Hello.
I work in classic car restoration shop and race car preparation.
My specialty is sheet metal body parts fabrication and welding.
This is some of my works.






Recently I have access to the original Subaru Impreza 22B.






If there are interested I can produce metal rear quarter panel for 22B.
For measurements and patterns I can use original car.
So if you are interested or have a comment or question please post it or send me a mesage.

Thanks.

Recently I received an order to make set of rear quarter panels for 22B.
If you are interested I will show you the entire process of making panels for 22B.

First I made a fiberglass mold on the original car to take all the necessary dimensions and shape.








After careful measurement and checking shapes I cut out the metal and marked all the necessary information for shaping and forming parts.









After many hours of hammering and wheeling on the english wheel and frequently checking the shapes on the mold and templates most of the main parts is shaped.


I still need to make the lower part of the quarter panel and the rear of the sill.

Great first posts btw!

Where are you/your shop located?

Any idea on the costs for the rears completed?

All parts are shaped, trimmed and ready for welding.
This welding process has to be very slow and meticulous to prevent deformation.

Welcome! Thank you for documenting this process :)

I've tried doing this myself, but it's not nearly as pretty, haha

These panels look great, I'm in to see it fitted and finished on a car and painted. This kit would be great for IF someone would damage a rear fender or front fender to just replace it.

Good stuff can't wait to see more.
