Alright here's my progress on the new rockers.


After taking measurements from the small sheet metal piece, I transferred them to the 3/16 plate.



Next, I marked the slots I wanted to cut out. First i drilled a small hole in the start and end of each line. The white lines will be cut.





Once those were cut using the plasma cutter, I started the bending process. I used the small sheet metal piece as a guide.


Once I finally got it all bent, I added some ribs inside.



Still need to go and weld up and smooth out the seems I cut, and make "caps" for the ends. The ends will be tapered to follow the wheel arches.

Thoughts, comments, concerns?
