How To Install Slip on Rockers, 2001 Silverado
With this video, I switch gears a bit from home repair to vehicle repair. It certainly qualifies as a DIY project. I attempted to make this to the point and as short as possible and still convey a good description of how I moved through the installation of slip on rocker panels on my 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. Slip on panels are manufactured to be applied over the existing rusted out areas. As explained in the video, there are several way to attach these panels. I did purchase a flux core welder specifically for the project, and even with that expense feel that I am well below what it would have cost to have a professional do the work. As close I can figure, I have about $300.00 in the project. This includes the welder. I suspect that it would cost that much for just one side if I had paid a professional.
