Keith, You should have waited to get Katie's approval before posting.
Thanks. The gap between the quarter and door needs to come back an 1/8”. That will get me even with the rocker. I’ll adjust the gap before I weld in the rocker piece.Door alignment from leading edge of rocker should be even or at best 1/8" behind. Door should not extend beyond leading edge of rocker.
Umm... I think you may need to revisit this section. While I agree the rocker was a bit too long, I think you cut it back too much. The fender needs to butt against the rocker, but the door gap needs to remain. The door should not be in-line with the rocker, rocker line must be door edge PLUS door gap. Here is a pic of my 69 in that area (factory rockers). When you mate the fender to your flush rocker, you will have the door gap extending into the rocker area instead of fender and rocker meeting flush. Sorry, was late to the party reading this.That door to rocker alignment bugged me. I made measurements on the driver side just to be sure. Driver side was 2” from front of rocker to center of lower rear fender nut.
So, I cut back 1/2” and it looks good. Now, I just need to fill the gap between the rocker a door jamb patch. I can use the strip I pulled off the rocker.
I feel much better now!
