Does anyone here have experience with "slip on" rocker panels?
My rockers are pretty rusted out on both sides; after some searching I came across some a pair made by Sherman (SHERMAN Part # 40504L and SHERMAN Part # 40504R). After inquiring with them they indicate that these are "slip on".
I also checked around locally and getting the same solution which brings me to my question:
1. Has anyone here done this with good results?
2. Should any of the rested area be cut away before welding these on or
should the rust be treated with something to prevent further deterioration?
Any other relevant information and opinions wanted
