Toyota has the rocker panel available for the alltrac. however, i noticed that it extends back into behind the rear quarter panel. What I was going to do is drill out all the spot welds on the top (where the carpet "hooks on the lip") and drill out the spot welds on the bottom (the bottom lip area where people inappropriately put a jack), then cut the rocker panel straight through where it meets the rear door jamb area (hope this makes sense). I COULD just try to form the metal myself to patch up that hole, but i'm not sure how much of the rest of the rocker panel is starting to rot or is fragile. I really want to avoid the body shop on this one since A) my little brother is a hell of a welder and B) i'm pretty particular on how well things get done.


Huh, didn't know that, and sorry I should have mentioned Non-OEM.
I looked into it for the Corolla on a local part supplier computer database and it showed an n/a. I asked out of curiosity about the Celica. He didn't look, but said that they wouldn't make one for that car either, and then something about coupes. Anyway, apparently he wasn't talking OEM and I have not looked into it because I figured it might cost hundreds of $. But thanks, saw the other thread too.

Thanks for any help!

Part of the rocker that needed to be replaced on the Corolla.

This is before I cut the top section off. You can see where the door jamb would work if the entire part was being replace on the 4-door sedan, & it ends at the wheel well.

Apparently the rocker panel for the alltrac has been discontinued by Toyota.

So all in all, it isn't available haha.

Thanks for the pics, I may take my car into the body shop and see what they can do for me.
