  • Need some help from another 55 Pres owner

    I'm finishing up my floor replacement and I'm having trouble with the rocker. Could someone take a pic of their car showing the relationship between the pass side fender, door, & rocker. I can't remember if the rocker is flush with the fender or if it follows the gap in the door. Help?
    Thanks

      I have some photos I took of a new rocker panel for my 4-door sedan and could email them to you.....not sure they will help, but I can sends them. I had to do a little trimming to make the new one fit buit it fits great.

            MY 'y' body I don't think is correct, other wise I would send a photo. PO did some self styling in that area with contours. I can send a photo but I'm almost positive it is atypical.

              I'll send a pic later, but the rocker on my car is original, lines up about 5/16" below the door edge. The forward vertical is even with the door and the horizontal gap is in line with the crease in the fender.

                    Those are nice, I think I remember when that car was on ebay, saw it on there shortly after I bought mine. Can you take any close up shots?
                    Thanks
