With the new rocker held in place with Cleco fasteners, Craig scribed a line where the replacement sheetmetal would meet the original piece. The new part was removed and an additional inch or so of old rusted metal was cut along that line. Any bit of rust you can remove will help you weld in the new panels. Then the new rocker was riveted in place prior to welding. The remaining rust hole (just under his right hand) will be patched later. Craig and Jake will hang the doors in place before doing the final welding on the rockers, in order to check the fit and gap between the doors and the rockers.
