Well seems the boy had his first experience with black ice and slid the Legacy into a sign pile. Looks like I will have to replace the left rear door but he also crushed the rocker panel. Now replacing the door is no problem but I do have a question regarding the rocker panel. From what I can tell by the pictures he sent, the last 18 inches of the rocker (from the midpoint of the door to the wheel arch) have been flattened to a degree where it now contacts the bottom of the rear door. Now the question, can you manipulate the rocker back into shape with a slide hammer? I imagine the proper way is to cut and replace but that is beyond my talent level, a slide hammer and bondo is a “can-do”. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Oh, it’s a 1997 Legacy L sedan and the damage is on the left rear door.
