I dont think the rear quarter panel is a bolt on part, might have to cut it out and weld in another

Are you talking about where to cut it?

There are videos online on how to cut rear quarter panels. You have to keep in mind that they consist of two layers, inner and outer.

I've searched online. Nothing specific about an rsx. If there are any pointers on where to start cutting, what to use to cut. what to avoid. I've watched a bunch and each car is different. Was hopi g to hear from someone who has do e it. Thanks for.your replies

Cant speak specifically to the rsx but working in a bodyshop I've observed the replacement of a number of quarters.

**Assuming youre talking about "direct replacement"**

Generally you want to remove the smallest area you can(ie. as close as you can get to the damage)

You also want to avoid any body lines or complex angles. Assuming your replacement quarter is good then it makes most sense to cut on the flatest area possible as you won't be stuck trying to perfect body lines that were already factory.

You can use whatever youre comfortable with to cut it (i know a guy who uses an air hammer with chisel attachment, then refines the edge with a grinder).

You MUST cut your replacement so there is as little of a gap between the hole in your original and the replacement. You can give yourself some leeway here but cutting along a seem, this lets you weld to another component instead of butting panels together; however this relies on your new quarter being almost completely perfect.

If you have any more specific questions feel free to ask as Im not quite sure what you'd like to know.

EP3A2 is an unknown quantity on c-rsx
3 year bump

I didn't want to start a new thread for this post, so I figured bumping this one would be nice.

I just bought a set of Type R quarter panels which I will be using to replace my rusty ones. I've had them for 2 weeks and so far I put in about 4 hours of work removing the driver's side skin off the Type R set. I used the following tools: hammer, chisel, drill, 1/8th drill bit, spot weld cutter bit, etc.. When removing from the car, you will definitely need some sort of cutting tool and you will have to decide where you will be making your cuts.

The quarter panels are held on by spot welds. If you put your finger in the middle of your quarter panel and move it outward in any direction, you will see each spot weld at the end. They are circles and they are usually about 2" apart and go along the edges of each qp.

I do plan on fully replacing mine and will definitely post up a diy for everyone to see

Hey there I am brand new on the page, and I've wanted to reply to this for a while but when you are done with the quarter panel replacement (assuming it is the rear quarter panels just like what I am trying to do?) I am looking forward to the DIY instructional. Private message me if you feel like it to further discuss.
