1958 PONTIAC STARCHIEF CUSTOM SAFARI 1958
Picture at Fairgrounds in Texas
Today I was crawling under the 58 Star Chief and Realize her was something that
wasent the same from car to car.
The rocker panels on this car has a pressed pleats in the bottom about 20" from
the end and in that area there are 2 square openings on each side of the car
and In 2 of the openings there was some sheet metal nozzles and from the other
holes they probably had fell off.
Its when I check my other cars to see if I can Find more of those nozzles I found
out that there is two different kind of Rocker Panels some cars just have slots in the
bottom al the way to drain water.
I manage to find 2 nozzles, and on one there was even a thin rubber membrane
which probably had been on the car I work on but has gone.(sav traces)
Butt on one car there probably hasn’t been any.(Cut away during time)
Here are the nozzels and the small membrane.
Those small sheet metal nozzels probably fell of in tuff climate very
fast in tuffer climate.
So There was 2 kind of Rocker panel produced so now i gone see if ihas something
to do with Plants or change during the year.
