The front of the rear quarter panels were scooped and 53 mercury spears were used to accent them. The fender skirts were lipped to match the front fenders using 62 fairlane skirts.

In the rear the 53 Lincoln bumber was lowered 1" and narrowed 6" The license plate was frenched into the bumper and the continental kit was lowered 2 " the angle of the spare tire cover was slanted 4 degrees to match the angle of the rear window. Then the rest of the continental kit was molded to the quarters which were also pie cut and pulled in to add more taper to the body. Giving it the styling of old Chris Craft and Garwood wooden boats achieving the line flow from the front to the back and the natural curve. taking away the boxy look of the lincoln.
