WTB 944 Rocker panels

Anyone knows where to get L+R rockerpanels for my 944 turbo ?

Here in Europe the panels ar not stock at Porsche or any other vendor anymore and I need them due to the too rusty panels on my old restoration project.

Please anyone....new or used, I don't care as long as they are in good condition.

Thank for your help.

Hi, I faced exactly the same problem when I needed to replace both of my sills. In fact I bought a set of third-party sills from a company similar to the one you found (I had not heard many good things about the fit of the product from that outfit). However, the ones I bought proved to be just as bad. So, I tracked down a set of second-hand sills (see another of my posts for details) and used those. I do not regret it, I dont think you can get the right look with any of the aftermarket stuff. The lower lip is always different and the rear quarter panel is never profiled correctly. If you do use them, be prepared for a lot of fitting issues. I wish you all the best. BTW, where in Europe are you based?

My understanding is that a rusty car when presented for licensing inspection won't pass muster in countries such as Germany. What I wonder, however, is this a question of appearance or strength? I suppose the likely answer is 'all of the above'. But, if it's the former can you not simply clean things up and put some 924 rocker covers over the offending area? This is what I have in mind:



Hope this helps.

Damaged/rusted/holed rocker panels or sills are considered a fail on inspection in most European countries. Reason: On unibody cars they provide a fair bit of strength to the structure.

A good body shop should be able to cut the rusted areas out and patch weld in panels to repair. Also, that panel is quite a simple shape to make from scratch. Talk to your local body shop.
