what way would be best

Hello all
ok, im restoring my first 70 chevelle and am wondering in what I order would be the best way to do this. this is all being done on the drivers side. I did a search but didnt answer my question

I need to replace left rear quarter, inner and outter wheel wells, trunk pan and that area behind the wheelwells that connect the trunk pan and wheel wells to the bottom of the quarter (virticle peice of steel, dont know what its called...filler panel maybe ???).

Im wondering if i should do the trunk pan first,the virticle steel, the the wells and then the quarter... or
wells first, the virticle peice of steel,trunk pan, then the quarter.

I did buy some restoration books but i think they were sent by horse and buggy cause it seems like its been about 2 weeks now but i still have not received them and im getting ichy.

any suggestions would be appreciated

Your best bet would be to work from the inside out, the quarter can be opened up some for access when replacing the trunk pan. Do the trunk pan first then the wheelhouse and quarter panel-IMO. Take your time and fit the panels well before doing any welding. Read up here, do a seach on panel replacment- I think MartinSR has a post on this that covers the subject well. Bob
