    My low mileage 95gt, 63k original miles and 2nd owner, is developing rust about 6" spand around the rear wheel lip. Iv searched ford dealers and no place has a replacement quarter. Nor does the aftermarket. Would really like to just have the whole thing replaced over patching. Any ideas or possibilities of new left quarters hanging around? For a coupe.

    Try contacting LKQ, Keystone, I'm spacing out on the others right now but someone else will chime in.

    EDIT: Moved this thread to body/paint.

    Try the junk yard?
    It may not be new, but you can likely find a cancer free one.

    The quarter panel on a unibody car is the whole piece tha is the c piller, rocker, and other structural parts..... You need the skin, you would be better off making a patch panel

    Welding in a patch panel isn't the end of the world, just get your welds ground down nicely without pinholes and throw some filler on it.
