Next, are the rocker panels. I laid out, cut and started bending the right side outer rocker and ran out of time so I'll try to finish the bends tomorrow.Name:  020.jpg

The extra length on the front will continue all the way forward to the back of the front wheel opening. Then I'll cut the lower portion of the fenders off and they will bolt to the top of the extended rocker. This will make aligning the fenders a lot easier and a better fit. There are a few new cars that use this method and it is a very clean look. One that comes to mind is the BMW 3 series.
I will be extending the front of the doors a few inches to effectively reduce the length of the fenders and try to balance out the long front end look.Name:  021.jpg
