I posted this in the body shop section but thought it might be better to post it here as well.
Ok, so here is the background. I installed new quarters on my Cuda and thought I have made sure everything was in the right place before I welded them in. The passenger side door has some damage on the bottom rear corner of the door, and I "assumed" that it would all line up when all of it is was in. Short story here is that it appears that I did not get the passenger side quarter in far enough and now I have a 1/4" height problem between the door and quarter. After a lot of inspecting and comparing, I am positive that the lower quarter behind the door has to come in. So my question is if anyone has any pearls of wisdom how to correct it outside of drilling out all of the spot welds? To that point, it was all clamped in before I welded it, so this makes me think there are some other issues here that are going to require some cutting and moving metal (which isn't an issue). This is not a restoration, but I also do not want a 1/4" height off set between them because it is very noticeable. I thought about cutting the edges and pulling the panel in, but on the bottom where it makes the bend into the door frame seems a little tricky. I am not afraid of cutting and welding, I just don't want to make it worse or get it to where I am whacking out the bottom of a new quarter. The upside is that the rest of the door lines up pretty well.
thanks in advance for any tips or advice. Lacking any feed back, I will start cutting and figure it out.
