    Well i found the master of all puzzles. Trying to find the exact angle to get the lug wrench out of the hole between the drop off and quarter panel. 40 minutes later and success.

    Well good news on the passenger quarter panel. A little rust to replace that was under the spoiler, a few black specks behind the wheel well. I also got to fix where someone tucked the wheel well lip with a baseball bat. Whoever did the 2nd repaint of the car liked body filler. I probably removed half a can to find very small dents and body lines that wont take mutch work to fix. I guess i wont be using much of the quarter skin for that side.

    Well the bad news is the drivers side quarter has been replaced at some point with a gm full quarter. And ther isnt a body line left so its getting a skin. The passenger side has a rust hole in the window chanel right at the leaded seam so im going to have to open it up since i can see some pretty severe rust forming in the roof to sail panel seam on the inside. If its to bad hopefully those dynacorn full quarters for the right side materialize soon just in case the inside is a basket case.
