boy,was it HOT today!!! 104 outside today i started repairs on the pass side 1/4 panel. the door never closed right,would rattle on rough roads. also there was a small gap between the door glass and weather stripping. when i bought it,i figured the door was just mis-aligned. when i finally found out how bad it really was,i had already paid it off so after i was involved in an accident a few months ago,i decided to fix the passanger side. i did a pretty good job on the driver side,i have all the tools i need,and all week to do it til i go back to work. about a month ago,i picked up a replacement panel for $50 here are some pics of what i got done today. rear view,can you see how thick the bondo is? 1/4 panel looks alittle wide,dont it? tail light removed for the bumper,remove the 10,7/16 nuts from inside the trunk and all the plastic push pins under the car bumper off,also removed the deck lid time to take the roof molding off. pull off the weather stripping, remove the 6(?) torx screws pull metal rail off, remove the 3 philips screws, dont forget the 8mm bolt, pull up at the front,but dont remove from car yet, where the two panels meet,wiggle down,then away from the car,note the clip attaching the two panels togeather from inside car,remove the 4,7/16 nuts holding the sail panel on, also removed the 4,8mm nuts attaching the 1/4 window. you can also see the extent of the damage to that side. check out how thick the bondo is removed the trunk hinge, from inside trunk,remove two 7/16 nuts, and dig it out of the sealer. cleaned it up to expose the spot welds,then center punched the welds before drilling them out. drilled out all the welds,panel loose. marked my spot and cut the top out,left it alittle long,i'll trim it to fit the replacement panel. next,drill out the 5-6 spot welds at the bottom. look at the s**t job some one did! and heres what the bondo was covering, i'll post up more pics as i go along.
