That's the difference between restoration shops and production shops.



I was thinking the same thing, a repair isn't the same thing as a restoration.

Got the trunk drop installed this eve. Next on the list is finally fitting the quarter panel skin.

Some time ago I cut the bottom of the replacement quarter to reshape the radius at the bottom edge. Taped the quarter skin in place and started fitting the underside so it matches the NOS panel I installed on the driver's side. I'll stitch the underside back on the skin before installing the entire panel.

Got the brace burned in and worked the front underside of the quarter where there's a fold. Needs a bit more cleaning up.

I went back over your post trying to find what you are going to use as a rust inhibitor for all of that excellent metalwork.  Couldn't stumble on it.  What are your plans?

I can't find anything relating Heid Industries to a rust preventative.  Got a link?

I hit it with Krylon Rust Tough on the backside areas after parts are welded in.
