

The repro backside piece is a challenge to make it fit. I make my own on a brake.
