Silly me thinking I could get this job done in one weekend. But it’s done now! Seems so straightforward, but it takes a lot of time – there are so many steps and little things to do. Worst parts were welding the tail panel from inside the trunk, and welding the quarters to the roof from inside the passenger compartment. There is just enough room in both places to get the job done, if you angle your body just right so you can see what you’re doing. I bought bigger straps – HF 2” @ $10 each on sale. Even then I had to double up the HF strap at the base of the rear window – I had one going each direction which to some degree allowed me to pull one side or the other tighter. My door gaps shrank a little, and the body line moved up a hair. I suggest that others clearance or slightly bend out the very bottom of the door jamb where it meets the rocker (in between where it’s welded to the rocker and where it turns outward to meet the jamb). Scratches in the primer suggest that the quarters did not sit down as snugly on final fit as they did during testing, but I’ll never know for sure. I already anticipated having to work the doors to make the gaps right. I used some leftover oak flooring (very hard wood), long machine screws (can’t recall size, maybe 5/16” - the nuts called for a 1/2” wrench) each with 3 nuts (just small enough to fit through the outer bumper bolt holes in the quarter) and 4 washers (the outermost one slid in between the quarter and tail panel prior to tail panel removal), some 2x2 screwed to the oak, and a clamp to hold the quarters in place so I could remove the tail panel to weld up the crossrail extensions. I forgot (or maybe was afraid) to re-strap the rear and my rear valence-to-quarter gaps are pretty big, but will get weld-filled anyway. Getting the tail panel flush with the ends of the quarter proved impossible. I would have had to pull the top of the tail panel out so far that the top trunk jamb would have been totally wrong – the quarter and tail panel would have barely overlapped, if at all. Alternatively I would have to slide-hammer around the outer tail light opening, but worried that would deform the panel. I’m likely going to weld-fill that seam too, so I’m fine with it. Still need to weld the outside of the quarter-roof seam, and weld on the trunk gutters and latch support panel. For kicks I threw the bumper on. It fit without drama. Then there were hours and hours of weld grinding fun. And I will have you know that since Jan. 8, I had no beer. On a mission to lose weight, and it's working. I've lost enough that I can have Michelob Ultra now, but have to stay away from the local ale houses until I'm closer to my target weight.
