Rear Inner Wheel Well contour HELP

We're trying to figure out the correct line the rear well should have.
The pictures are of the driver's side facing the rear of the car. I'm pointing to the line that we're unsure of. The original metal has a very straight line that we believe was cut there and isn't original. The replacement metal goes farther out, but we don't know exactly how it should look.

Does anyone have a closeup picture of this area?





Happy New Year!

Hi,
I've gone through this repair in that area on my 67. I had alot of requests for the template, so I made a template off of my originals and then made it into a pdf file. You can print it out; should print out lifesize on a letter size paper.

Go to my website: Squid's Fab Shop Home

On the left is the navigation menu.....click on the wheelhouse filler pdf file.

You can also go the the "trunk" page and see what they look like being installed (scroll down it's in there).
Let me know if they work out for you.
Good luck!

Dave

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the pictures and template.

Squidtone, I know the 66 and 67 qtrs are slightly different, but the template area is good for both years, right?

Well I can't say for sure, but if I had to guess, I'd say wheelwell fillers are the same pieces for 66 and 67. Replacement outer wheelhouse numbers are the same for 66-67; I'd say the wheelwell filler is the same too.
