​The new replacement hand formed panel almost done

​The El Camino quarter has several subtle differences then the station wagon so a lower lip had to be created to work & fit.

​The lower window channel will be replaced just as the right side was.

​My shrinker stretcher was used to put in the slight upward bend

​Now the door jam lower patch is welded in.

​All the welds were ground smooth & clean, this channel is good for another 40 plus years.

​The scrap pieced together tire well was removed

​Some aggressive over cutting while removing the old quarter.

​2 new straps were made for the fuel tank.

​The new inner lip is checked for fit to the outer skin.

​Back to the door pillar the inner wheel lip was added & the bottom part of the flange

​Welded & ground clean

​Another small patch had to be mad so the main quarter patch will line up correctly

​The inner panel will need some repairs.

A new repair section was made for under where the taillight goes.​

​That's it for this one the customer has all nice bolt on replacement sheet metal which he will do we are done down the road it goes.

​The quarter panels are El Camino the previous builder was going to use the quarter scraps to build the missing spare tire well, pure junk work.

​Pattern transferred to the sheet stock.

​Lots of time consuming tig welding plus hammer & dolly work to keep the panel fairly straight & in the correct shape. Again mid panel patches like this are not easy to do unless you want a bondo sculpture. 

​Now an inner flange had to be made.

​Its Hammer , dolly  and shrink disc time

​Overall fitment is looking good.

​The old tire well

​Plug weld holes were put in then the back side was coated with rust preventative paint

​Replacing rear quarter panels is about as tough as it gets as there is very little room to work the metal. This was not an easy job.

​Pattern made up for the inner section.

​The left rear window channel needs some attention.

​A new pillar section will be need to be made.

​Now for the long lower channel

​The brace was derusted.
