Datsun 510 Quarter Panel Replacement

On a Datsun 510 when replacing the rear quarter do I need to somehow support the car before removing the quarter? It has no engine or trans and sits on stock tires.

Your car sitting on it's wheels is the best place for it. There is no reason at all to do anything else.

Datsun 510

Thank You

By the way the stud gun idea for shrinking body metal works really well.

defenetly ,keep it on the wheels ...or place the jack stands under the axle if you need more room ...the weight of the car must be on the axle's

Yes, this is a very common error, to put the car on jack stands under the frame or frame member. It MUST be as it sits on it's tires.

Now, this five and dime has four wheel independent suspension (unless it's a wagon) and putting the car up on stands may not be that easy. I don't remember how the rear suspension is designed and don't remember if there is a lower control arm or knuckle that you can put a jack stand under.

Using wheel stands like the ones in this thread (click here for the "Basics of Basics"- Wheel stands) may be an idea too.

I remember doing a 510 back when the car was only about 10 years old! Put "bubble flares" on the quarters and fit the matching glass fenders on the front. it had a Triple S motor in it and a 5 speed, very cool little car. I like those darn things, it's sort of a Japanese 1965 Nova.
