Today I just washed it and did a quick wax job. It was pretty dirty from about 5 commutes to work!

Ooof. Did you borescope the rest of the rocker to make sure it isn't going to pop up elsewhere? I suppose if it appears there, it's going to be a different patch panel anyway. Is the inner reinforcement in good shape?

On my car? No borescope just what the eyes can see. And in side seems to look good, I think the previous owner drove off a lot of curbs... sctratch that, ledges. As various sections of rocker, an chassis are pressed in/ guoged.

The donor? Minimal rust on the bottom pinch welds, inside the chassis was clean as I took a quarter cut not just the skin.

As for the outcome of my car, I think it will just be cleaning up surface rust once the skin comes off.... But that's for the body shop to do as insurance is paying to fix the quarter panel. I got hit a while back and buddy left his info.

Figured two birds one stone, right

Absolutely - might as well fix it at the same time. Sounds like you have a well thought-out plan, excellent.

Replaced the OEM rad fan with a SKP unit. That green thing isn't a capacitor as I've herd people mention, but a resistor to get half speed. The capacitor would be integral to the motor as they're most often a start aid.

Gave the interior a good cleaning (including cleaning and conditioning the leather - and my favorite part: magic-erasering the steering wheel) to remove all the dog hair prior to vacation. Planning to wash and wax the car tomorrow.

Annnd all washed and waxed and ready for vacation in a couple days. Perhaps it's placebo or due to the paint correction that was done prior, but the ceramic coating really seems to add another level of "pop", especially in person. The car always cleaned up well, but now it's

Oil and filter. Castrol Edge extended and GM filter.
Question- the plastic wire wrap on wires that run across the top of engine fan... brittle and falling apart. Is there a good replacement wrap or leave them bare?
Thanks.

Talking about wire loom, any store has it.
