69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

I didn't know if I should have posted this on this forum or in the body shop. I have been building this car about the same time Todd started his 69. The only thing that slows me down is that I went back to school after 16 years to become a smrt Enguneer. .

My question is on the section where the quarters meet behind the rear window, The quarter panels go under that panel right? I would just have to do some light hammering and mending to get it to line up.

I attached some pics

Thanks in advance!

PS: See Todd! I don't just roam around the forums without working on my car.
and look some actual welds too.

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Roger! Glad you finally started your own build thread so we can follow along WITH PICS!
You have the rear (filler) tulip panel positioned correctly--yes. It gets placed on top of the quarters as you have it. You will most likely have to do some minor trimming, filing and/or reshaping on the filler panel ends to make it sit cleanly and tight with the quarters. I had to on both cars I'm building. Call it "par" for the "repro" course.

I used locking pliers on those seams from inside the trunk, and a ratchet tie strapped around the entire rear end of the car (from side to side) pulling the quarters towards each other to get it as tight as possible there too. Every little bit helps and acts as extra hands for this...

Looking great! Very happy for ya...

Thanks Todd!

Yeah I learned early on that those ratcheting straps can be your best friend especially when your working on the car buy yourself.

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Just another option I used I welded tabs to the quarters in the corners by the weatherstrip channel on each side with a hole for a ratchet strap and sucked the quarters together worked great and no chance of crushing the outer skin with the straps when done break the welds on the tabs and grind down the tack welds easy spot to clean up and no one will see it

I like this idea better. Of course, it will only help pull them in at the tops of the panels, not near the drop offs and tail light panel. But definitely a great technique for the rear (filler) tulip panel seams.

I think this is a good idea as well.

I was looking at the rear of the car extensively last night and was not shocked to find that how many times I would be removing and placing, removing and placing and grinding and cutting and placing and removing....... You pros get the idea. in order to line up the rear section of the car. I am going to try and get to work on it today. I want to finish welding the passengers side frame rails in and also the passenger side mini tub. I have already welded the frame rails in the trunk, just need to weld them around the wheel tub area and in side the car. Then the mini tub. Once that is finished I will focus on aligning the quarters and rear of the car sheet metal.

I was trying to wait to the end and align everything like I originally planned but I have come to realize its pointless to do that. So, I align as close as I can get just to make sure I am on the right path and work from there.

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Haha! I remember that episode... classic. Glad to see you back at it! Remember to keep your metal as clean as can be around your plugs. I use a 180 grit / 2" roloc to clean away the edp around the plug weld holes I punch. Keep it up!

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

and you really only need weld-thru primer where to panels meet at the seam. Not necessary to coat plug welds on an exposed surface. Just roloc wire wheel, or hand sand them clean later on right before coating them in epoxy.

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Yeah thanks. I ve keeping my welds clean with the 180 like you mention. Whn i cqnt get it with the 180 ill use the wire wheel as well. The red primer you see is the weld thru primer im using between the metals. Did not realize it was red until i sprayed it.

I will go back and get any bare metal with a wire wheel before I epoxy primer it.

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Good deal... Yea-- weld-thru primer has terrible adhesion --especially under epoxy. Not good to do... You're making some nice progress! I need to jump in now! (been restoring several sets of GM A-body power door locks today (wire harness work, etc)... my hands are killing me!)

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Hey Tood,

Here some pics of what we were talking about. I think that they are pretty straight on. Oh and yes I did weld the in already.

In the pics with me pointing and showing the SFH (BFH mini me), I just have to tap it in a little so that the quarter will slide in and meet edge to edge on the lip of the wheel housing. I hope I am explaining this part right.

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Yes... those flanges look like they will have to be messaged upward and more level to mate with the quarters. You figured it right... nice work Rooger. (you spelled my name Tood) oh and.... I wish I tubbed my '69.... Grrrrr.....

Re: 69 rustbucket turning to 69 Camaro.

Haha.... yep-- this new 10 min or less "edit window" will getcha every time. Glad to see you back at it. Maybe if you get some free time, you can head up here for a day and kick me into gear. Can't seem to escape the norm yet... I'm using the '68 as a parts hanger rack now.
