PITA...sanding the rear quarters

im getting into the bock sanding of the rear quarter panels of the 68 Tempest. Im having a crazy time figuring out the contour of the rear quarter panel right underneath the rear side window. wondering if it has a dip between the edge and the fender.

The quarter on the 68 has some wild contours! When you say edge what are you referring too? Describe the area or take a pic and I'll try to help.

This might be a silly question, but can you compare it to the other side?
Can you make a cardboard template?

It's that black area on the picture above. The edge im referring to is between left side of the key hole to the front of the rear tire and underneath the rear window. Trying to find out if it's flush and level or if its concave.

This side doesnt have a dip in it cause I've already put some filler, but I want to make sure it's right before I start on the other side

While I'm asking questions. Can anyone give me good tip on how to clean the window that's been sitting out for years with layers of dirt? Green scotch pad and chemicals?

Yes there is a ever so slight dip at front edge contour of qtr panel.
If I get a chance I will get a picture with a straight edge on the spot.

Is this the section you are referring





These are the original quarter panels on my sons 68 GTO. The forward section on this qtr was for the most part unmolested.
