January 10, 2019. The right quarter is surgically removed from the donor car,...
... and the original quarter from the Tiger.
Top and doors in primer and guide coat, for final finish.
I knew the car had been hit in this door jamb, but was unaware of the hole from the wheel well. My theory is that someone punched this hole in the inner fender, in order to push the door jamb back to vertical after an accident. If so, I cannot imagine the how/why of this ugly patch.
The 1/2 Alpine donor is getting smaller each day.
Engine compartment in primer for finishing.
The box section that makes up the inner part of the door jamb had some waves, and will be replaced with the quarter.
Here is the donor quarter primed and ready to be installed, whenever the wheelwell mess is remedied.
