It's tougher when the price you pay for them reflects what you think you're buying and not what you can actually end up with. But aside from that I surely am enjoying what I'm doing and thru it I've met some really decent folks on this site. Guess you could say this is my facebook.
Anywho, back at the farm...got a little time in the garage. Finished welding the rest of the tail light panel in, trunk latch is back in so no more tie wire. Got the trunk corners in and welded...boy they were almost as much work as installing a quarter panel. Talk about a gross fit, had to cut them up, change the bends and weld pieces in. A piece of advice the Canadian made Spectra ones are dogs...look at trying another brand, they CANNOT be any worse.
Stuck the bumper on to make sure the quarters fit decently before I welded up the tail light panel, I'm happy with it considering the bumper brackets were bent from minor collision at one point.
I added a piece and reshaped a bit, it wouldn't fit sung enough to the quarter panel...off by 1 inch.
Great work! I just started removing my left quarter panel tonight, I see what I have to look forward to. I'm hoping to save my corners but I'm not sure I can get them separated from the quarter gracefully enough.
How's the weather, yesterday was 26F, pretty darn cold down around these parts!
Wow I didn't realize it got that cold there. We just got through a cold snap with temps down as low as -18C/0F. Not much snow yet this year so we've been very lucky so far. May get punished though for just saying that.
Thanks Dieselman...one piece at a time!! Good luck with yours as well.
