Dittos KudaKid. we are brothers from the same camp. Scissors Buzzard. AAlaways. Sent you a PM w pix you wanted.Thanks Matt. I was hoping to see the flanged part of the quarters from the inside. Keep that fleet in the air and I will keep my fleet in the AAir as well.
I have a few magnetic ones.. a folding one that doubles as a tag light for the Duster. I stick it up inside the bumper.. need to find a tag light housing.. lolShameless plug now for a china freight tool that feels damn well made, and is rechargeable with a built in USB port. This COB LED strip light has 3 brightness settings, a pinpoint tip light, super magnetic base, and swivel head. I bought it for those times I have my welding hood on, and I'm trying to weld in a dark area. This gives enough light to see before I strike an arc. I think it was $26. A buddy of mine builds circle track race cars and has 3 of these. He swears by em. I saw it at china freight and said oh what the heck. I'm not a gimmicky work light buyer. I know theres people out there that seem to collect every different work light made with different gimmicks to em. Im not one of those people. All I can say is this thing is great. I see myself using this light for a lot of different uses.

You're No Metal Worker... you're an ArtistThis is what's left as of this evening. I am putting the lower back edge of the lip where it needs to be, and trimmed the excess above it. Note the green mark by the 3/8" wood block is now lined back up. I trimmed the excess above it. The 3 square bumped out pads on the outer wheel houses located front, rear, and top center are where padded clamps are put at the factory to hold the quarter skin in position tightly against the wheel house for welding. This is why I am making sure to keep these while reworking the wheel arch. So far so good. I think once it's got primer on it, nobody will ever know this has been moved, and the skin will fit like a glove in this area. After this its onto the front to fix another spot where it fits like dogshit.

Thank you for the kind words. If nothing else, this car has been a head scratcher for me. This is the farthest I have ever taken one of these cars apart. Kind of a what do I dissassemble and change first, second, 3rd, and so on. Theres been weeks on end where I would go in the shop, and study it like a chess master studying a chess board trying to figure what move needs to be next. Then I'd go inside, plot solutions in my head, sleep on it for a few nights, maybe go back outside, look it over again a week later before ever doing the next part. I would drive my wife nuts by tossing and turning in my sleep disassembling and reassembling it in my sleep so many different ways. The wheel arch problem was no different. Just had to figure out the easiest way to move it where it needed to be. That ended up being straight down in the center, and trim back both of the ends to fit.You're No Metal Worker... you're an Artist
