While removing the body of my 22 Coupe I noticed a problem with the rocker panels. The one on the drivers side has been cobbled and hangs down about an inch and a half. The doors close great and from the side you can not tell. Is this a big fix? The car has a very nice interior installed. How should I go about the repair?

Without crawling under my coupe to check I would say that nothing about the wood framing you show looks correct.

Is the rocker panel flat across the bottom?

If you go to www.fordwood.com check out the body wood illustrations for the 18-22 Coupes. They may give you an idea of what the wood might looke like.
The main body sill looks to have been replaced. Anyway the zinc plated bolts have either been added for support or?

The rocker panel curves inward to the base wood. They also match the curve of the door. (step plate area)

The wood is the entire structure of your car and MUST be solid.

Umm... that looks yuck but if the car is solid & door shuts nice, don't mess with it much.
Maybe jack under the sill and see if it moves much. If the door gap gets bad or starts to get hard to shut, then stop & basically re-enforce what you have as it sits. Anything else gets close to a total body dismantling and that can be messy/expensive ect.

I agree with Kep. If it is solid and looks good and is solid do not worry about it.
