That is one hell of a rebuild you are doing there. Using used parts is SUCH a pain, but still much better than the pain of reproduction.

That is a heck of a find you go there, you lucked out getting another convert quarter!

Ended up using both quarters and rear valance off another donor car. I was just planning on using drivers only, then went and put on the trunk lid and found the top of the pass quarter was totally distorted (car came in without a trunk lid) this was after the skin was already installed. So had to cut off that side and rehash the whole mess. Ended up putting 5 quarters on this car in all after the skins were cut to repair the "new" quarters. Lots of time on this one , but just lucky to find decent original parts to work with.
