Almost done fitting the LS quarter.
This pic showes how little is left of the top edge.Im no Jessy James so Im reusing the outer quarter window edge and the edge around the top where the stainless trim goes.I need to trim the new quarter slightly to get the area where the welding will be done a little lower.Also pics of how it will look with the stainless trim around the edge.It covers most of wher the welding will be done.
This pic showes wher the new quarter comes up short.Hard to see but the edge above the screw from the old quarter needs to be reused.
This pic showes another short area.On the 65 this is an exact fit but the 64 needs to be trimed around the beuty trim area and welded to the new quarter.The 64 quarter extends in further.Also I have the tail lights installed because the buckets get flimsy and I dont want them not to fit properly after.
This pic showes where the quarter needed to be trimed so it would not sit high.Note the slice up and to the left of the screw.Also the edge that slips under where the OE quater went was originaly bent horazontaly and I bent it verticly and flaired the edge so it would fit properly.
Here is what I think was another short area.I had to trim the trunk extention because it was longer than the quarter and didnt look good.Dont know how long it should be because I had shins on and they were a lot longer here.Dont look at the surface rust I still need to do a lot of prep work before installing the quarter.LOL
A pic of how good the door gap looks.It looks better than when I started but that could have to do with the crappy job with the skins that were on before.
More pics next post because Im limited to ten per post.
