Well you're wrong about that... You are able to get them repaired, however it depends on how much money you want to spend or how much knowledge you have about body work.

Oh it happened! I'm getting half inch sheet metal after smoothing the hole out and welding it shut in the next week or so.

To me, it's not worth it. I fix the rocker panels and the car still needs ball joints, struts, steering lines, heater core, coolant lines ... and even if I fixed all of that it could still break in two when I hit a bump.

Is there any rust elsewhere on the car or just a buggered up floor?

A big piece of 1/2" sheet steel under that hole might add a little more weight to one side than there should be, Gentz. :dunno: However you want to fix it, though.

Mike that really sucks. :( Dave and I saw a Gen 3 that was missing a rocker due to rust and it really looks sad...

Anthony... 1/2" really does seem overly excessive... but yeah. Not much rust on your car, weird that the floor was first to go. I've got rust only on the front passenger floor and it isn't bad at all.
