I didn't want to replace all the panels on the car, it looked ok when I bought it.....
Hoping the that the rear of the car was good but i've found holes...
I think I know what the answer is but here goes
Whilst tiding up the rear panel lip before welding to new floor, I've found lots of filler in the hinge panel including under the hinges.
The lip has been replaced, I assumed with a repair panel but having a closer look it looks like someone has skilfully shaped the panel, however it does not meet the boot
What is the measurement from boot hinge panel to the lip?
Do these measurements look correct?
The bottoms of the rear quarters need repairing, use an repair panel or full panel?
offside rear quarter needs repair at the bottom and at the rear arch (been patched before)
window opening has extra ventilation
nearside That is a blob of weld
Cant find pic of bottom panel but looks like the other side and you can see hole in last pic below
The steps on both sides have been replaced and welded where the quarter panel would normally over lap
Rear Bins are out at the moment and I have not welded the rear quarters to the new floor
Should I replace all 3 panels? My welding is not great and I'm not confident that I can weld middle of panel without distorting it. Will hire a spot welder for the panel seams
