9/7/2003 - Not for the faint at heart! Body work progress

The last shot of the old quarter on the car.

Well, I knew the passenger quarter panel was going to have to come off, but I STILL wasn't prepared to see my car without it. :wink:

Image

The rear trunk panel was simply easier to fix by cutting it out at the spot welds and replacing it with the good piece I had from the Bird Pile (thanks John and Bruce!)
Image

Image

Not sure how much of this rocker we are going to replace. It was damaged some in the accident too.

Image

Trunk extension doesn't look too bad, and the finish panel between the backlight and the decklid opening is good.
Image

Image

The inner structure was modified during previous body work (did I say that nicely enough Jeff? :lol: ) so we are going to go ahead and use that from the new quarter as well. Almost looks like it could be a 4 door! :shock:
Image

The old outer wheel house, wrinked and unuseable
Image

The front half of the old quarter. We saved the back half as a patch panel for a possible future project. Mine or somebody elses.
Image

From the inside. Ouch!
Image

We took the rear trunk panel off too. Was simply easier to replace it with a good panel than fix the old one.
