what was the determining factor on where you made your quarter panel splice? was the splice butt welded? or a flanged splice? also how did you handle the splice of the "B" pillar into the roof? if you have more pictures ,could you post them? ...thanks!

splicing

We hung the door to determine placement for quarter. The b pillar is spot welded so we drilled it and replaced it with the sedan section. Quarter was but welded. These are the only pics I have as my other computer crashed and found these on my photo bucket account.

job

Thanks this is why the car is my favorite by far. It was the cleanest 4 dr I had ever seen. The only reason I cut it up as it was hit in the drivers side doors and light quarter damage on the same side. Got to love cars from Cali

I'm so glad I got to Lucille before you got your hands on her.

That came out really good, nice job! When I first saw the other thread title with this in it, I was expecting to see a six foot long door that opened from the back!

Awesome Job!

The car looks killer with the Flat Black paint and the Grey wheels.......
Who makes the wheels? What is the size front and back? Looks great!

Thanks for posting the pics and telling how it was done.

Some may disagree, but I even like the trim at the base of the sail panel.

How many cans in a case of Krylon? :) Looks like flat black.

Looks good. I've been debating on doing the same to a rusty 57 Bel Air I have. Now I have "some" confidence that it can be done. I was worried about it looking like a frankenstein, but your car looks great. Ok, time to get out the sawzall!

Very nice! :yes:

Do you use the doors from a normal 2 door or do you just keep the same doors and modify those. Man I like it!
