FORD FOREVER Can I see Your Focus Rocker replacement Pictures.
04-08-2013 02:26 PM
FORD FOREVER Thank you. There is a place in Wisconsin, called Browns of Two Rivers. Browns has full replacement Rockers for four door focus. $79.99 each. Seems like a good price. Has anyone used a part from Browns?
There are smaller patch panels on ebay for $39. but seem like they would almost be more work to install.
Before I put the full panels on which every I decide to purchase I was thinking of undercoating
the inside of them really good, and making sure that are are good drain area for mositure to escape. Is this a good idea to under coat them on the inside before installing. It seems that therockers rusted from the inside out. The rest of the car and the floor boards are not rusting at all. Just the rockers. And they are gone.

nm120 Did my rockers on my 2000 focus that were non existent due to salt and someone from factory plugging the drain holes with silicone. So they rusted right through. There's lots of places now that sell the focus rockers primed and painted black already for around 60-70 each. Definitely a larger project i cut mine out and welded the rockers in right where the door seal is so you cant see the weld points after sanding due to the rubber seal covering them. I reinforced the rockers around where the drain holes are so minimizes on bending and it's a nice solid piece then. I have pictures of the whole process with before and after if your interested pm me i can send you some pictures

bddetroit awesome! thanks for replying da wagon! i appriciate it. makes me feel better about tackling this project

DaWagon I have replaced a set of rockers on a Focus before and it was a fun project!

I did it by drilling out all of the spot welds on the rocker and removing the old rusted out one that was in there. I then welding the new one back in place using all of the factory weld in points. Smoothed the welds out and used some filler to fill the holes, used 120/320 grit paper to smooth things up. Primed then painted and done.

Took a weekend to do both sides but was worth it.

You don't need to support it when its off as its mainly a cosmetic piece. As far as what grit to use to remove the rusty spots, I usually start off with a 80 grit on bad spots then work up to something less aggressive.
