    Anyone ever see this place or buy from them?


    On the same line how different are the rear quarters 4dr and 2dr quarter panels? Could one be used as a good

    template for the other? Anyone ever try that as my lower rear quarters are toast?

    Im thinking the only difference between the two and four door quarter panels is just the back glass, so im sure some mods would have to be done, im just surprised to see a company offer anything like that! I see the rockers, and lower door skins alot but never a quarter panel, were getting one step closer to getting parts for our cars!!

    Yes that was a nice surprise! My quarters rotted just on the bottom but there are few spots up top could

    be worse if the paint was off. Glad it is available, when I look at the 2dr and 4dr other then up top

    they look pretty close.

    Nice find, Bro!

    From roughly the center of the wheel opening to the rear they're identical.  The top will be slightly different near the window but if you cut from the top or side body line you'll be fine.  If you get one (or both sides) you'll see where you need to cut.

    Yes, very nice find indeed. I have a couple of 3"+ diameter rust holes behind my lower trim on both sides of my rear quarters. I could simply cut out a perfect patch panel instead of making my own at that price!

    Thanks for the info yeah I am going to go for a pair both sides are just a lot of fab at the bottom. And they

    would seem to be the perfect patch panels trim what you don't need.

    Great find!

    Would love to see a full quarter panel for coupe though, from rear tails to the door, i.e. Full wheel opening included.

    Slowing making headway on some good body panel reproduction part offerings!

    Great news on the quarter panels. Now I hope they start breaking them into sections. I also have the large hole behind the rear wheel under the trim, driver's side only. Will get out to the remote antique to vintage bone yard here in W.KY and look for our cars and drop a line if successful.

    would the lower door patch panels work to patch the lower section of the rear quarter behind the tires?

    Even if it's not a perfect fit it would make a good panel even if you had to alter it slightly especially

    if you have rot like I do in the lower quarters. Hopefully soon I can get a pair of the quarters and skins.
