4) The first cut


The first major surgery was getting the rear quarter panels off. It all started by cutting the rear end right off. While doing this major extraction I learned that you can't get entire panels off all at once without a lot of trouble, so the best way is to just chip away.


This is the right side rear quarter panel. Although it's not German, it's a very well made piece! It was made by VW of Mexico. I got both rears and both fronts from Rocky Mountain Motorworks. (now called Mid America Motorworks) I figured that I would install the quarters each as an entire piece. I fiddled with the idea of cutting it down the mid seam to save some time, but I found a lot of rust just behind the quarter windows and under the roof rails.
