FC front door sill and dogleg full replacement
Posted by: 63vert ()

I’m NOT a body repair guy by any stretch. Both DS and PS need replacement. Clark’s offers these in fiberglass.
I searched and didn’t find much on a photo step by step. Does anyone have any documented procedure and tips that would help me?

Don't know if it will help, but there is a factory body repair booklet on the Corvanatics website.

I found it an interesting read and I'm probably less of a body repair guy than you. No experience in fiberglass panels...

Best of luck in your repair,

Here's a good example of replacement.
FC Dogleg Replacement

Also I noticed that California Corvairs has at least one metal replacement in stock. It may be a better choice than the fiberglass.

Calif. Corvairs may have more than indicated on line. I would recommend a check.

Also, I'm a proponent of metal replacement over fiberglass. Fiberglass can be done to look nice, but it really diminishes durability and resale possibilities.

I used the fiberglass dog leg and it did not fit well at all. It works but if I had it to do over I would try to find a metal one new or used.
