So farmboy70, do you have any close-up pics of the bottom of the quarter where it mates to the rocker panel.
Here is mine

there is a gap - do I just clamp it together and plug weld it?

I'm curious also. The 71 SSP is one of my favorite cars.

Not sure if you are wanting pictures from my car or the other poster.
My car is finished, maybe he has a post on his build somewhere.
If it was easy everyone would do it!

Cool project, In-Violet/Plum Crazy paint did not hold up well. The factory had to fix cars while still under warranty and cars needed repaints after 2-3 years. I had a friend that was a warranty guy at the local Dodge dealer, and he told me it was one of the worst colors for holding up. Also, fast-forward 3-4 years and Purple cars were not in fashion for most. People wanted much more sedated colors for the most part.
