1971 rear quarter

Is the rear quarter - where the tail light goes - on a 1971 AS a flat sheet or is it a formed panel?

Thanks....

The only non-formed panels from 1969 on up, are the panels below the front and rear windows.

Everything else on the end shells, is stretch formed.

If "alclad" is used, it cannot be stretched.

But, a flat sheet can be used. It won't match the other panels, but that's a personal choice.
