Hi! everyone was wondering is it necessary to have the car supported by the axle or by the frame to replace full quarter panel which is better or does'nt it matter. I'm asking because mine has no suspension right now, and I don't want to mess things up. Any advice would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance

Currently replacing my quarters and trunk and extender on a '73 and am supporting the car by the rear axle on jack stands. Not certain if it matters but maybe wait to hear from someone that has done it by the frame.

Look on the Full Quarters installed topic and my post. We supported the body of the car, you can see the rear axle hanging. It is nice to have the wheels and tires on for referencing

i am replacing the 1/4s on my 70, do not do what i did, put the stands under the suspension just like it would be on the ground, do not cut out alot of metal structure without supporting the car inside you will be much happier when hanging the new metal. i started off the wrong way and then got help from a real body man. he told me to do it the way i just said and my problems of the parts fitting got much better.
