Hello there
maybe a little late
But what the ....
what kind of photo's do you need for the panel
I did not understand what you needed
I have a panel truck
So maybe I can help you
just let me know
I used for the rear quarter the wheel arches from a fleetside bed
the arch is the same or you could try the 55-57 patch panel for the front fender
Have a close look at the"lip" the 58-59 front fender arches use a thicker lip
maybe this can help you
just let me know
Tony

58 checy panel pics

Hey Tony have 90 days to get it done so your not late at all...
What I have is the guy before me went and bent the rockers? from back of door to back of the truck with galanized and pop ribited. so I'm cutting it all away and bending sheet metal for it. What I'm wondering is on the underside of truck the sheet metal comes down to meet the outside panel, where does it stop does it come down to the 1/2 lip of the outside panel? or how far does it stop to the bottom of outside panel. What did you find that worked for the *** end where it is rounded and meets up with the back of the truck?
was thinking about buying a english wheel to make the back round quarter? but if I could find something close I would go that route..
Thanks for replying back to me,

I will make some pictures
I saw an ad on ebay a couple off years ago
Where they offered sheet metal for the rear quarter including the rear taillight hole
But that was New old stock
So I do not know if they are stamping those pieces any longer
As I told you
For the wheel arches I used a fleetside bed
But you have to check if the lip is the same
We also used a front fender from a 55-57 chevy truck
for the rear quater to the taillights
I will do my best on taking the right pictures from the underside
