    got back at it and done some work on the right side rear. I didn't want to spend $400 on the quarter panel so I cut out a piece of the old roof section and made a lower panel.

    It just seems different.

    I donít know why it looks so out of place to see a early on a rotisserie 🤪
    You donít look twice at a car in a 90degree position, anyways you have to be feeling pretty good to have it to this point. Nice work👍
