Does anyone have a good place to buy rear quarter replacements. My passenger side is gone and the drivers is not too far behind. Want to get them fixed this summer. Just trying to find some. Thanks for your help guys.

Just extend the chrome down to the bottom? Or call the expert, http://badass-of-ne.forumotion.com/t645-rotted-rear-quarter-fix-part-2?highlight=Quarter+panel

It looks like it could be a good answer to your problem. That seller has been a round for a long time and is pretty well respected.

Those fiberglass ones suck. Find some good metal ones.

I'll be using those on Matts car as soon as I'm able (already have them)
Dont have any experience but fiberglass to metal WILL be tougher then metal to metal

I don't see how fiberglass bonded to metal can be any good, I'd think a good patch welded in and treated/coated with a paint impervious to rust (that GM never used there) would be better?

1st off, fiberglass bonded to metal can be stronger then the original metal
2nd fiberglass doesnt rust.
3rd, good luck finding replacement 1/4's
4th, that is one nasty area to replace & reweld (properly) THEN the process starts again.
Fiberglass is prone to pitting etc, but is a whole lot easy to work.
I'll let you know how to do it right....once I get there

Good luck getting the bond right, it's not easy. All the info I read on them said they chip and crack often. Put a layer of Kevlar over the very lower half, might help the chipping and cracking.
Maybe it will work, someone over on issf said they didn't look rite either. Idk I'll be interested to see the finished product.

Determining a bond line & clamping method is whats holding me up right now.
I know what product is recommended, but I've no body shop experience.
Chipping & cracking certainly IS a possibility (like a corvette?) but that wont stop me.
These are pretty much finished panels so I dont understand the Kevlar layer?
ISSF comments never stopped me in the past, I think "doesnt look right" indicates improper installation. I have an advantage here, I'm really not picky. I have nothing but a skeleton of a 1/4 panel on both sides.
Where to cut to get the best bonding & clamping is what I'll be figuring out until my arm is ready to do some work.

Just spray some chip guard on it and that should solve that.

I'd also like to see how they come out. I dunno, I thought that patch Billy made for his SS that time looked pretty nice, I'd just rather have that done by a body shop then paint it inside and out with something potent to keep the rot from starting again. Easy for me to say as I've never used an english wheel or anything to make patch panels. Laughing
