This past week & weekend I've been tackling the rust on the rockers. It looks ugly, but it should be solid. The plan is to get M3 side skirts that bolt over top to cover it all up. I started on the passenger side, which turned out MUCH worse than the driver side:

I guess it doesn't matter much for a track car, but if you had a straight edge to work with you could have spent some time with a hammer banging those corners to look straighter. I remember making a jig out of an old bed frame, did the job for some small patch work.

^yeah exactly. I really didn't spend as much time as i *could* have doing this - the purpose was simply to patch the holes. Since it's all going to get covered anyways, Looks weren't on my priority list.
