Does anyone make a replacement piece for the metal just around the wheel opening for a 70 cuda ? Hate to buy a rear quarter for a couple of inches of metal

you buy a 1/4 skin and cut it for your needs , but if were me and its rusty or cut and rolled for drag car I would rather put on a full 1/4 . but that is me. would rather spend a little extra for better quality job. I think those are your only choices.

No rust, a new skin was put on and then the previous owner hacked the front and back for bigger tires. I would like to do the wheel opening stretch properly so it wouldn't look like a hack job. Mopar body panels must be made twice as good as they cost twice as much as a comparable chevy panel . LOL

You might find something on Sherman's site as a "rust repair" panel; they ussed to sell smaller panels like wheel-opening flanges, lower rear quarters, etc.

For every Mopar panel, there are probably 5 Chevy panels sold, which is economics. Plus, we're just Special!
