Buick Regal 1978-1981, Rocker Panel by Goodmark®. The rocker panels on your classic car are the panels below the doors and between the wheel wells. Their close proximity to the road makes them vulnerable to impact damage from stones and gravel, creating chips, dings and dents, and exposure to water, snow and road salt makes them predisposed to rust. Damaged rocker panels are not only unsightly, they can affect the structural integrity of your car. To make a proper repair with the correct replacement parts you need rocker panels from the restoration experts at Goodmark.

Since they're located so low on the vehicle and out of the average line of sight, rocker panels are often neglected. They're hard to clean and wax effectively unless you get on your knees, so they seldom get serviced as thoroughly as more accessible panels. But when you're performing a restoration, every body panel is important, and decades of neglect and exposure have left the rocker panels on many classic and muscle cars banged up or full of rust holes.

This damage is not just a cosmetic issue. Because the door opening is just above it, the rocker panel must be strong enough to support and give strength to the body structure. A rusted out rocker panel can affect door fit and in some cases make the vehicle unsafe to drive. To repair the rocker panels on your classic or muscle car you need parts designed specifically for your car that will directly replace the original panels, the kind that are made by the restoration experts at Goodmark.

Restoring cars isn't just a business for the people at Goodmark, they're also car enthusiasts and restorers just like you, and they wouldn't make anything they wouldn't install on their own cars or trucks. Each rocker panel is CAD/CAM designed to make sure it exactly replicates the original panel, then it's manufactured with the most modern tooling. Each design is test fit to make sure it looks and fits perfectly. Many Goodmark parts have been approved by the manufacturers of the original equipment and are licensed to be sold as genuine replacement parts.

Goodmark has inner and outer rocker panels for all popular classic and muscle cars. These panels are dimensioned to exactly replace your originals with the same gauge steel to ensure structural integrity. Goodmark also has rocker moldings and fasteners and all the related parts needed to restore this area of your classic to concours condition.

Goodmark® was founded in 1991 by car enthusiasts, restorers and collectors just like you. They recognized that there was a need for quality restoration parts, especially sheet metal parts, if the restoration of our beloved American classics was to continue. Since that time, Goodmark has created a complete line of sheet metal, trim parts, and accessories for popular cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and for previously difficult to restore cars like the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda. Goodmark uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing) software and modern tooling and manufacturing techniques to create parts that are identical to factory original for perfect fit and finish. Quality parts tooled and manufactured by Goodmark are enabling many more American classic and muscle cars to return to the road, looking just as fine as the day they rolled off the assembly line.

Warranty Information

Find out everything you need to know about the product warranty

Goodmark warranties its parts to you the original purchaser, to be free from defects in manufacturing and materials for a period of 120 days from the original date of purchase. You must notify Company by phone, email or writing within the warranty period to make a claim. Goodmark also will require pictures of the defect prior to a claim being filed. Liability of Goodmark under this warranty is limited to the replacement of the defective part or a refund of the purchase price of the product. Goodmark hereby disclaims all other warranties, whether expressed or implied, including but not limited to all warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Goodmark is not responsible for damage caused by abuse, incorrect installation, modification, shipping, accidents or normal wear; nor is Goodmark responsible for labor charges, inconvenience or other expenses related to installation or use of Company products.

Goodmark Sheet Metal FYI Due to the nature of the material and production, the sheet metal products you receive may have scratches, dings, small dents and other minor imperfections which are considered normal. These imperfections will easily be corrected during the initial filling, priming and sanding of your repair or restoration. Goodmark does not consider dings, minor dents, scratches in the EDP primer or any other minor imperfection to be defective or damaged. ALL sheet metal panels will require some preparation and manipulation during the install process for a show quality fit and finish. Goodmark recommends that all sheet metal panels should be test fit before any prep work or paint is applied. Minor modifications such as elongating mounting holes, adding shims, etc, are normal and may be necessary when you are installing the product. A few key facts to note are: Some driving conditions such as racing can put added stress on a vehicle's frame causing it to twist out of the factory's original tolerance specs. Poorly performed body work from a previous collision or restoration can cause problems with the body structure to which the panels are attached. A vehicle that has been sitting motionless, collecting rust, etc. for years may have developed a slumping frame, especially a sub framed car, which can cause fitment issues when installing new sheet metal products such as floor pans, fenders, doors and quarter panels. The above mentioned situations are just a few key examples that can cause sheet metal panels to be misaligned during a repair or restoration. One other fact to consider is the tolerances on a classic vehicle were not nearly as exact as they are on today's modern vehicles. The primary reason is the assembly of most vintage or classic cars was performed by hand, not by the robotics that are used in today's modernized facilities. Because of this, the mounting points and bolt-holes were unique to each vehicle. Due to the above procedures performed in the past there really is no such thing as a direct, "bolt on" body panel when it comes to older vehicles. Goodmark recommends that you hire a licensed professional that possesses the proper tools, knowledge, skills and experience necessary to install the new panels on your vehicle. A professional can anticipate or repair any imperfections your panels may have prior to installation. Prior to returning any defective body panel or sheet metal item to Goodmark, please contact Company customer service department. You will be required to send us a digital picture of all defects before you receive an RGA. Goodmark will not replace a panel should it be deemed that the panel is not defective, nor will we give compensation for labor fees associated with installation.
