If you want to do it low budget. I read this on someone's website. Go to HomeDepot and buy some wood moulding. That has the same contour as the Supra rocker panels. Cut them to the same size and sand the ends to match. Prime them good and use a good quality paint. Screw them back into the same screw hole locations. If done right it will look just as good as the originals.

Wood trim for rocker panel moldings... :shock: Yes it really works! :shock: See instructions on the "Modifications" section of my website.
If you can't find a very close match to the profile you need, the wood trim can be altered very easily with a hand plane. It took me 10 minutes to do a set. I clamped them down to the front edge of my workbench and planed away the unneeded material to get the exact profile I wanted.
Drill the screwholes in the stock locations, countersink the screws, then use several coats of oil based exterior paint to seal them up well. (I used a can of black Tremclad rust paint and a brush) I've had them on one of my cars for about 4 years now, and they still look perfect, with no signs of rotting. YMMV, since my cars are kept in the garage and don't see rain very often, but I'd expect them to last many years if the paint seals them up well.

It's the trim piece under the doors, running from front to back wheel openings. A real good location for rusting out. HTH

Ditto. After giving my car her first wash of the year last night i really need to do something about some of my moldings, but not ALL of them :roll: . Imput or even pictures of this product on a MKII would be great
