Is there a source for the rear outer wheel house sections on a 72 to 80 pick up or ram charger?

Have you checked mill supply? They carry some Dodge truck body parts.

Thanks stumpy! Yes I checked there I actually bought a lot of stuff there for this project. All parts seemed real nice so far except for the outer wheel house upper patch is kind of flat around the wheel opening.

All the ones I have seen do not have the correct bulge around the opening. I've been looking for a rust free short bed of either style but they are hard to find and usually already gone by the time I find one.

The Scamp is sold, now just two old trucks and one new one.

He is looking for patch panels for the inner wheel well where it meets the outer sheet metal. About 10 years ago those patch pieces were available, but I have not seen any since. I suspect his only option is going to be to make and weld on some patches. Gene

Thanks guys! I got a nice pair of lower rears off of an 89 8 ft bed. I will clean them up this week. Both the front and upper are gonna get repair pieces made I'm afraid.
