The next thing you should do is pull the rear bumper off and check the rear valance. Those are know for rotting out where the bumper bolts. If that is gone then then id start to rethink the plan. NPD and a few other companies have full 1/4's for that car but the rear valance is usually on back ordered. By the amount of mud i see in the picts you also want to make sure the inner 1/4's arent rotted. ( Just my 2cts after restoring a bunch of ta's) If you found a good donor shell for $500-600 (f-birds are fairly common) it be easier and cheaper to just swap everything over if your doing it yourself.
