So yesterday i went to look at a quarter that a friend of a friend had packed in the back of storage. Its not the best piece but i cant expect much from a 45 year old quarter. It need some love and tlc but it my only option. It better than waiting around for who knows how long for anothe not knowing the condition and paying almost double to get it shiped to me so im just gona use this one. Its a lemans quarter from a convertable so ill have to cut it on the body line to the trunk area and it should b fine. Looks like it realy only needs a lower quarter patch but will find out when i strip it. Other than that just alot of dings and dents but thats why the make body hammers and that great stuff called bondo. Hopefully i can get it good enough were i do t need more than an 1/8 inch of filler. Wish me luck

Thanks mrbill. Im trying not to show the little three year old boy inside me criying and taking a temper tantrum. Started to weld in the lower quarter section today and ran out of gas and welding supply place is closed for the holiday. Have to wait till tomorrow. Want it done as fast as possible so it will b like it never happened. Out of site out of mind. Thanks for the compliment.

Everything welded in and started the body work on it. And when i say started the body work i mean ill give it a first coat and rough it in and have my buddys finish. Im by no means a body man. Think This quarter will have less bond on it than the origanal quarter maybe a 1/16 -1/8 after primer. Only spot were it needed more bondo was were the quarter meets the trunk. Had a little dip in it about 6 inches long.
