Replacement Rocker Panels

Friends,

 

I need both L and R new rocker panels for my '74 tii.  I could not find them at BluntTech or Rogerstii.  The only source (other than dealers) I could find is Bavauto (OEM parts 41 35 6 440 140 [L] and --141 [R]) (see attached photos from seller's site).  $112.00 each.    

1.  Did I miss them at BluntTech and Rogerstii?

2.  Some sites mention "Rocker Panel Covers"?  Is there a separate cover?  Is this the same as or in addition to rocker panels?

3.  Do you think the Bavauto rocker panels in the photos have (1) jack points and (2) the holes for the trim clips?  I cannot tell.

 

Thank you for the help and advice.

 

Larry

Bavauto prices are same as BMW retail.  They look like OEM.  You can do better on price - try online BMW parts sellers like getBMWparts.com ($90 currently), or email Blunt.  Watch shipping costs for big parts like these.

 

The OEM rockers have the front jacking point and holes for trim clips.  The rear jack point is part of the rear quarter panel.  If you have rust in the rear part of your rocker panels, you will probably also need the quarter panel patch panel, available from WallothNesch, for instance. 

 

BTDT (been there, done that)

Thank you, Harold.  Just the info I needed.  Exactly.  Will order today and have them sent to the body dude.  Now off to Idaho for 3 weeks of backpacking.

 

Regards,

You will probably want to do a lower front quarter patch while you are in there.  They ship the stuff straight from Germany.  Shipping is not near as bad as you might think and it get to your door quick.

 

For the lower quarter panel patches, you'll want to get it from them Wallothnesch... I bought mine from Restoration Design but they ARE the Wallothnesch parts, so just buy from the source and save some dough.

 

good luck
