I replaced my 1/4 & wheelhouse on my '73 while it was on stands with no problem. Just make sure you line up the body lines. Make sure the door is on and tack up the 1/4 to match the body line going down the middle. But before you do that you have to make sure the door line is aligned to the body line on the front fender. It's like working a puzzle with just a straight line.

If you have an aftermarket 1/4 panel, adjustments WILL have to be made, you can bet on it!

It doesn't have to be sitting the ground. Just make a template to make things alot easier.

I am having a lot of trouble with my after market quarters. I did put in new wheel wells. The left has been a lot of trouble.
