Replacing a rocker panel
A recent visit to Baker Custom Finishing. Watch as Tim installs a replacement rocker panel. This rocker panel was damaged in an accident. The old one has been cut out and now Tim has to fit the new one so it can be welded in. The replacement rocker panel was purchased from a salvage yard. This is a great way to save a few dollars if you can find one in excellent shape. If you enjoyed this video, please give it a thimbs up, and be sure to subscribe to my channel. Thanks for watching.
