Default Quarter Panel Skins

Looking at replacing quarter panels on my 66 coupe. Too much rust and bondo. I do have skins available that come up over the top lip and have a 1/4 - 1/2 inch flange on top. Wondering if anyone with experience doing this has any advice tips or tricks. Always figure if it doesn't turn out as I hope it will that I can replace with full 1/4 panels. Though it would be 300$ plus freight shipping.

Thanks in advance!

You can see how I took full quarters and did them as a full quarter and a skin replacement here.
Doing the top weld means slow and easy, it took me over three hours to weld the top seam so I didn't warp the skin. I did it by zapping it and blowing it down with the air gun for every weld. It came out NICE!!
