Quarter removal

DSCF9252[1]DSCF9256[1]DSCF9257[1]This Acura is in need of a new quarter panel. We sent it to the frame shop last week to get pulled. The quarter was pushed far enough in that it was necessary to pull  it out into shape before removing it. Once back, we can start removing the old panel. All the spot welds were drilled out and old seam sealer was removed. We then used an air hammer to bust the welds loose. Once that was done, we carefully cut the post and rocker where they would be spliced together. We then cut sleeves to go in the sail panel and rockers for strength. Once those were cut we started fitting the new panel. We did get if fitting very nicely but it was too late to start welding. We pick up there tomorrow.
