^ do you mean adding width to fit the new quarters or physically seperating them from the old quarters?

Yeah, the inner quarter panel will have a gap when you put the RSes on. You'll need to fill it of course.

Color is nice. DO IT!

^ I knew the gap needed to be filled but was just wondering how strong the adhesive was there. The adhesive actually wasn't that hard to seperate but the pain was the spot welds in the wheel well. Both quarter panels are off now.
