hey i just bought my first bronco the other day. Its pretty good running conditiona nd has been sitting for a longgg time. The worst problem is my doors are both beat to sh*t and the passenger side quarterpanel is pretty rusted. I know that it is wayy beyond fixing with bondo or anything. The only 2 solutions i have for the quarterpanel would be to get a new one and put it on and paint it, or my cousin thinks it would be cheaper and better to cut the rust right out and make the wheel wells bigger on both sides then touch it up with bondo. The truck is on 35's so it would look ok. If anyone has had this problem i was just wondering what you did or if u have any ideas for my truck let me know cuz this is my first bronco!

Time for some investigation. You need to find out just fow far the rust has gotten into the rest of the wheel well. It may turn out to be too far, for cutting out to be an option. If you do end up needing a replacement panel, finding one in a junkyard would be one option. Another is an aftermarket replacement, or an NOS replacement. Check into LMC Truck and Dennis Carpenter

ive looked and its not that bad, it goes a couple inchs up, like right to end of the fender flares. Ive looked at my local junkyards too and none of them have and 79 broncos or parts so i might have to go aftermarket, but i live in canada and i havent found any stores or anything that might be able to heklp me

if all you're needing, is around the wheel well only, then you can graft on a piece from a pickup bedside. you just won't be able to use the whole pickup's side
