You would be surprised how fast they go back together ,everything is new so you dont have to fight with anything .
I did have to brace the passenger door frame to keep it in line though ,first time i ever had to use a brace

New sheet metal sitting in place ,with a couple of clamps so the wind doesnt blow it off.
Tomorrow i have to drill the plug weld holes ,fit it all back together again ,with the trunk lid and doors ,to make sure everything has the propper gaps

The quarters to tail panel were next ,using my new trunk lid and bolting on the end caps i could see i needed to spread the driver quarter out 1/8 inch ,pryed it over and screwed it in place and my trunk lid was a perfect fit so i welded it up .
