    Quarters 2 door

    Post  Myloth on Sat May 27, 2017 11:24 am

    Could someone supply a picture of their lower rear quarter just the back end past tires. Mine are eroded to

    to the point it's hard to figure out what it was like originally on the bottom.




    A shot of from the underside would help most I have to fabricate some new metal. I just hit all my rust spots past the

    quarters to the front which was a snap but I admit I am dreading these quarters and have for some time but they can't

    last another season. Everything else has  held up well except I think I may have rust underneath my Landau top that may

    require a weld. Front came out good though I think for a quick fix well looks good at 20 yards anyway. Those quarters

    look better than they are underneath there is literally nothing but rust.

    Perfect thanks that metal on the bottom doesn't exist anymore on mine.
