    I know this has been covered but I can't find it. Looking for a lot of detail pics of quarter panel replacement. I've seen slo five oh's build thread but I was looking for any others. Got a 94 cobra that was side swiped and I'll be replacing the panel soon. I have a donor panel already. Thanks

    You're gonna need a sport-weld drill and already a decent amount of auto body skill. That's not a small job, there's alignment issues like crazy and any secondary damage not seen from the outside will also affect this.

    Basically what I'm saying is - If you need a how-to thread for this then you're not ready to do it. Well... not the right way, at least.

    Gotcha. Well you'll need a spot-weld drill, a welder, seam caulk, weld-thru primer, that's about it. The 1/4s on these cars are pretty simple compared to the newer vehicles that have the roof rail and 1/4 as one.

    So would it be easier to cut behind the sail panel like 2slo95fiveoh did?
