Your Ford Mustang is comprised of hundreds of different Mustang body & sheet metal parts that are designed to protect your car from damage as a result of collisions, road debris, or the weather. When you are thinking about protective metal body parts, the Mustang doors, hoods, and quarter panels are probably the first things that come to mind. Why? Because you and everyone else can see them just by looking directly at your Ford Mustang. But what about the body parts that are not always in your line of sight?
Though you likely rarely think twice about them, your Mustang rocker panels and Mustang rocker panel moldings provide essential structural support for your car. Located between the front and rear Mustang wheel houses and below the doors, the Mustang rocker panels provide sturdy reinforcement for both ends of your vehicle, while preventing the bottom of the car from sagging in the middle.
While the Ford Mustang rocker panels are already durable enough on their own, the Mustang rocker panel moldings supply an extra layer of protection, while providing the lower portion of your car’s body with a distinct decorative touch at the same time. The Mustang rocker panels and Ford Mustang rocker panel moldings are the only parts of your Ford Mustang’s frame that connect the front and rear of your vehicle.
Because your Mustang rocker panels & Mustang rocker panel moldings are located near the wheel-wells and are close to the road, they are constantly at risk to various forms of damage. After years of providing structural support while you burned rubber thanks to your high-powered Mustang engine on the highway, or whipped around rocky curves on backroads, your original Ford Mustang rocker panels could begin to show signs of rust. Because your Ford Mustang rocker panels cover such a large and important area of your car’s body, is important to protect it from rust, corrosion, and exterior harm of any kind. If your original Mustang rocker panels or Mustang rocker panel moldings have become damaged beyond repair, it is time to replace them immediately.
