Have same issues on both sides. Doors bottoms are rotted out, same goes for outer rocker panels and lower quarter panels. Marked area need to be replaced. Now, doors and rockers I guess can be used from any other model, but what about quarter patch panels, I don´t think they are reproduced? Maybe try to save the wheel house lip/arch, and use part of this panel?
Whats the best way to approach this?
Thanks//

Thanks Lee, I have in fact had a good look. I wasn´t planning on having full quarters installed, hopefully that patch panel can be used. Let´s see if anyone done it before.

Thanks Mikey. I was planning to save the wheel well. This project is a bit further down the road. Who knows, maybe there will be repos of this part when the time comes.

Sure can Stretch but yes, is has been "worked" on. My guess is that this was done when the car was resprayed, sometime in the 70´s(?). The marked areas, similar on both sides are built up using bondo/filler from the rocker upwards, which both ocular/magnet exam confirms.
