Quarters off

IMG_1177 IMG_1178Today we had the glass guys come out and pull the side window and the back glass first thing this morning. We then got to work on cutting the smashed up quarter off. We did, as you can see, get it off the car later in the afternoon. We located the spot welds that hold the quarter on. After that we drilled them out with a spot weld cutter. This  special drill bit, cuts the metal out where the weld is with out drilling a hole all the way through. We then used an air hammer and chisel to separate the outer panel from the inner panel. Tomorrow we will clean up the edges on the body and fit the new panel. Hopefully tomorrow we will get the new one back on and welded up.
