As some of you might know I am doing a frame up restoration on a 64, and I started with nothing (so to speak). I had nothing to go off of rocker wise. What exactly does a finished rocker look like and where should I do the spot welds. I got the rockers from LMC (I know they aren't always just a plug and play). I honestly don't know if I messed up the lower A pillar, the lower B pillar or the rocker is messed up from the factory. As you can see from the pictures the bottom doesn't line up with the inner rocker panel. Prior to acquiring the rockers I put the door on for shits and giggles and it open and closes fine. I guess more or less this post is about what it is supposed to look like when it is done and where do I put the spot welds. Feel free to rip me a new one on criticism. This is my first ever restoration. I can also take any extra pictures you may need to help solve this issue.

Most rockers (even NOS ) take some work to get in place. And if this is your first, that's even more difficult, not being sure what to look for. Most times it helps when ready to remove the factory rockers, its a good idea to weld a few supports to the inside of the door jam to keep the alignment of the A and B pillar.
It would help if you could stand back and take some pictures, so we can see the whole picture. Hopefully we can help along the way.... :D
