Well that kind of blows Curt, but hey shit happens, fortunately your car is black, so a repaint of the roof should match well, FWIW I would avoid trying to blend a paint line at the C pillar, instead I would backtape along the top of the rear qtr's top edge, and hard tape the stripe edge, and tape off the front black painted portion of the decklid in front of the stripe, then reshoot the roof/plug/dutchman area along with the tops of the qtrs, then the only "line blending" would be the soft backtaped edge on the qtrs top line, actually you could blend it by hand polishing, just a thought...

I would repaint the area inside the pink line

Then you'd only have to blend in this backtaped soft edge on the qtrs hard edge body line, much easier than achieving a blend at the C pillars

That is the plan at this time, But I will extend it to the base of the A-pillars as I removed all the seam sealer and I'll also be removing the quarter stripes as one is not centered(not by my hand) this way I can go down the hole top edge the quarter as you stated.

Thanks for the insight  2thumbs

Good day folks,

 After getting the roof skin installed, I though that I'd better check to make sure the rear glass still fits, and accurse not. The window was to tight, so I decided to cut out the upper half and start over. This time I fitted all the pieces and now everything fits, with the exception of the trim which is a little tight, but I have a fix in the works... Thanks to moparchris!!

Looks good Curt, did you use the AMD rear window trim, or modify stock 68-70 pcs?

 Thank you sir,
 I used the AMD trim set, It was a little tight at the along the lower corners so I made a relief cut and tapped them out a bit.

Curt,you are making great progress considering that you had to redo the roof and part of the window plug after the car was painted!  I'm sure that it was a tough decision to dig back into it,but the longevity you will gain by doing this will definitely pay off. I  bought this Daytona stock car clone that I  am building, and I have been undoing the hack job that was done to the body, by someone who was trying to turn it into a Fast and Furious Daytona wannabe. They butchered the hood, doors, fenders and the rear window plug.  The plug was a very nice piece made by Mike at Dayclona, but a previous owner hacked it trying to make the glass flush.  They distorted it badly, and it will have to be replaced.  At least the car was not painted yet. I have a friend that is going to make a new window plug for it. The shop that built my car did amazing work, but one of the owners hacked the body badly.  I am sure that it was a tough decision to redo the roof of your car,but it looks great,and you will always be glad that you did what had to be done.

Seems like these old cars require the 'two steps forward...one step backward' philosophy in order to get them done correctly with the parts available today. Great job on the repair!  2thumbs

.nice.....but I think I would want the drums and wing to match or be very different colours to each other ....especially where they are red and orange. To the unknowing onlooker they are going to think it just a paint mismatch!! Im just too anal I guess!!

 It wasn't to hard of a decision, just had to make it right. My car was a vinyl top car and if I had a half a brain I should have replaced the roof skin then. But as they say hindsight is 20/20.

Good day folks,

 Well, I competed the buffing and now I'm going to let it set for a awhile so it can finish gassing off. I think it turned out okay being this is my first time doing paint and body. If I haven't said it before, I will say now, I have a new found respect for the guys that do this for a living cheers
Enjoy.
