We decided not to cut the rockers because I was feeling really weak. My body was already staring to bow badly in the middle and my doors would not close. We added some jack stands under my belly to help support me. Whew, was I glad. Once I was sitting better, we thought a makeover might be in order. So, off with the old paint and surface rust and bring in the primer. As much as I hate to say it primer looks much better than my old skin.
The first of many operations was to fix the body bolts. After checking my underside we learned that my PO had a shoddy 2" body lift installed. Well we now are back in good shape, new bolts, bushings and salvage the 2" blocks. It was quite a battle, we used a cumalong, some straps and another truck to get my stance back. The process was pretty painful but I feel much better now.
