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...

And while it doesn't look like much, it took all day to do it...

Cut a piece of anodized diamond plate to fit, mounted the through bolts with countersunk screws to hold the bed sides at the bottom, then mounted the access doors for the battery and fuel fill. Then masked off and bedlined the bed sides, tail gate, and front bed panel. Then installed the stainless bolts for the bed side fenders. Also, not shown, but the new chains for the tail gate are on as well...

I have installed the headliner and repaired/dyed/installed the door cards. The door seals, window channel seals the windshield and wipes, along with the door mirror and the vent shades...

Reinstalled the dash today, built out and refinished the 68 Camaro console, reworked the trans tunnel to make removing the trans easier in the future, and installed both the bumpers...

For today's update, I installed the rear view mirror and visors, trimmed the console to fit, and installed it, and installed the console gauge pod and gauged, and fabbed up a gauge panel for the dash. The reason for this, is I didn't like the digital gauge set up i had, it just didn't fit the theme of the build i was going for. The fuel gauge doesn't work, and didn't on the other set up, got to trace that out, and although the new gauges were to come with senders, mine didn't have a temp sender. The oil pressure gauge didn't work with the sender for the other set up, so i hope that is the case for the temp gauge as well...

The dash panel is aluminum, and in this pic, is just roughed in, I ran out of time for the day. I am going to brush it, but if it is still shiny, I will paint it black...
