Sorry, I didn't even see you question , I was looking at your pics.
Thanks for the compliment.

Your stretch looks good.

The fill in peices are from the old quarter skin.
Not sure on the tire size. I will check tomorrow.

They are big though.

Those slicks should have no problem with traction!! Post more pics when you can, I always enjoy seeing them, Pro Street or dedicated strip cars either one. As always Brian, very impressive work.

Re: Quarter panel install and wheel well stretch

So, what's the difference between a stretch and a flare?

A stretch is when you enlarge the wheel opening front to back for a taller tire.

A flare would be to add width to the quarter for a wider tire.

Re: Quarter panel install and wheel well stretch

I have never done a 68 before but I did the 69 that I own. I did it like Dave did above.

The problem with a 67/68 is the opening is round so if you stretched it,, there would be a flat piece ( like the 69 ) across the middle which to me would look funny.

I like the way that Brian ( speedfreak ) did the mustang quarter panel stretch. It is just like a 67/68 camaro quarter panel. He made it look like one big half circle. Very nice indeed.

Harwood does make the fiberglass panels that are glued onto the existing quarterpanel to make a bigger opening. Dont know how long it would last before the fiberglass cracked. I would rather have all metal.
