Does anyone know of a company that makes a small repair panel for the area right behind the door striker, down low. I hate to buy a complete rear quarter patch panel when I only need a small section for both driver and passenger side.

Well, that's maybe the kind of thing that local fab shops or body shops just make themselves? It's not too curved where you're talking about, is it? Or does it cross one of the body lines?
Other than that, (and even though you're here in CA) check out Jeff's to see if they list anything like it. Since they're in the rust-prone area that they are, they tend to have some individual panels that most of us other vendors don't get calls for.
Is it on the outside (fender) or the inside (door jamb area) where you need to replace?

Not sure what your other options are, since finding another Bronco that you can remove that piece from is not necessarily the best route to take either.
Make your own I say. Hey, if Chip Foose can do it... So can you!

Good luck.

Paul thanks for the suggestion. Not sure if I should be compared to Chip Foose though! :)

If you say it can be done, so I will try.

"There is no try. There is only do. Do, or do not. If you do not, you fail. Hmmm"
Yoda.

And besides, I'm pretty sure there is nothing left for you to try Tom. Haven't you done it all already? :arrow:

Edit: While I still like my so-called quote, so will leave it for now, I just verified that the actual quote is: "No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try."

Carries more weight of course, having been uttered by the master himself, but either one gets the point across.

My motto is I plan on doing it all twice, in case I did it wrong the first time! :finger:
