Good to see another wide wagon in progress, every one I've seen has been done slightly differently. How did you go about widening your inner arches as haven't seen any photos showing it?

Here is a couple of pictures of mine that I done a couple of years back.

I know your struggle! I crashed the rear passenger side quarter at the track. Putting that new whole quarter piece in was such a pain!! Keep up the great work. Subscribing.

That is where we removed about 1/8" of material in a wedge shape to get the panels to lay down properly. No matter what we did trying to get the panels to lay down flush, it wouldn't work. There was a bulge that I refused to tolerate that would have resulted in way too much body filler on either side of the top or bottom to get the lines back there to work out. The solution was to cut tiny wedges out of the panel where you see the weld to get it all to come back in line. The result is the difference between 1/8" of filler or (now) nearly none...

If will all make sense when you see it out of paint which should be in the next couple weeks.

Progress is finally happening again....

Default Back from Paint-FINALLY

Ok so after 7 months of having my car sit at my body and paint guys house/shop, I couldn't take it anymore so I started to bug the crap out of him on basically a daily basis until he got off his ass and started working on my car. This is the same guy that did the paint and bodywork on my widebody coupe, so I expected top notch work, and for the most part, he did not disappoint, however, I think the honeymoon is over between he and I, and this will probably be the last car I let him paint. There are several small things that he overlooked, and if I want to, I can bring the car back to him to have them fixed, but at this point, I am going to continue with the build, and work those details out later, as I am sure that I will nick and scratch a few things along the way, so might as well leave it all until the car is up and running, then send it in for one last touch up.

Anyway, now that the car is one solid color again, it is clear that the attention to detail on the bumper, and the quarter panels paid off in a big way. The lines are all absolutely perfect. The wheel arches are pretty much perfect. Everything lines up and it is almost, if not impossible to tell that the car did not come this way from the factory. If you had no idea that the wagons were not flared like the sedans, you would think this was a factory job.

I am not easy to impress when it comes to car stuff, and at this point, I am definitely pleased with the outcome.

Here are a few teaser pics for your viewing pleasure....

Subscribed. This thing is coming out great, looking forward to your progress!

Just recently put sedan fenders on my wagon, and I'm so itching to do the whole thing haha.
