Rocker Panel Detail Question
« on: May 07, 2011, 12:45:12 PM »
I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but it's probably best I ask you guys anyway.
The car is in the shop and about to receive paint. My panel guy asked me a question regarding the front rocker panels. There are gaps between the folds where he expected sealer to be applied. I told him no, that's normal and it's to allow air to pass through and keep them dry, and to note the rubber flaps on the rear ends that allow water out.
Maybe I'm right or wrong about the air flow, but am I correct in saying that these are to be left exactly as they are and no sealer applied?
