Panel Replacement. All at once or??

Post by darrenx33 » May 10th, 2017 2:00 pm

So using the project as a reference, a good one I must say. I will be working on my 72 Vette which got rear ended last year in traffic. Bumpers pushed in and shattered the tail panel up thru the tail lights and bumpers pulled out the fiberglass on the side (quarters). Because I discovered that my car was hit and poorly repaired at one time I decided to do new quarters and tail panel rather than try and glass my repairs as well as someone elses hacky work. Top deck is fine.

My question is. Do I pull all the panels off and then put the replacements on? Or do I do one at a time and use the others as a guide? If so, which panel should I start with? Thanks in advance.
