full quarter pannel or a skin/ patch - 69 z28

not sure if i should to a full quarter pannel or a skin, there is rot around the rear wheel wells, but it only goes an inch around the well. should i do a whole pannel therefor eliminating all the rot, or patch in a skin and risking losing the body line perfection?

I agree, if it's a real Z/28 do it right and replace the entire quarter. For sure there is more rust that you can't see.

Just get rid of the old rust bucket before you spend a ton of money on it. I will be by and pick it and save you the time and money and not even charge you to haul the old rust pile away!

If you do replace the whole QP, it may be a good idea to replace the outer wheel well at the same time. Chances are good it's in similar shape as your current wheel lip.

Whole QP, that way you will only have to feather in the joint at the c pillar instead of all the way around a patch panel.

You can start a Project Journal. You could also give us a sneak preview (a pic or 3) now on this thread.

I'd only replace the spots that are rusted.

When you replace an entire panel you cannot replicate the conditions of the factory at the seams and pinchwelds.

Thus your pinch welds, spot welds will start to rust over time.

Full quarter replacements should be for collisions or severe rust that threatens the structural stability of the body tub.

A Car and its Parts are only original 1x...something to think about anyway....

Hotrodders.com is the best hotrod site on the net, bar none. But if you want the best Camaro site on the net, start visiting "Team Camaro" at Camaros.net. There is a wealth of info there on Camaros.
