      ^ That's really nice. I've got the same repair coming up on my own restoration.

      My suggestion, buy a new rocker. I originally thought I was only going to be replacing the worst part. I ended up replacing close to 90%

      Wow, nice work. I wasn't expecting that due to the thread title and the first 5 photos. Keep up the good work!

      I was referring to the gas door. On my driver's side, yes, I am fitting a new rocker right now, and I've also patched the bottom side and fitted a new reinforcement plate.
