Adam uses the HTP Quick Spot II resistance spot welder to weld the tubs together.



A combination of resistance spot welds and MIG plug welds attach the wheel tub to the cars are structure.

In the shot, it is clearly visible how much wider the driver's side wheel tub is compared to the passenger side tub. Note how the rear seat brace was modified to attach to the new inner wheel tub, and also how the cabin floor was trimmed to accommodate the larger tub.



The tub is completed after some grinding and a fresh coat of epoxy primer to prevent corrosion.

The new quarter panel is prepped to begin test fitting.



The e-coat is stripped in the weld areas and weld-through primer is sprayed on the bare steel.



Several holes are punched in the areas where the quarter panel will be plug welded to the body structure.



Soon, the quarter panel is hung on the car to evaluate the fit.

The panel is screwed in place with sheet metal screws and clamped in place for welding.








The fit is checked against the door to make sure that the gap is acceptable. When everything looks right, the panel is welded together using an HTP Quick Spot II resistance spot welder as well as a MIG 200 wire feed MIG welder.
