    Has anyone ever used or known anyone who has used the body repair panels from jcwhitney, which are previously molded metal pieces which you wled onto the original body after cutting out the specified region. Not bolt on replacement panels, but rather repair panels. If so do you have anything to say about like how easy or hard, or if its worth while, i just want to know if i should?

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    I got the rocker panels and they wouldn't fit due to the fact that the lip that the rubber wheatherstrip sits on was to wide I could have fixed it by putting it in the vise but stuffed the rockers with non corrosive aluminum filler i.e. beer cans and bondo instead.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I have used the rockers. They were ok but not perfect.
    I need to replace a rocker on the Lady's 79 and I think I'll get these from <a target="_blank" href=http://www.yearone.com>Year One</a> and see how they are. I have used one of their panels for another vehicle and the fit was good.

    Women dig dents and flat paint!
