    I’m at the stage of cutting out the cancer on my 66’s rear quarters.

    Any advice from others that have already done it?
    Pics are greatly appreciated.

    I can likely answer whatever you need. If you can post a few pics I will be happy to walk you through removing the plague that is trying to attack your car.

    I've done it several times. I'm pushing my 65 coupe into the shop today.

    I apologize for the huge delay. New to the app, didn’t set notification and left for Hawaii for 9 days.

    In my opinion you will be better off replacing the entire quarter panel and likely the outer wheelhouse. Results will be better and less welding will be needed. I found a NOS Ford quarter for mine but that was $320 20 years ago. Not sure what they are now...and not sure of the quality of aftermarket quarters.

    I would order a new rear quarter panel from Mustangs Unlimited. I would personally cut out the areas marked and used them as a template to cut those sections out of the new quarter panel. Test fit, tack weld, then butt weld everything in to button it up.

    A die grinder will work perfectly.

    Looks like my quarters are in decent shape. I suggest getting a whole quarter. You will likely need the inner trunk drops too. Make sure your trunk gutter under trunk lid is good before I describe easy repair.
