that was an idea we kicked around. too bad i already cut it out. not sure if the lap joint would have worked cause the guy is a metal fabber and we were worrying about his thoughts on that and coming in and seeing it lapped on. not that it's wrong but it's just him misunderstanding. On another note, he might not see a flange or shall I say backing strip? I kind of want to do the backing strip cause in the rear by the tail lights there will be 3-4 patches that have to be made before the quarter even goes in, and I already foresee people looking at me wondering, 'why isn't the quarter welded in yet'? So if I did the backing strip that would take less time overall than a flange, and it wouldn't hurt the shape so less mudding too.
