This car had sustained some crash damage in the tail panel at some point, and it appeared to have extended into the lower portions of the quarter panels. The damage wasn’t obvious at first glance, but you could see the remnants in the trunk floor and the thick filler on the tail pan.

There was obvious evidence of previous repairs to the quarter panels, so we cut those pieces out and elected to repair the bottoms of the quarter panels rather than replace the entire panel. We tried to keep as much original GM sheet metal on this car as possible.
This is the lower quarter that was cut off.

And the backside showing the poor repair job…
