    I am ok. I have not posted anything on my build thread but I am still working on the car. I bought some gauges that were supposed to fit in my stock dash. They don't really fit. So I am making a bracket to fill in the gap between the gauge and the plastic dash.

    You all better now?

    My new thread has photos. You need some additional bracing. When you remove the rocker, the windshield could move. Post 10.

    My seatbelt hole brace is in post 11

    On my jig, if the horizontal bars on the jig were level, then the rockers were level. I used a bubble level. Before I took the old ones off, I welded two pieces of metal to the jig to set the new one to the right height. The seat belt hole brace does the same thing it sets the rocker fore and aft, the right height, plus it makes sure the rocker is not twisted or rolled wrong.

    Yea, I changed both of them. They are welded to the firewall, the side shoulder cowl panels, the floor, and to the bracing under the quarter panel window. I welded a temporary bracket that fastened to the jig next to the seat belt mounting hole. I screwed a bolt in the bracket and the hole to help position and hold the new rocker. They are heavy.
