Re: Rear Quater Panel Replacment !! Anyone done it

Can it not be pressed out from the inside, enough that it wont pop back in.
Then fill,.
The part of the edge, could you take the striker plate off, (you will need to remove p/s rear window, panel which ever way you go on the repair).
With all the doings out of the quarter panel, piece of wood pushed in, with a rope threaded around, through the striker hole, piece of wood down the door part , wider enough, that when you twist the rope with your trolley jack bar, it will pull the corner back out...

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
