When we bought the car, we had no idea it was anywhere near this condition, if that's what you're asking. This was just the initial cut of the quarter panel then we found the outer wheelhouse was bad, so that's where we stopped for the day, gotta figure out how to patch the outer wheelhouse then get the rest of the quarter panel cut out, basically frustration set in...

I wound up using two old Mustang II fenders. I split each opening in half and fabricated the hell out of them. There was a lot of on again off again with the quarters. Not a perfect solution but it worked.
