Is there any aftermarket patch panel that will take care of the area where the quarters meet the roof. My original quarters are starting to rust through underneath the lead. I've thought about cutting a piece that is above that line off of a salvage yard '67 and welding it in, but am wondering if anyone thinks that might work? Also, '67 quarter panel ornamental vents, are they glued in or fastened from behind? Thanks for any help.

The B-pillar is a tough one – no patch panels that I know of. If yours is like mine, the rust you see is only the tip of the iceberg! There’s like four layers of metal all stacked and spot-welded behind the lead and rust seems to form between the layers. Bottom-line is ‘be prepared for the worst’.

The vents are held on by two stud/nuts on the back of each section. Be careful – the studs are pot-metal.

P.S. – Mr. Campo, most everyone on this forum likes to know a little about who their conversing with so please take a minute and fill out your bio – Cheers!
