 Here's how I found my dutchman panel when I removed it.
Looks like the original was cut down the center, and another piece off of a different Challenger was welded over it.
Before I stared grinding down all the bondo years ago that filled the top of it, I swear it was an inch thick.
Funny thing is I never knew for over ten years  :bricks1:  :dupe:
 I'm sure a lot of us were there at one time though, including myself.
I remember "fixing" the quarter panel on my very first car, (72 Challenger) with screen, cardboard, and bondo  :-[
Being 16 back then is my excuse  :biggrin:
Live and learn  :thumbsup:

Here are some pics of a '74 'CUDA I have.  It was just covered in bondo but the price was right. Floors cowl and longitudinals are pretty nice believe it or not..
It would make a good project with all the parts available these days.
The 318 3 speed is still in it and it's an original KY5 Yellow blaze car.  The Yellow peeks out from under the red here and there.

I drove it for a while back in the day but now it needs restoration

I found several things that were not exactly fixed the way I would do it on my Challenger.

One is an exhaust system that had been pieced together with different size pipes, different materials, and dozens of welds everywhere.

The other was a trunk floor covered in fiberglass with various pieces of metal used as a backing, including a Texas license plate. Gotta love it.

Those are pretty good, but I think this is right up there in that league.  Found this once I ripped up the carpet and poked around underneath.  Ignore the ricer crap on the pedals...this was the driver side floor pan and trans tunnel material.
