There is a natural curve outward of the quarter panel around the wheel well area.
It's the widest part of the car.
When you cut off the lower part of the quarterpanel you lose structural integrity of the panel and that wide part 'falls in' . It makes the car narrower there above the wheel well.
If you look down the length of the car, the quarter panels flare out like a woman's hips.
I have pics but they are at home.......
