getting the shape back in my quarters

On my nova I put new partial quarters on it about a year ago and got everything rouhg finished and primered. I'm now getting back to the body work and going to use a black guidecoat on my primer to help me fill and block the car. My problem is when we put the half quarters on the body kinda went flat. I don't have that contour anymore where that rolling body line is right in the middle of the quarter. How do I go about filling to get this arched contour back? I know partial quarters was a msitake.

you can go to harbor freight and purchance an item that wodworkers use to get exact curves on stuff. they are like little red things about 12 inches long and when you put them up there the fingers move and hold the pattern. you can find anther nova and do this and it will get the exact pattern. i wish i could remember the name so that would help you out.
