Q: Rocker Panels for 1968
I’m trying to figure out how my new rocker panel moulding strip goes on my 1969 firebird. The last time I had molding on it was 12 years ago and I can’t remember . What I have is two Nos mouldings right out of the GM packaging each moulding came with a small bag of screws and one of the packages had two 1 inch by about 24inch metal strips each with three holes in it and both stamped with the letter R. I see that these strips hold the moulding on ,on the top . My Question is,where am I suppose to connect the metal strips one on each side, ? Or both on the right side because they are marked with an R and if this is correct it means I’m missing the two strips for the left side.
A: You should have two “one inch strips” per side. One spans the front of the rocker panel and onto the back of the fender. The other mounts directly behind the first on the rocker panel (lip side up). The molding has places for one screw in each end. The one in the back simply screws through the molding and into the rocker panel. The front screws into a plastic insert in the back of the fender. Then all that is remaining is the screw along the bottom of the molding, into the rocker panel.
