Ive seen a lot of people filling the rear panel to rear lower quarter gap. People who have done this, are you just mudding it? patching in metal? Im curious...it looks a lot more smooth with it filled. Ive got mine pretty close....but im curious hom much more work it would be to smooth it out.

I brazed mine on my 70 L78 car.

Is it still a barn find when you were the one that parked it in the barn?

On my pro-street car I completely eliminated it with a welded plate and on my 73 i made it a perfect seam by extending both sides in with metal than seamsealing it. Definitely made my 73 to nice cause they were pretty bad from the factory, don’t waste your time muddling it, it will definitely crack.

Don't mud them. Mine are seam sealed too. SEM 1K urethane seam sealer. There was no seam sealer in mine when I got it, and they looked terrible. I painted it

years ago, and they still look the same.
