    Rocker/Slider Build

    Well, my rockers were shot, not too bad, but I didn't wanna patch anything so I decided to go FULL ON!

    Iv cut out both sides, and this is what I was left with.


    After some cleaning up of the rust, and cutting out the lip with the pinch weld so that it was flush with the floor, I welded in some 1.5" x 1.5" angle iron, 1/4" of an inch up from the bottom of the floor. This gives me room to weld both on top and behind the angle iron.




    After doing 1" stitches every 4 inches both top and bottom, I rock guarded the whole area. I was done for the night ( Im doing this in my apartment parking lot), and I didn't want anything to rust. Plus this is going to protect the area once I install the Rocker/Slider.


    I started cutting the 3" x 6" tube at about a 45' angle, and capping them off.


    this morning, I was able to finish welding up one of the rails. Mounted it up, and with some adjustment its welded in and rock guarded.


    Tomorrow I will get the drivers side done.

    I live on jane and finch, I have a pretty intimidating job, and ride a bad ass harley... the neighbors dont like to start trouble. In fact, this is all being done right in front of the Super Attendant door.

    I ground down the door sills until there was about a 1/2" of the horizontal portion left. ( just below the lip of the door. I then did 1" stitches every other inch. I'm a firm believer in NOT welding something SOLID to a unibody the stitches will give a little. But not much I know. If I feel I need more re enforcement on the top I will drill holes and plug weld it.
