Quarter Panel Replacement (pics)

After backing out of a parking space last year at college and getting driven into buy some girl I spent all last winter replacing my drives side quarter panel and fixing other damage as a result of getting hit. So if anyone ever has any auto body questions seeing how thatís what I go to school for fell free to drop me a line and I will get back to you.

The Damage





The drilling out count less spot welds to remove the quarter panel





The new $600 quarter panel from the dealership mounted and body work done





The Car in the paint booth with sealer on it



Brand new coat of base and clear





All done

But guess whose fault it was?

Thatís right mine! Because I backed out in front of her! Dose anyone see that giant truck that was parked next to me how could of I have seen her. Its not like I floored it in reverse and pulled right out.

Sucks that there was an accident, but I love seeing different stages of bodywork. Its something that I've always wanted to try, and even bought a car to try to learn on, but never did it. Someday.

looks good. Its amazing what a good body man can do.

I may have some questions for you, involving painting sideskirts and a bumper.

hell maybe if you can give me enough advice I can respray my hood.

the questions I have involve the prep work and all that jazz. Also since the side skirts are plastic, I guess I need some sort of flex agent.

man...I always hated drilling spots from my body shop days. Bed sides for trucks really blow, and 1/4s are right up there too.
