Tuesday night after 8:00 I got a g-body 45 degree body line bent into the 69 charger upper quarters & getting the bedcover to line up with it. Pulled off rear window & bed trim. Started figuring for steel rear visor & deleting rear window trim. Figuring on slightly extending sailpanels for more of a fastback look & making them come to a point rather than a flat edge. May use upper pair of front fenders turned upside down for my extended lower rear quarters.
Starting to look like a plan.

Here's a test fit of quarter panel held on with 4 screws. Upper charger panel also just screwed on . cuts just tack welded. old wheel has over 3" extra clearance. Cardboard & black tape in place where sail panel will get extended.
