how high do you go gary, apart from when we sniff the evostick>? how high on the rear quarter lowers, ooo err have you pics? also, should i take 2mm off one of the doors? to get perfect gap? i have looked at all the panels and each door i have is different than the next? what was going on at the ford factory? at this point all panels are stock but theres no way im going to get 2mm tolerance without grinding something. this is it baby. as Micheal Jackson said before his last tour "This is it" and then the world changed. interplnaetary watches and water clocks gary, who knows what is beyond the great beyond. cortina and summer days at the yat all the way. strawberries and lady t? you bet ch ya

Yes Stoneguard Pete.. Don't know about earlier models but it was on later FORDS

And the painter will know how to blend it in or where to stop it (usually just under body lines) :thumbup:

yes....... guess doing the quarters and lower front wings if blended in without lines would a better way to go

I would deffo stone guard sills and blend to the swage line on rear lower quarter as well as front valance. I couldn't tell nog's had been done when I saw it and for peace of mind you know it makes sense, the last thing you want to do is be confronted by loads of pin prick rust spots a year after driving about to shows etc. I understand you want it to be original but it's got to last too after the effort you've invested in the bodywork.
