I have a 66 coupe that im getting estimates for new quarters (the whole thing, not skins). I have some skills at welding so that shouldnt be a problem... but im most worried that if i do it myself the fit will turn out like crap. Is it hard to remove the old quarters and get the new ones to fit so they look good? any avice is helpful. I hate hiring other people do do work!!

I have the same question, but for a fastback.

i'd suggest that if you have no bodywork or welding experience to let professionals do it.

you might save some money by removing the old quarters though and this can be done without damaging any part of the car other that the quarter panel itself. Takes a good cutting tool, a drill for spot welds and patience... oh, and a thick pair of gloves so you dont slice your hand open on raw steel!
