buy the rockers new, no such thing as "good used rockers", by the time they have been cut/removed from another car, they will not be "good" but bad. Get them new and do it right. Also you should replace the rear panel with the exhaust holes, if it's rusted, why bother? Get new sheetmetal. The rust around the windshields is tipycal for these cars, it can be repaired, and you might consider removing the front and rear windshields to do it right.

that's the beauty of Jaguar, you can get most any parts for any year back to 1948. sheetmetal included.
try XK's Unlimited in California for the rocker panels. They have reproduction panels for a bunch of Jaguar models. Many other places too, so shop around...... here's their site: http://www.xks.com/

Choc: any old car that you restore, you end up spending thousands and as you get close to finishing the job, you can bet the car will be worth a couple hundred dollars!!! haaaa!! just kiddin'. Restoration is for fun and for you own pleasure and because you like that car, and because and because and because, but if you're hoping to make a profit, you might find someone who might like it and pay close to what you put into it, or you might get lucky and find someone who will pay you everything that you put into it. Who knows? Just enjoy the car, everybody loves Jaguars!

I know a couple good companies in Canada, I'll check my records to get their names.
