Fortunately, the shape of those quarters is pretty basic, so hand-forming isn't out of the question. I have exactly the same problem with my 1964 Olds Jetstar 88 convertible. The only option for patch panels is a donor car, and I have yet to find one that is cheap enough to cut up that isn't rusted the same way. From the photos, it looks like door hinge pins and bushings are also on the to-do list.
