In your part of the world it might be called the 'sill' as in door sill.

I seem to remember this word being used in the UK and europe although it's been a while since I was there.

Both right?

This may be stupid but I think you are both right.
The surface that is curved down on the outside is the rocker panel, and the flat part n the top side is the door sill.
I could be wrong.

"thank-you huckmag"

My pleasure As for the beams (frame rails), I would say for a unibody car like yours there were none there. If you wanted to shore it up by adding some, even temporarily, it would be fine. Looks like you are doing a thorough job of rust removal. Best of luck with your car!

BTW I think Customconspiracy is correct. I say this because the aluminum trim on top of the area is called a sill plate.
