Not to discurage you, but if your rockers have significant rust damage the entire car will have rust damage. It's just the nature of these cars. On the bright side even rusty cars can be saved.

If you don't find a source for rockes. You can buy sheet metal from auto body suppliers. Take measurments of where you need bends, at about how many degrees and get a sheet metal shop or even air and vent shop to bend it to your requirements.
I build the entire bottom 2 inches of both my doors this way. It proved to be an effective and cheap solution for me anyways. The biggest problem I had was finding a shop who can bend long strips of steel over well past 90 degree bends. In my case I needed 150 degrees wich an air and vent shop did with ease!
How did you deal with the doors and the bend around the door? Or did you go that far to make that bend?
