    Hi,

    I'm getting close to welding my qtr skins in, but the bottom corner isn't formed as original and overlaps the tail panel by about 4 inches. I know this is wrong and it requires trimming to fit, but I have no idea how the original panels fitted in this area.

    I'm looking at the lower, rearmost corners, where the qtr, tail panel and trunk drop offs link.

    Can anyone post up some good pictures that show how the panels fit together here?

    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks for the pics, but I'm struggling to work out what panels I'm looking at. I think some of that might be because yours is an earlier model than mine.
    Can you take pictures from the outside, looking slightly upwards at the corner? I'd like to be able to trace where the quarter runs as it comes down and tucks under the tail panel.
