Hummm, last time I looked at my car the rear 1/4 panels didn't unbolt, and that means you would have to weld it back in, and then grind the weld back down, and still bondo over the welds. So in my eyes, it would be much easier to just get a dent puller, and a tub-O-bondo, and build some strength in your arms.

not sure of the coupes, but book time for a vert 1/4 panel

is something like 12 hours, its not a super easy thing to do

like a bolt on body part.

It would be just as easy to bondo up the 1/4 panel that is on your car, as it is to weld a new one in.

only way to get a panel 100% straight is to use filler from one end

to the other, any "show" car is carefully applied filler on the

whole car. Anytime you have filler meeting panel it shifts over

time and looks a bit wavy.
