Anyone have experience installing a p/n 57-154085-1 Chevy Front Lower Quarter Panel Repair Panel, Right, 2-Door, 1955 from Eckler's. The one I have does not have the correct shape at the bottom above the rocker area. It is a bulge that should be horizontally more flat.

The experience that I have had was that in the door jam does not fit at all and need to splice it at the corner of the jam or about an 1/8 th inch inside of the jam. Also you will probably need to do some creative metal work of cut and splicing of metal at the rocker area. unfortunately I do not have any pics. Maybe someone else will. Good luck.

Yes, I agree on the door jam. That is fitting nicely, now. But the lower area above the rocker is where I'm having trouble. I guess I will cut the bulge area and reweld it making it less of a bulge.
