Default Looking for a unicorn and i dont mean GMR parts LOL.....

Anyone know of a 97-02 coupe sitting any where with clean rocker panels?

Id like both left and right cut out of a car from wheel well to wheel well.

The black caged gtp I got could use them and Id also plan on replacing the roof skin in between the drip rails.

I might as well clean up the body if Im going to do the roof skin anyways. Currently its just got some ghetto patch plugging the sunroof that seriously annoys the hell out of me.

Also @ Jdredd did you ever put the lexan in your car? Im still curious to see how much weight savings a whole car minus the front windshield would be worth.

Anyone think its worth going through the work to redo the rockers like this or just seal them up and weld in some fresh sheet metal to stop the cancer since the rocker cladding covers it anyways.

Its either save this shell or take the cage out and take off coilovers and whatever else is worth saving.

youd be better off to hack em out and run rocker tubes and just weld in a std 90* piece of .032+ steel angle. with a 6pt+ cage youll be plenty strong completly losing the OEM rocker boxes with just adding a rocker tube from the main hoop to the front leg base

Has 6 point now. So basically complete waste to redo oem type repair. Just cut out the cancer weld in new and its covered with the rocker cladding anyways. I don't care if its perfect just need to get rid of and stop the cancer.
