Default Rocker panel, cab corner replacement ???

Back on the old forum y'all had a great write-up on using longer rocker panels with pics how to bend the end around to form the cab corner. I can't find that thread in archives here anywhere and wonder if I just missed it or someone might have the pics they could post back up since I failed to download it years ago???
Thanks guys!

Not sure about longer panels, because most are stamped for the J-trucks. I did just order a set for a Cherokee though, and the are much longer. Since I only need the outer skin, they will have plenty to wrap around the ends. The part inside the doorjamb is different though, so if you had to replace that, you'd need the J-truck panels.

Default Long Rockers

The ones we bought were extra long. We extended back to the corners. You can see pictures on an earlier post by me.

Should add a link to Angry_Truck's photo site. He puts my work to shame.

That takes talent ! The cab corners and rockers were in bad shape on the 715 I have . I sandblasted and osphed the panels and replaced the corner with a corner that was fair at best , and put a coat of filler on it .I hate to rip it all apart , but i know it will just be a matter of time when the rust will show up. The photos really help ,and gave me some ideas. Thanks
