69 Body Panels
Hello everyone. Am new to TC and have my first of many questions. What is the typical order of body panel replacement on a 69? I will be installing full quarters, outer wheelhouses, fill panel, tail pan, fenders, hood, and doors.
I plan on keeping the original front end and doors on until I get the quarters done for alignment purposes. Would I install one quarter at a time or both at the same time? What order would the tail pan be installed?
I have replaced many Chevelle full quarters but never had to replace a taipan so the order or replacement is unknown to me.
Also, I am replacing floor pans. What is the brace that comes down underneath the middle of the toe board and is it available aftermarket? Mine is rusty and needs replaced due to the bad floor pan. I have looked at catalogs, old posts, and books and cannot find what it is or looks like.
