A little hard to diagnose from a picture but...You may need to cut your welds or spot welds so the panel is loose and then squeeze it in before welding it again. Or, if you did a lot of welding near the bulged area, the the shrinkage from welding can make inboard sections bulge out if not hammered and dollied correctly. If that does not help, perhaps figure out a way to apply a spreading force vertically inside the quarter to suck the area in. Maybe wood blocks shaped to fit and a porta power?
