Decided to move back to the passenger side for a bit. Removed the front fender and door so I could size up the rocker better.



Fitting the one solid original AMC rocker I got from a parts car long ago.

Looks real good. Wish mine looked that nice when I started cutting to look!

Did a quick fix on more holes that had been cut in the radiator support.

Moved back to the passenger side rocker. Bottom was a bit rotten so I stitched a piece to the underside.



Burned it in. I really wanted to keep an original AMC part there since it's got a slight curve to it and the reproductions I've seen don't. Now I gotta work something out on the driver's side.

Nice metal work there, Rebel. Thumbs Up

I really gotta learn to weld.  The Rambler doesn't need it. Hopefully never will, but there are so many more projects you can take on when you can weld.

Thanks!

Got the rocker welds ground down and made a patch for another rotted area. Should have that burned in tomorrow.

Burned in and painted.



Now I have to choose what to attack next, driver's side rocker or passenger door. Got a new old stock passenger side doorskin but the door took a good impact back in the '80s as evidenced by the bottom. Might use one of the spare doors I have.

Cut the doorskin off the passenger side door. I don't know...... may cut one of my spare doors to see if it'll be easier to work with. Someone enlarged the original door frame cutout for door speakers before I got the car. You wouldn't see it with the doorpanels in place but I still want it restored.

Definitely got a rust monster there unfortunately.

Kudos for having the patience and discipline to go thru and deal with all of it properly. Thumbs Up

Great work Steve. I’ve enjoyed following this thread so far and look forward to the finished product having seen your past work!
