< BACK Left Rear Quarter Repair Continued NEXT >

Now its time for the front of the left rear quarter. The process is exactly the same.

You can see that the inner rocker and lower wheelwell rust damage I had to repair. These pieces had to be fabricated.

Each piece was fabricated from cardboard templates and hammered & dollied into shape. Here everthing is temporarily clamped in place and adjusted for fit.

Once welded in place, imperfections are ground down. Then everthing is primed and undercoated. Only the areas that were originally undercoated by the factory were undercoated.

Here's the completed quarter in primer. Just like new.

The right side was just as bad as the left.

Here it is several days later. I should have more pictures, but my web space is limited.
