John, how do you plan to handle all of the rust free metal on the quarters? I think you should spray it down with a vinegar, peroxide, and salt mixture so it will match the rusted pieces. It almost looks like you are getting ahead of the rust:thumbup:

BTW, it was nice talking to you the other day, feel free to call anytime:welcome: I just bought a 65 mustang, so I may be making a trip to JJ's in chatanooga in the near future depending on what route I decide to go with it. If I do I will try to arrange a meeting with you, so you can help me deal with the rustang, er I mean mustang:pain:

If you do get over here lunch is on me. J J died a year or so ago. I think the shop is still in business but I don't know who is running it or aanything about it now. It is only a few miles from me on this end of town. The next time I drive by, I will check it out.

John

Oh yea, Bring the vinegar when you come. :D

Looks good. I like how simply you do the rear lower quarters. I would have wheeled the shape first then rolled the rear and bottom down. Your way is much better because you have the ability to adjust the bends better then add wheeled shape to fit. This is what's great about this thread, seeing different ways of getting to the same conclusion. Keep it coming!

That one definitely should have been knocked in the head and left for the buzzards.
Clicking on the pic should take you to my photobucket page of the build. It drove out of the shop...:cool:

Unfortunately, most everyone does. That uni-frame is notorious for holding moisture and rusting from the inside out. Doesn't seem to matter what part of the country they have been in.

Sorry John, I forgot this is in your thread.
I'll go back and lay by my dish now....;)

So, basically, you took a roof and a couple door hinges, and built a car around them

If you guys remember I had some issues with fitting up the LH rear quarter and ended up cutting the inner panel loose and moving it in some. Now that I have been down this road once I have a little better idea of how they fit together......I hope.:)

I spent a little more time fitting them up on the bench and then screwed them to the car as a unit.

I just clamped them together and held the assembly to the car with one drill screw. I will have to crawl under the car and scribe all my trim lines before I take it back apart.

I have tipped the flange at the bumper brace but must scribe the wheel well flange to be sure it is correct before I tip it.

Not sure I will get back to the basement tonight but I would like to finish the wheel well flange and have the quarter ready to trim and install.
