69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

Well 2 questions. Does the interior quarter panel go behind this piece of metal (where screw driver tip is in pic) and as I have it now or does it go on the outside (the side the.screw diver is.touching. It seems to me it goes as I have it in the pic.
Second question is I assume there is a piece of trim missing in this same area. If so it would be kinda hard for the panel to go there also.

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

By "interior quarter panel" I assume you mean the Vinyl rear "door" panel?

If so then the panel clips on the side where the screwdriver is.

and the parts you need are called "U-Shaped Quarter Door Jamb Seals." I haven't found a good supply of them: the repops are pretty bad. However, you might give these a try: Quarter Window U-Jambs | SoffSeal J-51132

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

Thanks Bruce for the response and the link. Yes that is the panel I am referring to. Seems odd to call it a door panel when it is not covering a door.

Yup, it is.

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

Ok so in my pic the door panel is on the wrong side of the jamb metal. I went and switched it over and although it cant be seen the jamb metal in that area has a small "T" in it that holds the now switched door panel a little off of the metal where the screwdriver is touching. Does the U shaped (soff seal) molding slip behind the door panel, go on top off the door panel or stop short of the door panel?

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

Also might be kind of hard to see in the.pic but after switching panel over to other side the rubber.sweep that is attached to the.door panel is very tight at the.forward edge and is not even touching the.glass on the aft end.
Not sure how to remedy that? The seal on the outside appears to be uniform.
These are brand new Legendary panels. Once upon a time this 69 (car was only 6 months old) was hit on the right rear. At that time the right quarter was replaced. Learned that tidbit from original owner. Maybe this alignment is related to that?

Did you check the quarter glass - track adjustments?

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

Not sure how that is done. Shims somewhere? Never heard of that?

You have to make sure the adjusting studs aren’t frozen up. Loosen the track nuts and use a #1 or # 2 regular screw driver to turn the stud in ( tighten ) or out ( loosen ) to pull the tracks in or out. Tightening the lower set tips the top edge of the glass out or tip it in by loosening. The upper set will move the glass in or out in plane to align with the door glass and gasketing.

Do you have the Fisher manual, it’s in there. Or it might be in here.

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

There is a pretty good adjustment video on youtube. Type "69 chevelle window adjustment " in the search box and it brings up a video of a guy explaining how to do this on a red Chevelle. There are other youtube vidoes for window adjustments on other Chevelles, Camaros, and Firebirds that use the same basic procedures.

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Re: 69 Rear Quarter Panel Question

Ok the video definately helped out. The window in and out is adjusted by loosening two bolts that secure the support bracket. They are located at the very top, on the outside of the structure. This info is in the Fisher manual but just a three sentence paragraph describing adjustments. Same info is not found in any of the diagrams.
Seem to recall they lay out adjusting the door window a little better as I did that several years ago.
