I wasn't happy with the way the repair was going on the LH side behind the door.
it didn't fit right, and just wasn't going together like it should.
I think I can fix it, but it will be a lot of fooling around.
So I just bought a new patch panel, and will start over.

02-01-2012 09:17 AM the LH sides' turn for more rust removal
its the LH sides' turn,

I cut off the rusty stock LH rocker

then made some pieces to finish up the front and rear door jams on that side

after I put those on, I got the LH rocker cut to fit and tacked on

then I got the rusty lower LH rear quarter panel cut off
(I had a access/rust check, hole cut in it already)

and the new lower LH rear quarter repair panel trimmed kinda close

01-25-2012 04:35 PM RH Rear quarter panel is roughed in
I ended up splitting the back side at the fender bead, because of the cuts/fitting already made at door jam

it worked out OK because the bead/roll bodyline at the fender was bigger/rounder then the repair panel, so I was able to fix that at the same time

I cheated and made a doubler for the back side (kinda like putting a flange on it)

now I just have to finish tweaking and welding both the quarter and rocker

then we move to the other side and do it all again

when the other side is done, I can start on the new body mounts that will tie in at the rear door jam and this piece intersect

01-23-2012 09:03 PM rocker is roughed in, so now I'll start on the quarter
I finished cutting off the bottom of my RH rear quarter

I have the rocker roughed in, so now I have a reference point for the quarters' repair panel

I cut a little at a time, on both the rusty stuff that is coming off, and fitting the new piece

while the area was open, I cleaned it up and added a doubler to the back side of the door jam,
(because I am going to move the body mount to that spot)

I think I will need to make the repair panel wider to fit correctly
(I cant get both body lines to match up)
