WHAT HAVE I DONE!?!?!?



lol

got the driver side rear quarter panel mocked up thanks to Luke (pirite)

lots 'o cuttin'







trimming the excess from the fiberglass panels



I ground the edge of the flair down as far as possible to have the same effect of "rolled" fenders of a metal flair



Then after numerous test-fits and trimming until it sat just right, I beveled the flange so that once I bod the flair to the body of the car from behind it, the top surface of the fiberglass will be flush with the top surface of the existing metal (will make for easy body-filler work)





(lots of dust flying in those two pics)

mocked up with screws for now:







look how much more wheel I'll be able to run....



That's all for tonight....I'm going to try to get the other side to the same point over the weekend....
