Has anyone ordered these rocker panels? I need both driver and passenger sides but they are listed as out of stock. I left a phone message and hoping they still can make those, it would save me so much time as opposed to fabricating them especially since my fabrication skills or the lack of is pretty weak.

And nearly a year later, an update...

I got a different carb, and got it to run, but not the greatest. I carrier it to my buddies house, and left it in his shop, as he is my carb guy. It promptly developed a leak internal to the electric fuel pump so it sat. I got the kit, and it still sat, lol... (I was thrashing on my 67 Malibu Pro Touring build). Finally fixed the pump and a test drive ensured. (this was sometime in January). It didn't shift (4l80 trans and aftermarket controller). So a couple of weeks ago I got around to troubleshooting it, and the issue is, I am a Dumba**... Despite the controller instructions stating otherwise, you CAN plug the wiring up backwards. Shifts fine now... Still not the best running or idling build I have had, so I started fooling with it today. Swapped out the coil with another, same issue. I reran the rockers and a big improvement, some were too tight. Adjusted the carb again now that the valves were good, and all is Golden...

Currently in the body shop where I work on my crap, a couple of blockings on all the sheet metal and it will be ready to paint. I have to do some repairs to the fiberglass stepside fenders, but not anything major...
