Spider first I think this would best be in a new post of your own, but to answer your question yes your drawing is correct as far as how the rockers are put together. Are you sure your rockers are completely rust free?

Progress is looking good how'd that rocker assembly come together?

I was looking for a picture of where my trunk pan meets with the rear panel just can't find one at the moment. I can say the fitment issue was the radiused area on the trunk pan for the fuel filler it didn't match the tailpanel. The deepest part of the filler recess on the trunk pan was about an 1/8 inch forward (to the front) leaving a gap between it and the tailpanel.

Thx . Did you end up getting new door shells or using original doors. Before I can weld the rockers on passenger side and quarter I need to hang a door. My originals need skins and door bottoms for sure so I'm trying to weigh my options. Know anyone with the new door shells ?

Been working on the 85 lately . The 84 is an expensive rebuild so it is taking time . Need some more parts for the 84 to keep moving on it . Stay tuned

I got lucky and found a set of rust free OEM doors a guy had about three hrs from me, I ended up with them although they have some dents in the outer skin the seams r good.

I'd check with mikes on the skins seems to have the best pricing usually, unless you maticulously search C/L for good originals.

If your quarters are like mine areas that needed addressed were down where the qtr overlaps the rocker, the gap door to qtr, and on the rear where it laps the tailend panel. The last one, in that list, needed just a slice to allow the top to flex down into place.

My problem is I get to working and don't really think about documenting all the processes. Hopefully yours will go into place easier as I bit off too much and got cut happy so there wasn't much for reference.

Cool . Ya there is usually a little tweaking to get stuff to fit. So far i havent had to mod the quarter yet but its not fully fitted yet but is really close. My roof seam is fitting very good though . I almost have the window mounting holes lined up. I need a few more key parts to finish up the body and get to the less tedious stuff
