If you check silvers post he has made 12 post in last week or since I made my comment 1 week ago. 2 of those post in the Paint/Body category so I'd have to disagree with that assessment or accusation. He's seen it, It just brings up bad memmories.  shruggy

Well some more pics as I've promised. All the haters were saying otherwise but I got it done. I sure don't have much time to work on it as I have full time job w/ over time and owning a house makes a lot of work that needs to be done around it.
And yes I did use patch panel for the top and then spliced 1/4 panel skin to that, unlike some members were saying was (impossible, bad idea, etc etc)

They weren't available yet when I started and at ~1K for a quarter panel I couldn't afford it anyways. Besides factory patch piece fit like a glove

Hey Silver,

I regret the abuse you've been taking here. When a thread digresses to the point of name calling we've lowered ourselves to the level of other boards. With that said, I agree with 71green go's comment. On this board we all enjoy the benefit of professional mechanics, autobody men, upholsterers and electricians. I've restored a couple cars and our 69 will probably be the last.......just getting too old and its an expensive pursuit but I appreciate the methods used and the lessons learned here. Our professional automotive members do indeed know the best, easiest and fastest way to make a correct lasting repair/replacement. A great many, like me, rely on the expertise of these folks in the restoration process and our knowledge base thereof. True, I would not have proceeded the way you did but WTF its your car AND you are learning as you go. Thumbs up to you!
The fact is you are getting it done the best way you can with the funds and time available to you. It will take you longer to finish that entire quarter panel area because of how you began the cancer removal but you'll make it happen. Your last picture post shows the results of your determination. I've made plenty of mistakes with my car and its cost me more time and money to make it right...............its all part and parcel of this hobby we love. I've also enjoyed some great results as a direct benefit of the experience and knowledge of the more skilled members.
Silver, bottom line is it doesn't matter how you get there........just get there and you are! Cheers

Tom

Looking good Silver!  2thumbs I remember when I got my quarters in primer I was thrilled. Mine wasn't real rusty (I did have to put a couple of small patches in), but mine where beat up....lots of dent pulling and dolly hammering. I was sure glad to get those things in primer. Blocking those big things ain't no walk in the park either, lol.

Keep it up,
Jason

Looks like you getting it smoothed out nice. Are you going for the filled seams on the the valance corners? Or do you need you clear the filler out of there still?

Yes I filled that gap and blended body line into the corner. I think it looks much better imo. Some guys actually get rid of seam between rear valance and corners as well but I think I'll leave the way it is.
