  2. A series rear quarter panel fit

    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👍
  3. 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

Has any one removed the chrome trim from around the door opening, specifically the one bonded to the A post, I've had the side glass out, rubber seal off, removed all the screws and the trims however the last one is also bonded to the A post and I don't want to bend or kink it, any suggestions?
