    Sagging Rockers anyone?

    I cant figure out what is going on here ,the pics are showing way over size for the screen on my cell ,i can shrink them down but the text gets to small to read ,could this be causing the picture problems for the forum? They show as 559 kb

    Sagging Rockers anyone?

    I dont have pics but i have had a couple of converts and the inner rocker lip does hang below the outer rocker just below the door post ,you will usually see several short welds with the inner rocker hanging below the outer ,i have also seen where they trimmed this overhang with a saws all when the body was assembled ,they also somtimes trimmed above the door sill lip with a saws all ,so they were built this way

    Sagging Rockers anyone?

    This is a 67 with the outer sheet metal removed and the rocker door structure is so solid i can walk on it with out distorting it ,the sub structure will twist side to side but it will not flex end to end ,unless the torque boxes are cut free

    Sagging Rockers anyone?

    Never noticed a sag ,i know the new inner rocker can somtimes be a bit wide and stick up above the top pinch weld and the bottom pinch weld ,i just trim it with a saws all and grind what is left. I have done several coupe to fast back conversions and coupe to convertible conversions and i can tell you even with all the outside sheet metal removed rhe rocker and door frame structure is very solid so i cant see it bending or bowing unless there has been some sort of wreck damage

    Advice in clutch linkages

    I do not like the feel of a hydraulic clutch ,i dont know why it just feels strange to me . A well setup stock setup ,with heim ends and roller pivots is the only way i will go . I know a stock set up sometimes interfears with headers ,but for me it is a more positive feel ,and i never grind gears like with a hydro setup.

    69 FB sail panel courtesy light removal

    The glues now days will not hold ,i used to make them using vinyl top glue ,but i cant buy it here anymore. Those new card board panels last just long enough to get them out of the box, although i have had to reglue them right out of the box
