    Thanks Mantaray, I have a jogger like that already, didn't want to start bending the panel and ruining it if it wasn't suppose to have the lip on it, I'll go play now👍
  9. I'm working down the side of my manta a project, so far I've replaced front inner wing section, battery tray and repaired b post bottom, I've removed the sill and carried out repairs, ive had a delivery of panels from dr manta including rear lower quarters, my question is, does the lower quarter panel have a 1/2" lip to spot weld to the inner panel or is there not supposed to be a lip there, my car has what appears to be a spot welded lip but the repair panels just curve round as if there's no lip, can someone post up a picture looking up at the rear quarter panel to boot floor or to rear valance join please, thank you
