      I honestly didn't think that would be an issue. If it becomes an issue, I guess I could always ceramic coat the sections that run by the fuel tank

      Time to get back on this Charger. Doors are coming off first to rebuild the door hinges....

      Panels and gaps are getting dialed in starting with rebuilding the left door hinges first. Then a relief cut was made along the bottom of the quarter to pull the quarter in at the bottom. Once the door and lower quarter were set, the forward edge of the quarter was adjusted to create an even gap between the door and quarter.

      The left door had some rust in the corners...which has now been repaired. Also, the AMD rocker was a little too short; you can see it as you follow the door's leading edge gap down to the rocker. It's now been fixed.

      I may get some static on this post, but the marker lights have been deleted. The wheel lips were also trimmed.

      With a straight line like that, I couldn't resist.

      A cut was made along the bottom right quarter panel so the quarter panel could be pulled in match the door profile.

      Right door hinge was rebuilt and then the right door to quarter gap was set before welding the leading edge of the right quarter...

      A pie cut was used to straighten the upper line on the valance.


      A pie cut was also made on the quarter just forward of the corner. After...

      The quarter panel caps didn't fit very well, so the quarters were massaged to get a better fit.

      The decklid lip had some rust bubbles so a patch was made...






      Trunk floor braces were welded in

      I bought a new AMD rear bumper for this car....I've been a bit disappointed in it. The yellow tape to show you the profile of the edge, which wanders. It will be powdercoated satin black anyway, so the edge was shaved so it would be straight/parallel with the taillight panel. Compare the gaps between the bumper and taillight panel and you will see the difference

      Since the wheel tubs were widened and the trunk lid supports were moved, it took a bit of work to align the decklid.
