It`s my understanding that they are now stamping sedan quarters as one piece versus the two piece of previous.

This weekend, I replaced the passenger side inner quarter panel, and installed a new tail panel. I've got a 1/4" gap all the way across the bottom of the trunk lid. I still have a little more tack welding and grinding to do, but its 95% done.

Next on the list is the replacement of the passenger side quarter panel. Work on that will start next weekend.

The old girl is quite dusty, I need to give her a bath!

Just a quick progress report. To save some money, I purchased a HT quarter instead of a sedan version. I trimmed off everything I didn't need from the new panel, did a rough cut of the existing passenger side quarter panel, and temporarily secured the new panel in place with some clamps and a couple self drilling screws. Unfortunately, I can't go any further, because I don't have a passenger side tail light housing, which I need to make sure the holes will line up for it before I do the final trimming and welding.
before the panel goes on for the final time, I'm going to brush a coat of POR-15 on all the rusted surfaces. The rear portion is actually in great shape, the red oxide primer is still there along with the original undercoating. The wheel house extension is in fine shape, too.

Yes, I enjoy watching this car come together. It might not be a bad idea to go ahead and get a tail light corner that you will want to keep and use on the finished car to fit the quarter to instead of some used one.
