Quarter panel install and wheel well stretch

Thought I would post some pics of the quarter skin install and wheel well stretch. Once they are welded I will stretch them 6 inches or so.

Re: Quarter panel install and wheel well stretch

This would be a simular stretch on a 67 or 8 Camaro.Looks very nice good looking work did you make the fill in peices or are they from another quarter..What size Tire is it going to have to need a 6" stretch.I have never stretched a 7or 8 but heard they were a pain.Not to jump your thread but to add to it,heres a pic of the stretch on my 69.I like to see the threads in PS keep us posted on the build Brian...

Yes very rare.

The Stang I am stretching is similar to how I would do a 67-68 Camaro.
