    No, the outside edge. 70's on the outside edge are a sharp blanked edge. 71's and later have the edge rolled over or "hemmed".

    Looks very nice. What type of undercoating do you have in the wheel well area?

    It's a mix I experimented until I figured out, some YEARS AGO... asphalt based mastic mixed with Evercoat undercoating.
    I shoot it from a gravity fed gun that kind of spits the thick mixture out... the orifice in the gun has no needle, just a large rounded bulb that presses against opening which is 3/16" -1/4" diameter... I found the gun in some crap from our plant and no one knew where it came from or what it's original purpose was, I adapted a top so I could screw an evercoat can onto it.

    Everything I found prior to coming up with this never had enough"BUILD"

    Here is another from a 69 Camaro wheel house as well...
    The mix I came up with is asphaltic like original and it builds correct for the thickness..

    The stuff on the inside is just over what was there... must be for the extra sound deadening on the LT package... I had never seen it until dealing with 73 LT optioned cars. 102_9354.JPG

    secondgenaddict,
    In post #122 where you show two pics of the quarter panel date codes, what area of the quarter should I be looking at? Door jamb, trunk lid, etc.? Thanks.

    BTW, I found some codes on the inside of my A-pillars. Have you seen those yet?

    This is the DRIVERS QUARTER the date is in the trunk gutter about where the LEADING EDGE of the SPOILER will be when installed.
    Most restored cars with original quarters will not be legible, you may see that they are there, however the least amount of primer fills them in.
    I ensure they are legible and visible by using a needle owl and scratching them out, and tapering the primer back with some 600 right before putting the car in the booth for base.
