Buy a quarter panel from a junk yard that you want to replace tell the junk yard where you need it cut and tell them all of it that you need then using a pair of nibblers cut out the area that you want to replace. To do this use a measuring tape to measure the area to cut out. Next get some 3/4 masking tape and run the tape along the lines that you want to cut. test cut a piece of metal to see how much the nibbler cuts out and how jagged it leaves the cut and figure this into what you need to cut from the piece from the junk yard. once it is taped off remove bumper, and any wires that might run threw the holes on the panel also remove fuel tank hose if it's in the panel you are replacing. Once its cut remeasure the 1/4 panel and grind any spots that might be to long then match the parts together. ON THE INSIDE OF THE PANNEL WHERE YOU CAN'T SEE IT WELD SOME TABS (Spot Weld) 3 or 4 tabs that will help you line up the two pieces together then slide it in place get one end lined up and a space of the wire you will use to weld it together once it is all lined up pull tape off and use a grinder or wire wheel to remove paint away from the area to be welded by 1 inch. Next start welding it together be careful not to weld one side more than another or yo will get warp age, also don;t let it get to hot. take your time welding it together be sure to get a solid weld be sure all holes that have to be lined up line up. after welding it together then grind it flat and used bondo to fill in and smooth out the welded edge prep with 2 part epoxy primer spray the bare metal and blend into the paint, this will show you if you have any areas to work on. THIS IS NOT A EASY JOB BUT CAN BE DONE. I have cut two cars in half and have welded then together and they were stronger than when they were new. but this requires knowledge of windshield repair and wheel alignment. good luck and if you need more help let me know so I can help you.

You probably need to set the user settings to "long doc" mode.

1) When the machine is in the standby state,
press the NEW FILE key and Count Only key
simultaneously. During the user mode, the
LEDs of the NEW FILE key and Count Only
key illuminate and the address (U01-U10)
and data (the last digit) appear on the
counter display.
2) When changing the address, use the NEW
FILE key. Each time NEW FILE is pressed,
the address changes, cycling from U01 to
3) When changing the data, use the Count Only
key. Each time Count Only is pressed, the
data changes.
4) Pressing the Stop key exits the user mode.

Long document mode =U10; 0=normal and 1=long document mode.

How to remove rear quarter panel

It has to be cut off with a sheet metal power shear and the new part welded back on, it is not for the home repair person, a skilled body repair man needs to do this.

My 2011 ford transit connect won't shift into reverse, how do I solve this?

I have a 2011 Ford Transit Connect, my daily driver. Today I drove and parked. I went to drive again and could not get the vehicle out of PARK. I called a tow truck in and the driver showed me the problem. There is a black cover near the gearshift lever that is similar in size and shape to a dime. It can be removed with a small screwdriver. Once removed, there is a white switch revealed. When you push down on the switch while pulling back on the gearshift lever, you will be able to shift out of PARK.

Change the light buld in my 2007 chevy uplander tail turn signal with the size in book however it stays let does not blink

Does only one side do it or both. If signals on both sides fail to flash but stay on steady, then it is probably the flasher unit. If you don't hear a clicking sound inside the vehicle its probably got welded contacts. It should be near the fuse panel, just unplug and plug the new one in.

TIG MIG Difference

For certain type of work TIG is required, like welding chrome moly for some racing organizations. Intricate work, like gunsmithing is also well suited to TIG. TIG is used by many auto restorers who prefer a more precise, perfect finish that requires little to no finish work. TIG is most similar to gas welding in technique, so if you've done oxy-fuel welding, TIG should be a natural transition. MIG is required by law and by insurance companies in many localities for structural repair of automotive frames. MIG is also much easier to learn and faster to weld. For doing other types of welding, like sheet metal, it can be a matter of personal preference. For an auto body repair shop or a novice welder, a MIG is a good, practical all-around welder.
