Repairing front lower fender mount.

Recommended Posts

I pulled the right front fender off my 260z to repair a rust hole in the battery box area. When I did I found additional rust in the section of the rocker extension where the fender mounts.  I figure I am going to have to fabricate a patch for this area and am looking for ideas and advise on matching the shape & making sure the nut inserts are correctly located.

The expensive way, proper way would be to buy the rocker replacement from Tabco, https://tabcoparts.com/16740.html

and cut out the piece you need and weld that in.  You could also just cut out the rust and make up a patch and weld it on top.

Check thoroughly in that area because the rust can be quite extensive.

Does the tabco rocker include the section that extends forward?  I always thought it was just the outer cover under the door.  My rocker does have a few small holes so if it includes the front section it would be the way to go.  The good thing about having a hole is that I can get a look at the inner rocker & it looks to be in good shape.
