The hole in the dog let is through the inner metal so looking right through both panels. I filled the inner gap with aerosol foam and plastered the inside with undercoat.

Filled the remains of the rockers with foam and used decking screws into the foam to hold the rocker covers on. They are still there.

My repair after 6 NY winters, still holding. I sold the car but, saw it again today and the rockers are still on and the Bondo/fiberglass cover and foam fill of dog leg and the rockers still working. Some blisters on the patch area but gained another 6 winters.
Pic of the before repairs back on this original post.
