It was in 1964 that the Chevrolet Impala would get a rounded look, with its recognizable inverted U shaped trim strip above the taillights and body-colored panel.

Next the side gaps were established and the opening was tack welded to the lid.

With the Classic Industries replacement quarter-panel held in place the original was marked for cutting. In the last installment repair of the truck floor, the right quarter-panel and wheelhouse had begun with replacement panels from Classic Industries.
It was easy to locate properly as the Classic Industries replacements the trunk floor is made in two sections fit perfectly and the rear section includes a pair of body mount holes that positioned it. Both came with a manual shift transmission. Using a combination punch and flanging tool from Eastwood, holes for rosette welds were put into the new edge of original wheelhouse, which was also flanged to fit flush with the new, modified wheelhouse. The 1962 Chevrolet Impala had a new C pillar style, with the exception of the 4-door hardtop. Rosette welds were used to simulate the spot welds done at the factory.

Trimming the replacement part not only saved time and effort, it also served to maintain the alignment between the top of the quarter-panel and the trunk opening.
