Patch panels aren't sold, just the entire rear 1/4's. To my knowledge only full 1/4 panels, 1/4 panel skins and partial 1/4 panel skins are sold. Anything smaller than that will have to be fabricated personally. A number of parts resteration houses have them from $150+. I would fabricate my own if its just a small area.

There is a parts store in Two Rivers, WI and they carry just about everything you will need for any car. They also have the lowest prices I've found anywhere. I'm not sure if they sell half of a 1/4 or if it only comes in a full 1/4, but i do know for that full 1/4 it's only like $140. They have a website which is <a href="http://www.cooltruckparts.com" target="_blank">www.cooltruckparts.com</a> (i've n ever been to there website so you might have to suff a little find what you need, but i have a couple of there magazines here and I have had absolutly no complants with there parts.

BigRod is right.
Check out http://browns-of-tworivers.com
I bought full quarters for my 67 chevelle at half of the oem price. Quite the savings!

Racenuts,
What were the panels like and have you installed them yet? If you did, how much extra work did you have to do to get the body lines to match up, or did everything seem to work out reasonably well? Just curious.

Kevin

Thumbs up

KEVIN45,

Maybe I was fortunate, but, everything lined up. I even replaced my floor panels from browns. Other than having to move my inner fender panels a little & straightening all my flanges really good, it was alot easier replacing the quarters than expected. I will always order from them first, an excellent bargain.
