Rockers
« on: September 20, 2011, 11:29:30 PM »
Were there any differences in the thickness or construction of the rockers for convertibles and coupes?

Thanks

Lots of differences.
Coupes don't have any of these internal structures, metal is thicker on the convertibles too.

Thanks Mark...I was comparing my 69 z to my just bought 69 convertible rockers and I thought there were some differences. Of course i had no idea of the different layers per your picture. Good info...

Thanks

Way easier for leaves and trash to build up. I cleaned a bunch of crud out of my rockers.
