Cleaned up the underside of the quarter. Started fitting the quarter replacement panel. Should have that well underway this coming week.

Fitting the replacement panel and stitched the bottom of the quarter back on. Might be time for a scrap metal run!

This car looked quite presentable in the pictures I saw before all this worked started. It goes to show what can happen when you dig below the surface and why restorations are expensive. You're lucky to have the ability to do all this work yourself because I see $20-30k in bills if paying a shop to do it. I wish I had your welding skills.

Keep up the good work.

I wish I had his knowledge of metal work related to auto body.

Plus, if all you have are stone knives and bearskins for tools, this work becomes mostly creative use of tools.

Excellent work by the way

This is real body work done right...This is the type of a job that would lay in a shop and would be worked on when they were slow to keep the price down...And the painted shell would exceed 30k for sure ...My friend just finished a 69 Camaro with a total bill of 215,000 big ones and the cust. was happy to pay it

You guys give me far too much praise, I'm just a hobbyist hoping the effort results in a very nice car.

Should have the quarter burned in all the way tomorrow. Got sidetracked with another project today.

Got the panel in and smoothed out the welds. Ran out of welding wire while I was plug welding the wheel arch. Need to plug weld the trunk drop seam also.

curious RebelMachine,

Which wire feed machine do you have, what wire are you using and what shield gas?

Thanks
