So after closer look at the quarter panels and getting quotes on the filler work I decided it would be better for me to just buy new quarters. Plus filler will never be perfect.
So today the new quarters from Vauxhall came!




That will be the job for next week or two a long with the new roof

Same with my nova, I didn't go as far as getting it shot blasted but I replaced both rear arches and I'm striping all of the underseal off curing any rust and re undersealing so I know it's solid underneath do it properly once and it won't need doing again.

Whats actually up with the orig 1/4s? as those new ones will need filler too.

All work looks good, a proper rebuild.
