1968 Mustang Patch Panel Problems

I am in the process of restoring a 1968 Mustang Coupe and am in need of a little help. There is a small amount of rust on the front quarter panel on the passenger side, right infront of the rear weel. I can find small patch panels for the 65/66 but can't locate one for the 67/68. Is this part not in existance or will the 65/66 part work? Thanks in advance, this is my first rebuild and I am reying to do it as quickly as possible, I know that this is not usually advised but I do have a limited time frame i'm working with. So far so good, when I bought it the drivetrain was almost all brand new all it needed was cosmetic TLC and so far thats all I can see that she really needs. Check out my web page for pics!

How bad is it? You could make a patch or buy quarter panel wheel flare replacement that sells for $29.95 from NPD

You'll want the "wheel flair" in the body section.

If it is rusted through in that spot chances are good you will find more rust inside so why not check out a q-panel skin? They are cheap and not much more work than a patch.
