Be sure and cover that apparent rust hole in the pax side rocker panel--even with duct tape temporarily--you don't want water to get inside as it will (and may have already started) to eat the right side frame rail. And that's serious.

Thanks for the advice! She is living in the garage right now and the first order of business is to fix the rocker. I received the replacement rocker with the car.

I noticed in another post you mentioned that the lip on the left rear wheel opening is rusted. Be advised that you can buy a preformed replacement lip--MUCH easier than replacing the entire quarter panel. I think it's a factory replacement part, which means either Blunt or Max should be able to get it for you.

I did both of my rear fender opening lips that way 15+ years ago--butt welded the patch panel in with a MiG welder turned down real low--and they haven't rusted yet!

cheers

That is the plan for the fender. I'm looking around to see if I can find a patch panel off a rust free body now. My budget is tight, I have to buy a welder too.

Thanks again for the help.
