My "fabricator" seemed to have a problem putting this area of my car back together as well. I was able to go back in and fix a small issue, but like yours, he was about 1 inch off with the drop-off. This resulted in the rear lower fenders being 1 inch wider to which he centered the tail light panel. The only way I saw to fix that was to tear the driver's rear end apart, possibly replacing parts and re-welding it. I opted to work with what was there and now, you cant see it.It looks like the genius that worked on my car put the whole left side trunk piece a half inch too far up, but I’m going to fix it the best way I can. I’m still working .Hope you guys don’t think I’m a hack I just moved the drop off instead of replacing the brace and trunk section
Thanks for looking in. The biggest issue with CJPP is how slow the order comes and some stuff is on back order but with the rate I’m moving it hasn’t hurt me that much. The metal seems to be good but I had aftermarket panels kind of Frankensteined in anyway so it’s hard to tell. I haven’t had a quality issue yet, and sometimes they send me the dynacorn even when I order the cheap stuff. Customer service is better reached through email than phone. If you are not impatient, the sale prices, reward points, and free shipping are worth the frustration when you are on a budget with so much work to do like I am.The work looks good so far. It is also good to hear you seem to be having a good experience with CJPP. I have bought a lot of parts from them over the last 3 years. However the negative experiences some have had makes me look for alternatives first.
On the quarter panels, was the metal the same thickness as the original or thinner? I may be looking for replacement front fenders and possibly a hood down the road.
Nice, I have to do B Pillars on mine as well. unfortunately it seems everyone is back ordered on them til MarchInstalled the Monte Carlo bar while jacking on the engine crossmember to spread the shock towers so I could mock the car up to go towards the lining up the new b pillar and quarter panel.
I think you and I were in the same situation with the way the quarters were cut if CJ pony parts hadn’t had such a good sale I would’ve been not sure what to doI went with the quarter panel skins and really regret it. You are doing the right thing by using full quarters!
Wow the B pillarswere available but they were waiting to ship the rockers that’s what held me up but CJ shipped the quarters and the the pillars earlier after I complained. The rockers just came - two months laterNice, I have to do B Pillars on mine as well. unfortunately it seems everyone is back ordered on them til March
