Sure here's the link to Eastwood's kit
No Weld Panel Repair Kit - Auto Body Panel Replacement Without Welding

Did some quick searching and also found this that has pretty good reviews https://www.amazon.com/3M-08115-Pane...nel+Repair+Kit

The 3M video on Youtube says not to use it on rocker panels but I think with some slip-on rockers it might be okay. I am curious as to why; body flexing maybe? It does solve my problem with not being able to weld them on. If it works it works. If not, I am not much worse off than was. I like it a darn sight better than using Bondo. Painting them is another matter. I like getting the 3M stuff over the Eastwood kit. About the same price and according to the video, no rivets.

my guess is body strength/integrity reasons. That's very important for unibodies.

I agree. Since I am not really removing the old rocker, but just putting the patch piece over it I think it should be okay...

If someone brings in something old and want a restoration we send them on their way lol

How exactly is this relevant in a do-it-yourself thread? The question at hand is not which body shop to go to. The question at hand is the best way to go about doing it myself.

It got off topic,


As I said before, your best bet is going to be cutting out and treating everything. Then rivit in a patch panel and grind and fill from there.
