    About taking off plastic rocker cover do you need new lower clips and are they hard to remove?
    I had to use shoe glue to hold part of the driver side rocker close to the rear wheel to hold it tight as one of the molded on z clips broke and the panel stuck out a bit. Not sure if I can add a photo here.
    Thanks for any help you may wish to provide. It just seems I never have luck with any vehicle I ever owned...maybe I should just ride my bike.
    Thank You
    Ron

    Today the car has 21 400 miles, but I notice the rust bubbles just above the trim just behind driver's door. As you can imagine it is very distressing and now I have to get it fixed at how much?? and will he other side do it too?? The one fellow said cut out the bottom and paint the rear 1/4 up to the bend line....what will that look like against the big door panel I wonder as the paint has a very fine metallic fleck in it.


    I guess when done I better do what you so wisely did. The tape you mentioned can you give me more details of where/what etc.. I found the 3m caulk on Amazon
    Thanks Ron

    Hi XLRRR8


    I read your post about sealing plastic rocker covers with tape and 3m strip caulk.


    For a long time I wanted a challenger, so just after I retired in I found a used 2013 RT Classic in Pearl Jazz Blue & bought it in June 2016. I got it at a price which I could afford. I did not drive it too much the next summer as the alternator recall was an issue being stranded was not a pleasant thought (car quitting, or the odd one caught fire.) the fix was late coming out and it was not till the spring they had the recall letter to me...in my case whole new alternator. 3rd recall for this car. I do not winter drive it, (but do not know if the original owner did. Mine sit in my sloped uphill drive most time with a Noma car cover on it.
    Thanks Ron
