Thats cool I took a long time fitting so I didn't have to un-do anything. Your pic looks real good is that a new rocker?

I'm still plugging away, started stripping the fenders and doors to get epoxy on them, kinda been looking for a rotisserie.

So making good progress lately.the entire driver side has been assembled to check and make things fit right .sheet metal screws in key areas so things go back together the exact same way after welding . So far wheelhouse is welded in ,inner and outter rockers ,part of the trunk up to spare tire well .quarter is in the process of going back on .first i need to coat the inside of the quarter with some undercoating and spray the inner quarter structure and wheelhouse trunk drop off areas. Hopefully the pics work and u can see the driver side progress

You have any pics of the car done? Those aftermarket parts seem to line up very well.


Do it for yourself not the attention of others.

Here is a shot of the driver door open .heres a tip if u get wheel houses get the complete assemblies.they fit to the rocker properly .passenger side i got seperate pieces and the arent even close at the bottom front where it meets rocker flange.there is a little extensi9n off the outter rocker that is a welded spot when together and they dont even come close to meeting up amd the shape is way off .the complete one on driver side fit like a glove once positi9ned and looks like factory in the wheel area

Here is the driver side in comparison .ignore the dust lol.so sometimes aftermarket fits good and sometimes it doesmt .u have to go all in sometimes to have a good fit.i think i might ditch the passenger halve wheel houses and get a complete one . The difference is huge

More progress pics.new hinges hanging ,rocker,wheelhose and quarter panel fitting .the wonky wheelhouse i am going to replace with a complete one. The roof seam is always a nervous part just take your time and dont cut to much off at a time.quarter will go up a little more and it will be perfect seam.

I think it’s so awesome that your basically replacing all metal on a gbody to make it solid again. We rarely rarely see that or at least for me it’s rare. Keep up the good work.

Been working on the passenger side lately.working on the spot where the quarter overlaps the rocker .working on getting the flange to suck in tight to the outter rocker on the bottom . If this isnt tight amd fitting just right good luck having a nice fit in the end with the door on .at least driver side is all done ex3pt final welding of the quarter .i can reference it as i go .thats is key only do one side at a time if u do this .is less work and fitting in the end
