replacing tail panel advice needed

Post by GregS_72 » Jun 23rd, 2019 1:50 pm

I have to replace the tail panel on my '72 project. Can I do it with body off the chassis (preferred since it will save me some hassle) or should I get the body temporarily back on the chassis? Any concerns with body lines lining up, etc if I do it off the chassis? It is just the tail panel after all, not a quarter panel where I would be worried about door gaps, etc. Thoughts?
