bending the outside to make it stronger so it can support the fibreglass outer wheel arch in the future.
The lengts i have measured when i test fittet the rear quarters

Cutting it into shape so the fibreglass rear quarter fits over it:

Spray some anti rust protection on and seal the welding spots so there will be no surprises inb the future

grind down paint to have a surface for the body sealant. The surface adhesion is better on the blank metal.

Applying the body sealant to the panel and the body

Now i applied the panel to the body and secured it with screws. After a while i startet to replace the screws with rivets where they stay permanent
