I have 2 OBWs. One is a 97 and the other is a 99. My son went off of the road and broke the right fog light and scraped the area around the fog light. I would like to putty this and painy the area flat black. Secondly, the rocker panel was pushed up but not causing a problem closing the door. Any suggestions on how to pull this back down. I do all of my own mechanical work.

rocker panel... sledge hammer...

either that or take it to a puller/body shop

body shops shoot rivets into the metal, connect those to a puller
pull the metal out... then bondo the rest

depends on how badly that rocker is damaged

that's one tough area to deal with.

I went to a body shop that some dealers use. He wanted $100. to pull the rocker out. Yhat was the best price that I got. all of the other shops wanted to do all kinds of other work.
