Trunk Rehab
I agree, so that's how we'll do it. And now, I can pop the new quarters on without having to wonder if the tail light panel and corners are going to be moving around on me.

Got the tail light panel DONE today! Everything went well... a little 'too' well, it seems. Had me scratchin' my head for a little while wondering what I did wrong - but I can't find anything wrong... so BONUS!

Here's the corner patch after 'blasting and getting it all welded in. Fits like a glove!

Then, after lots of measuring, and even using a bottle jack and 4x4 underneath the weatherstripping channel to boost up the left side about 1/4", it's all in.

After getting the trunk lid put back on and lined up, I used it to help line up the panel (as Scott advised) - which helped immensely. Also cleaned off the yellow grease pencil from the junkyard and decided to make it a 'Mach 1' again - Sharpies Rule!

And finally, popped the quarter extensions on and lined everything up. I'm not saying it's perfect, but I think I can be really happy with how it came out (with proper alignment of the extensions and everything once the new quarters are on, that is).

Now, it's just a matter of getting the new wheel houses in, so I can change out the quarters. Hopefully, I can get them here by next weekend. If not, I still got bumper brackets, the latch, and the gas tank forward strap bracket to get done.

It's all starting to come together. It's weird... but 'good' weird.
