Rear Quarters Installation Advice

I ordered my outer wheel wells/full quarters from AMD. I’d appreciate your tips/tricks to help this go as good as possible.

My car doesn’t have the front clip or subframe currently on. My doors are on and when it was together, everything lined up real well. Also, my rear end is out and the car is currently supported by stands in the front mounting points/rear frame rails.

Question:

I’ve heard people say the car should be on it’s own suspension/weight while swapping rear quarters. Do you see any issues with me doing this swap how my car is currently supported? If so, what is the “correct” way? I’m a bit confused because I see people doing this with the car on a jig, rotisserie, on the ground, etc.

Anyhow, I’d appreciate some input/advice.

Cheers from Colorado…
