Re: Rear Quater Panel Replacment !! Anyone done it

my plan was.. to just use a anger grinder and cut the old panel off.. leaving the panel where spot weld was and then just grind it down on the car so its not got old panel there and just do the same to the new panel.. and then where the old one comes up to just lign the new one up that I got and then just tack it on..

I have taken a pic of the damage..

I have been told it called be pulled or fillered as the panel flexs and is not rigid enough to the to hold as the first light bump to it.. it would fall off.. and the line cant be kept and 3 body shops I took it to said it needs a new quarter panel..
