1/4 Panels
« on: March 21, 2012, 07:09:50 AM »

I'm slowly making plans for paint..

Personally I hate the removable cover over the wheels.. They never line up right and are a pain.

What I was thinking.. maybe I could graft on a wheel lip from a more common 1/4 that would eliminate the wheel skirts ( or whatever they are called). Basically replace the area around the wheel ( like the common truck bed side rust repair )

Any suggestion on a model to get something from? I do like the rear quarters from a 65 Sport Fury but those panels are not very common.

Is there anything I can do for the trunk extension from the trunk pan to the bottom of the 1/4? Could another model ( like a B body) part be made to worK.

Since the Fury was a C body, other C bodies should work, otherwise, isn't it a pretty simple piece to flat bend it to shape?

I think all the C's had different shape wheel cutouts, so fender skirts would not likely interchange. And how CHrysler had that big horizontal ridge that Fury didn't,  Dodge had round cutouts, Chrysler more square, things like that.

I think he was looking for the inner fenderwell extension on the inside, which is more of a flat piece with a fender curve on the bottom to the rear top corner. That should be similar on the inside. As far as wheel wells, to change the shape of that, there are a lot of different wheel well repair sheetmetal out there to match up with a little manipulating. That would be below any crease that isn't low down on the body.
