My current deployment is almost over with, so I'm starting to plan how to tackle body work on my 65 Fastback project. I'll try to explain the problems and get some ideas on how to start.
Car was hit hard on the right rear, quarter was replaced with NOS. Might be able to salvage, I'll try. Outer rocker was destroyed in repairs, I have a donor car to remove a rocker from and replace it. The last six inches of the inner rocker was bent in a little, I will try to straighten it. B pillar seems damaged, it looks narrower than the drivers side, I think it was compressed in the hit. Roof has some damage where the quarter sail meets, and the impact seems to have popped the leading at the front edge of the windshield post. I am sure there is damage underneath, but hope it can be straightened.
Normally, I would want to align the door and fender before I did anything with the quarter, but I think the alignment on the quarter is already off. So, my thought is to replace the outer rocker first and straighten the inner, then pull the quarter panel off and fix the roof damage, and the B pillar, then get the quarter back on closer to the correct alignment, and hope I can get the door and fender to match up well.
Am I off on this? Should I do something else first? Pics aren't great, but show a little of the problem areas.
I have leveled the car and measured based on factory specs, the frame rails and body positions look like they are fine, nothing leads me to believe there are any alignment problems with the frame rails.
