Sure wish I was closer to Idaho Falls. I need the rear section replaced after a rear ender. I have the section off of another 944.

There's practicing with the new Sawsall...

and then there PRACTICING, with the new sawsall ...

Man, I even parked my 944 in Lincoln Park neighborhood of East LA for a few months ( gang house next door ) and THAT didn't even happen.

You know, they have a nice cutaway on the Haynes manual, look at that next time

Thanks for the laugh, I needed it

Well I'm replacing the 924 fenders with 944 fenders and quarters. Fiberglass would have been much easier, but I really don't like the fit and finish of fiberglass components.
Heres a pic with the new quarter clamped in place for a test fit.

Well,...I am waiting for parts. I am probably going to do a conversion on it. We'll see how that turns out, if it sucks I can always go back to original.....

Cutting the old panel out is fairly easy. Trimming and fitting the new panel is much more time consuming.

Please tell me you didn't grind off all the galvanizing. . . it looks like you did from the pic and if so, it's gonna be a rust bucket in a year.

Nope, didn't grind any extra off... The only exposed areas will be right at the weld (galvanizing burns off) and they will be completely resealed with seam sealer and heavy undercoating.

This is not my first quarter replacement.....I think it'll survive!!

Wolf, I am sure they will have a similar thing in the States. We have a "Cold Galv" that is painted on galvanised steel structures where metal has been bared for welding. Works pretty well here on our process plant 1km from the sea. You can then paint sealer and undercoating over that.
