I was sanding down my car for respray for prep and I found this

It was full of paper and bodyfiller, I can't afford a whole new rear quarter I have brought a new rear arch to weld in but the door jam part will be hard. Any ideas ?

I would do a bit of plate welding, get a mate who has a welder just to weld a bit of sheet metal on to that then sand it down so it's nice and smooth

Hope this helps


Thanks,
Lewis Watson-Thompson

So no ideas about getting the right shape. How about fiberglassing?

I would be making that sort of repair out of several bits of metal. Using card to make templates, Sellotape then together if you think you can get a bigger section out of one piece of metal. Rolling a small section of metal should be easy enough to match that I would think.
