Installing Rocker Panel moldings
« on: January 09, 2010, 10:40:17 PM »
How difficult would it be to install rockerpanel moldings on a 65 mustang that never had them on before.  Any thoughts??

Thanks

Just get the clips and screw them to the rocker panel, then use your hand to knock them into place.  A piece of cake.

Of course the screw holes will be a way for water and eventually rust to be introduced to the rockers.  If you add them, make sure and treat the holes and screws with something to prevent rust.

If there is rust there, they will help it to stay healthy and reproduce baby rust molecules in tremendous numbers.

The only 1965 Mustangs to not have rocker moldings were those with the GT option. If your 65 Mustang is an "A" or "K" code car, built after March 1965, it may be a GT. If not, a previous owner removed the mouldings and filled the holes. The easiest way to determine the latter is to look at the lower rear section of the front fender and/or the lower front section of the rear wheel well for Bondo filled mounting holes.
The next question is - why do you want to do this?

Is not having them more desirable!
