1967 SS Rocker Trim/Moulding

Does anyone know exactly how the rocker panel trim was installed? Did it have clips screwed into the rocker panel and fender or was there a spot welded head to accept the moulding. Looking to install the new set in the correct fashion.

Screwed on clips spaced along the rocker.

Re: 1967 SS Rocker Trim/Moulding

Here's how I did it. Had someone hold the rocker molding in place while I ran a thin tape across the body where the top of the molding met the body.
Took the molding way and then used the tape as a guide to intall the clips evenly spaced.
Be sure to put one near each end.
The top of the molding will slip over the top of the clips and hold.
The molding get pulled flush to the body at the bottom and you will see where a screw goes through the molding tabs into the underside body.
Be sure to have someone help you so that you get it squared straight and also the ends are lined up at the right spot. I guess you could temp tape the molding in place until the underside screws are in place also.
Done. Not too hard to do once you get at it.
Hope that helps

I think there are also measurements in the assembly manual showing exactly where to drill the holes for the upper clips. Probably in the "Body Complete" section of the A/M.

Re: 1967 SS Rocker Trim/Moulding

I have a assembly manual and I can't find anything about installing the trim. Does anyone have anything to help me out?

5 clips on each rocker, measuring from rear wheel well forward, the first clip is 2 3/4" away and the other 4 clips are 15" on center.

Thanks for the information. How about the measurement up and down? (from door sill down)

I didn't measure the vertical, I just put the molding in place and marked the upper edge. I drilled for the clips upper edges to be slightly below this mark.

Thanks that should work. Any idea what size screws or bolts for the bottom and how to they attach?

I used #7 self-drilling zip screws from my brother's HVAC hardware stash. Wouldn't win any trophies in a restoration judging, but I'm not into that.
