Oooohhhhh, the penny drops.
So yesterday was a wash, sick in bed. But today I got a bit done. I have started work on the lower quarters, pretty self explanatory. I should have this side done tomorrow weather permitting.
What did you take the patch from?
I would guess that it's out of the '73 New Yorker. That's what I'm doing, the contours are the same.
Came out of the 73 New Yorker I scrapped, one side had a new quarter welded on some time in the past so the metal was good.
It's good to be resourceful and you are certainly that.
I got one side done today, I copied all the required profiles to get it right. There are two bends on the leading edge where there trim fits, while you cant see it in this picture i duplicated that as well. I stitched the metal in so once it is ground off it will require a bare minimum of body filler to make it smooth. Maybe none at all if I am lucky. I also started on the other side as well. Hopefully it will be done tomorrow.
i'm curious as to how you duplicated the lip for the trim.
I created some form blocks out of 3/4in thick plywood, using a jigsaw to cut along the line that matches the curve of the panel in question. I clamp the metal between the two blocks of wood in a vise along the line to be folded on. Then I use a plastic mallet to work the metal over to the required angle, then move the form work to the next line of folding and repeat the process.
I think I have said it before but you are a animal, great work
Necessity is the mother of invention. Great idea and nice work.
Finished welding the drivers rear quarter today and did some patches around the back, they will be welded in tomorrow and I can then say the rear of the car is done.
Goodness that's some fine work.
I admire your talents and will... . That is why I buy them done
I went and visited Dale today at his home and while there we discussed Mopars. Amazing huh? anyway, we got to talking about putting road wheels on both of his Chrysler 300's and what work needs to be done to both the cars. Part of the deal ended up with me taking a set of spare road wheels he had for my own use on the S23, woo hoo! I'm a happy chappy.
Thought you had extras as it was
Yes but not a complete set like this, or with early centers. The last set I had went on the GT.
Nice score. They will finish your car nicely.
