Default Rocker Panel removal

I read you're supposed to lift up and they pop off. It feels like I'm going to snap something or I'm going to pull the clips through the fender.

What is the trick to these? I need to remove the fenders.

Freshly media blasted and epoxied! Metal work begins soon!

OK, you were told backward. First, you need to remove the studs frm the backside of the front end. Then you need to push down, not up, to disconnect them from the clips.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

There's a stud that goes thru the fender on the front of the rocker. It is tiny and probably corroded, it has a small nut on it. If you manage to get it off, replace it with a wing nut!

If your rocker moldings are in decent condition treat them like gold. Good OEMs are hard to find and repos are crap.
