I'd like to weld new sills onto my 460. Anybody know the part numbers for these, or anything about how to cut off the old ones/weld on the new ones?

Stories from folks who've done this surgery or who know how it's done would be much appreciated.[?]

Thanks, Mike.

Unlike those of most of the trucks in that thread..thank goodness, my floor panels are ok.

The part where I'm hurting is in the rocker panels.

Everywhere a hole was drilled (at the factory) for screws to hold the rubber bumper on, rust has started and is spreading.

I have seen a number of 460s on German ebay that, in place of the lower rubber have riveted aluminum rockers along the sides similar to what a lot of people do with jeeps and fj40 toyotas. I am sure someone will pipe in here in a bit.

Mike,

I've had this job done on my '86'. I could look-up the part numbers and I know that I've still got some photos of this job lying around.

Send me a PM.

Richard, thanks but I think 87-300gd wanted the info.
Wanted to at least give you the courtesy to reply to your offer.

Richard,

I sent a PM, and would like to see your pics. That said, I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to hear your lessons learned.

Luke,

I wrote a long detailed reply but, when I clicked on submit, it timed out. When that happens you lose the text you just typed when you hit the back button.

Let it suffice to say that this is a job you don't want to tackle unless you are an experienced body-panel repair person.

E-mail me for more details.
