This is a '67 I did and I'm not 100% certain the 68 up are the same, but I think they are. The outer rocker goes into the front pillar and is welded to many components inside. You would need to remove part of the floor pan and most, if not all the inner kick panel to access all the attachment points.





Poor pic, but you can see how far it extends under the A pillar.





The holes running for and aft get welded to the rocker. My entire kick panel was toast and this is from a donor.





It also welds to the outer cowl along the seam I have roughed in here that's behind the fender.



This is the sequence of assembly involved under the b pillar. It's rather involved also with many spot welds to drill out and then sneak it out between the pillar and floor pan. I was replacing the entire pan and inner rocker, so I had good access.



I used my plasma to remove and the body is on a roto. Makes the job easier.
