Aug 11, 2006 after months of sitting and me constantly working, I decided to continue on with the work. Never satisfied and with subtle changes to the Sorcery quarter panel. The panels had a lot of imperfections so tackling the rear was the first part as I hired a body shop owner to work on the rear end to make it fit perfect. With my asistance and sponge like mind I wanted to get the process done with my hands on and his guidance.
To make a change to the quarters I added a flare to them utilizing old school techniques and the original quarter panels for the outer mold. The panels did not come with a inner lip to have fender liners attach too. I used fiberglass mating and maguires quick release mold on top of the tape I used to cover the portions I needed to graft the fabricated piece.
The fitment of the quarter panels needed some work. Alignment and adjustment were done by sectioning the areas and then fiberglass matte layed inside the quarter panel (pic not shown). Taking on and off the panel many times can get annoying.
After grafting the flare on, I thin layer of fiberglass resin coated the outside lower half of the panel to get the high and low spots to a minimal after the initial DA sanding.
The inner crown lip for later custom fender liners.
The inner door jam fitment had also been worked. This is abut 5 hrs of work, mainly waiting for the fiberglass to cure. 100 degree Texas weather helped but not for outdoor work. =(
2 days and one quarter panel 25% done.
