By the end of the day yesterday I had cut the rear quarters, sealed them up, sanded down the doors, and started molding the Mines spoiler.. tons of work in perfect weather couldn't have asked for a better day.



A little tip for anyone who comes across this thread in the future looking for advice or tips on cutting your rear quarters. If you use a thick cutting wheel, it leaves you with more surface metal to weld/seal. Also, if you have a large metal mallet, you can shape the inside of the rear quarters, instead of cut multiple fins on the inner quarter panel to push out. Ends up saving a lot of time, and significantly reduces the amount of material you actually need to cut.



The only thing left to do in the rear, besides sand the molded Mines setup, is figure out how much further to push out the rear bumper tabs.
