I do this for a living 30 years now and i can help you I think. Without seeing the damage i would hesitate to tell yu if it is repairable or not. If it is damaged beyond repair, you can get a quarter cut off another car and splice it on yours, if you have never done this and do not have the tools it would be very hard to do without prior experience. If it isn't real bad i can help you to know how to go about repairing it, but then this too requires skill and would be hard for you to do without prior knowledge.

The passanger door on a 2006 mustang gt convertable was pushed forward and when u open the door it catches the front quarter pannel. So I need to move it back a little bit so it does not catch. ??


take a small piece of wood 1"x 3" x about 4" long and place inside door jam at hinge , slowly close door until it puts pressure on wood,... push door shut gently and remove wood and try shutting door , this is what they call redneck auto body. to do it right you will need to remove hinge and add washers to back side of hinge plate so it moves hinge out thus pushing door alignment back if hinge is welded on add washers to door side where hinges attach to door.

Need to replace rear quarter panel and can't find the part online. Is this the correct term for the part I need. I will purchase it once I can find it at a good price.


Yes that is the right term, front and rear quarter panels. Try calling a store like Napa. If they can't get it they would know of a local body supply near you, where ever you are.

hope this helps.

Grounding problem?


There should be a small ground wire from the battery negative to the body. It is usually part of the negative ground cable.
Many years ago, and your 85 could be in that range, a ground strap was located at the rear of the right or left cylinder head and grounded to the body to commonize the ground between engine and body.
Check to see if either one are present and let me know, we can go from there.
