Does any one have a source for the sheet metal piece that is behind the quarter panel and extends for ward into the outer rocker on a 64 convertible?
Thanks in Advance

Brett

Is this what you are asking about for inside the rocker from Hubbard Impala?

It may be, maybe I am looking at it wrong.
That is the outer rocker?
Thanks for your help.

I think they are inner or inside the rockers -call them and ask....and ask for better pictures so you can tell...

here is the inner rocker that the braces weld to:

Here are two pictures of the damaged area.
It seems to be of a different shape compared to Hubbard’s pictures of the internal structure.
Thoughts?

62 Impala convertible drivers 1/4 panel -see these pictures -my body shop fixed the existing rust without purchasing new interior rockers.

Looks like you or someone cut out the brace above the rocker in your pictures (see my pictures were the rocker repair is reattached with a patch to the interior brace above the rocker )

Paul,
Looks like the body shop did a great repair. It was me that cutoff the lower portion of the outer b pillar. It actually went to the bottom of the rocker. It was welded to the rocker at the rocker edge where it turned back down. Did the U channel on the bottom of the rocker get reinstalled?
