New Project - 1965 Olds 442

Thanks for the response. I was afraid that no one was reproducing patch panels, but hoped that a Chevelle panel might work. Maybe by hunting salvage yards locally, I might be able to come up with a F85 panel that will work but, of course, the problem there is finding one that is any better than what I have. I 'spect I'll probably end up rolling a piece of sheet metal and making a patch panel. Also, thanks for the heads-up on the Olds site. Maybe some of those guys have some ideas. I've attached a pic of the car and a closeup of one of the quarter panels. As you can see, she's no cherry, but I just finished a '40 Chevy coupe that was worse than this thing is, so there is hope!!! Thanks.
