hey y'all,

i've been strippin down and priming the body of my 40 for the last two days.  holy crap it looks so much better in primer gray.  ha ha.

while doin so i found a truckload of rust and junk on my rocker panels.  since i have no problems with it, and my running boards are hazardous to pets, small children, etc. b/c of their enormous wingspan, i decided to just cut it all off.  seems easy enuf, and i'm fixin to go do it now.

my question isn't about the cuttin or removin, it's about afterwards.  

do y'all have any suggestions for some beefy protection?  i read the tech article already and like that idea, i was just seeing if anybody had done it differently.

thanks,
jonathan

I think the question is if you want to reinforce the body thats there, to make it more impervious to dents etc. Or if you want some true sliders a la Christo's 80 series masterpieces. If you just want to reinforce it just grab some angle iron weld that sucker on and forget about it. :D

Here is my rocker guard set up. 2x4 metal tubing that is welded to the frame with 1 1/2" tubing.
