Hey guys my brother and I finally have the chance to run in a derby we were given a mid 70s lincoln and a early 80s lincoln they both have rusty rears the frames are ok but the sheet metal is semi screwed. These cars were free and we just want to have fun in them for our first demo. We are running wire class and can tuck the trunk and prebend and notch but no creasing. What do the fellas of wecrash suggest? Thanks

Tuck the trunk lid, use a cutoff wheel and remove the lower quarter panels behind the wheel well from the seam down (likely the rotted part). Then wrap the remaining quarter panels around at a 90 deg. angle. Pre bend your bumper upward and drill and run Alot of 9 wire to tighten it all up. Don't forget to dimple the frame to encourage packing.
On my 81 mark body I wanna u the trunk lid down in side the the trunk what my question is I've been told its a bitch casuse of the round section in trunk lid so I tryed a square vic style lid but she's a lil to wide to sit inside where the lid would normally sit was wondering if 80's trunk lid would work or would sit in between the fenders like normal ..this is my first new style trunk or doing the u style trunk any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!
