Here's a close up of the finished rocker extension. Because of rodent debris, any water that accumulated in this area of the body couldn't drain out, meaning it became a breeding ground for rust. This part of the body affects the mounting of the toe panels, floor pans, outer/inner rockers, and the cowl ears, so it had to be repaired so the individual parts would have a solid mounting point. Once everything is welded in place, it'll be painted with some zinc oxide primer to protect against corrosion while the rest of the car is being worked on.
