Taking apart previous owner ‘s “great bodywork “
Can a car quarter work on an SD?

    In response to Gguerra

WOW. That is NUTS! They could have spent a few more hours on those repair panels and fitted them properly. Check with the guys at EMS Auto. They have a string at the top of the landing page for the main 49-54 forum, I think. Not sure if their panels will be tall enough to reach the original metal on your quarter but it'd be worth a shot to talk to them.

I hope that the rest of the car holds less surprises for you. Just don't get discouraged. Fixing these things is like eating an elephant - take one little bite at a time, and just keep on chewing......
