Converting a 1972 Porsche 914 to a 914/6 GT – Part 2 rear quarter build In Part 1 of this a 1972 Porsche 914 conversion to a 914/6 GT race car, we show the car after media blasting and outlined all the work that we will be completing. Now we will tackle the left hand side, starting with the rear quarter replacement and alignment. As you begin to study the pictures, you will soon see badly repaired and replaced accident damaged panels. Our task is to correct this by making a new rear quarter panel, but keeping the door handle recess section. Then we repair, followed by grafting in the new panel. Our final stage to wrap up this part, is to graft the new quarter panel seamlessly into the body with correct factory alignment. Follow the progress of this 1972 Porsche 914 conversion in the pictures below: Damage to rear quarter. Still covered in body filler even after media blasting. This car had been previously poorly repaired on the left-hand side. Panels were welded back on with gross misalignment, then adjusted with body filler. Bad area cut away. The weld area only is removed with a 1/4″ fast cutting wheel. Tools that will be used in the metal finishing process. ‘Slapper,’ various hand weights, and a machine tool file. Metal finishing around the door pocket. Rear quarter now ready to take the new GT flare! View to the rear of the body. Overall view.
