Default '97 GP - Bad Rocker Panels

I have a '97 Grand Prix that has bad rocker panels. Anyone know what I can do about this?
Body shop is looking for used ones at the auto scrap yard, but haven;t got back to me in three weeks. Is there any place I can get new ones?

I'm sure they should be available, because they were the same for a lot of years. It'* a very common issue on the GP'* though. Nice part is the rocker that rusts is typically only external and there'* another layer behind it that'* the actual door rocker and floor. Meaning the majority of the issue is cosmetic.

I know I have seen replacement panels online for it, just not sure where off the top of my head. Where are you and 2 or 4 door?

I've seen some on ebay. You can buy the panels and have a body shop weld them in, one of my friends did that. If you want to ask him about it, his username is boostedponty on here.
