I am in the process of replacing the rear cross member on the subframe on a 27 Coupe. This piece is part of the body, and I have figured out how to fabricate a replacement. In order to access this, I removed the rear center panel of the body shell. It is too tight to re-install, and I was wondering how to produce a little more flex in the body to allow re-assembly.
Also, are the angles on the rear center panel spot-welded onto the panel? They appear to be, but the joints are very weak.
I'll try again.
Will I need to remove a quarter panel to re-install the rear center panel?
Are the angles spot-welded onto the rear center panel?
Since I have a '26 coupe I might be able to help you, but I am not sure what you are talking about. Can you send pictures of the area in question so I can look for you and try and answer your question? Jim Patrick
If you want to give me a call we talk about it. I did all this on a 26 coupe we restored. It would be easier for me to explain on the phone. Leon
Thanks for the information!
