How much interest would there be in 1/4 panel patch panels?
I have noticed a severe lack in 1/4 panel sheet metal patch panels. I know you can get the fiberglass ones, but I think most, if not all, people would prefer a weld-in one.
I'm considering going out and having patch panels made for our cars. This would likely be from the body line behind the rear fender, down to the pinch weld at the bottom of the 1/4. At this time I don't think it would be cost effective to include the inside of the fender, because that would be pretty easily made up by anyone with any metal skills, and since it does not get seen, I imagine the real "Needed" parts is the correctly formed outside body panel.
They would be 100% American made and produced, and of the highest quality, so price would not be dirt-cheap, but quality would be stellar.
I will include a poll in a few minutes to see what people would be willing to pay for such a piece. Obviously it is not even worth me going through the trouble to try to set something up if it will cost $125 to make, box, and ship it and people are only willing to pay $100 for one...
