ROCKER PANEL, OUTER, RH, CENTER SECTION, 62 INCH (61 INCH VISIBLE) X 4 3/4 INCH X 6 INCH, COMPLETE 16 GAUGE PART, SEE 010128-2B FOR 60.25 INCH 67-68
I am still trying to figure this out but the reproduction rocker panel is not stamped the same as the rocker panels on my 65 fastback. If I were just using a small piece for a patch it would probably be ok but one of the areas I need from the repro panel has a V shaped indentation stamped into it and that is not present on my car. I just sent it back without further testing but from looking at a piece of my original rocker, these are also stamped out of a somewhat thinner metal than the originals. This is not an area you want to thin out on these cars. I do not fault NPD on this as I have now called 10 companies and everybody has the same situation including the Dynacorn panels. So far, I haven't found an original in any good enough shape that I could extract it either. Frankly, I don't know what to do.
