Top of Quarter Panel Repair

The top of both quarter panels was beat down and welded.

This was to make the car more like a roadster as these were apparently used to make a hotrod.

 I had to cut it all off and make my own, keep in mind I have to guess what should be right.

I will have to fix the lower landau bracket hole by making some tooling to locate a hole saw.

As I thought
