    On my 68 T-all I may have to buy a donor vehicle to replace the back rear panels because my wheel wells are rusty. If that be the case, what years of T-alls would fit my 68? And anyone know of a donor vehicle available? Thanks!

    61-68. Very common rust area though.

    I think I may have found a 67 T-all with good back quarter panels but the 67 quarter panels don't look anything like my 68???

    That's odd. They should. Your's look right. Get a pic of the 67 if you can.

    My bad, I looked at it closer and it's the same. The only problem is it's in Oregon and I'm in Kansas. I did make contact with a hot rod shop here in KC and they told me they can fix it by forming new pieces where it's bad at. Im going take it there and see what it will cost. Any idea how much?

    They're the same ! Just different trim. Nothing has changed.

    Thanks Jeff and Stroker. It's getting frustrating trying to find parts for it and I don't want to pay through the nose on the quarter panels.

    Get a shrinker and a stretcher and some sheet metal. Watch a couple episodes of Iron Resurrection and...

    If I were to replace the old ones with panels that are not rusted out, how hard would it be to take off the old off and install new one? Where is the point where I cut off?

    That's really gonna depend on how far the rust goes...all the rust will need cut out....if there was a body seam close by that would be the ideal spot to start from..drill out spot welds and spot weld the new back in...without the seam the panel will have to be cut...there again its dependent on where the rust stops...
    Welding thin sheetmetal in not fun..its certainly not a place you want to learn how to weld...
    Fitting the new patch panel is critical...

    Thanks, I thought that would be out of my league. I'm tracking down a few leads on some quarter panels. I think this "may" be the best and cheapest way to go for me.

    can someone tell me how much I can expect to pay for someone to take my old panels off and installed the new door panels? I got a bid from a place here in town and he said it would be about $1,000 per side.
    Is that about right??? Is so, I'm going to forget about fixing this old girl up.

    That's the part where I said the cost can be more than the value...i wouldnt be shocked by the 1k price tag..a good bit of work would go into it...especially if they stand behind their work...

    for $2000 you can buy a lot of tools and try yourself.

    I don't trust myself in doing this kind of work. I know my limits and I don't want to even try and do this.
