We trimmed the majority of the damage quarter panel skin, leaving the original edges and creases in place so that we could accomplish two things. First of all, this will allow the media blaster better access to the inner structure of the car. Second, it retains the alignment points for when we go to install the new quarter panel. When that time comes, we will install the deck lid, quarter extensions, and door before trimming the remaining edges of the original quarter panel. This will allow us to align the new panel to those pieces properly.
We took a few minutes to make a closeout panel for the old heater box because we will be installing a Vintage Air AC system.
Next up, the media blaster!
