Default Re: rusty rockers

If your referring to new space frame rocker panels, their not available.If you search there have been many " half A**ed" fixes attempted. The fix recommended by Saturn is to replace these high strength steel sections with new ones. Not available new, means sectioning parts from rust free cars.
See prior posts ( oldnuc) for the name of a Nebraska JY that specializes in Saturn Parts, they may be able to help, or try car-parts.com.
This is not the hardest repair, but it requires several levels of skill above welding on a muffler.

Of course If your not referring to Rusted out rear rocker panels, please disregard my well intentioned reply. The Saturn Body manual shows what's involved. These are torque boxes for the space frame, and do break if not done correctly.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
