Re: rocker panel ?
Pick up a good spot-weld drill bit. I recommend Snap-on personally, but Craftsman works well too. A spot weld drill bit will cut out the spot weld, but not the substrate metal (unless you drill too far)
First, use a punch and put a dimple in the center of each weld. Next, place the center pin of the spot-weld drill bit in the dimple. Start drilling, trying to stay as even and straight as possible. Usually, the flange will pop when the spot is cut thru. Do this for all the welds. When done, you'll have these little round spots that will need to be taken down with a grinder.
Just be careful not to drill right thru the rocker itself. Watch what your doing.
