    My Son Mike's 69 Mach 1 Restoration

    Mike and I got the trunk and quarter extensions mounted to verify fit of all parts in back. Getting close to being ready to final weld back together!

    Got the completely rebuilt motor ready on the stand. Will sit for a while until car is ready.

    Quarter Window Drip Edge

    Anyone have a scrap donor I could buy this piece from?
  5. I am replacing my sons quarter panel and damaged the sheet metal piece that contains the drip edge around the quarter window. Did not realize that was a separate piece until after taking 1st quarter out. I successfully salvaged the other side. I need the passenger side piece to weld back in. Don’t know where to get it. Any help is appreciated. I attached pic of driver side piece for reference.

    We have successfully removed the first quarter panel. After a good sandblasting session, the old rusty metal is coming back to life.

    Mike and I got the rear quarter extensions, rear tail light panel, and inner fender well fitted.

    If you are replacing rockers definitely need to support the car even further as it will sag in my opinion. Also if I had it to do over, I would not put braces thru the gas tank hole as it would have been handy to be able to put the gas tank in while aligning the rear trunk area panels. I had to build a template instead. Just FYI.

    See attached pics of support frame I built so I could replace rear frame rails and components in the back of car. Hope these help

    Nice looking project. The 2 cars I have worked on were much worse than yours so you should have no problem with it. I do recommend building an extra support frame as I did if you plan on putting it on a rotisserie and cutting rear trunk pans etc. out of it. The rear frame rails will move around without additional support. I will post pics of my frame. As you will see i cut holes in my quarters as they were garbage anyway, to help support the car. I will post pics when I return from vacation.

    How are you supporting the car during replacement of rusted parts? Body cart? Rotisserie? Maybe on its own wheels?

    I built the bracing because I had to completely replace the rear frame rails which happen to be the connection point for the rotisserie. However I will take more pics and post. I am on vacation until next weekend so it will be week after next before I can get pics.

    Growing up fast. Mike thought he was funny taking that pic of me and said “don’t feed the caged animals!”

    I appreciate that. Don’t think I would want to do this all the time for a living. When hobbies become work then all the fun goes away!
