hello everyone! (rocker replacement questions)

hey everyone im new to the forums. i found this site using google. well long story short i got my fiance a new car and she gave me her focus for my project.

its a 2002 SE auto. ive inspected the car up and down and this is my list of what needs done.

wheel bearing
extream cleaning
pass side rocker panel.

the rest of the car is pretty much spotless


now i already know what i need tool/accessory wise to do the rocker panel and im getting that all together now. my biggest qeustions are when i cut the rocker skins off do i need to brace this some how? i wouldent think so but better ask then not to.

and can some one link me to a replacement rocker? i keep finding alot of "slip over" covers and i dont like that idea at all i want the rust gone not hidden. i found this...

it seems like a real replacment rocker to me what what do you all think? and any tips/hints would be great this is pretty much my first body work attempt.


thank you very much!
