And it comes pre-bent, notice the top flange at the glass opening.  :P

Theyíre out there. Is Dale Murphy too far (Heatherbrae)?

Honestly, shipping a large ďNOSĒ panel is fraught. Most freighters officially exclude such items from their list of insurance-acceptable cargo (but will take it no liability). And you want the fastest freight, itís the least time for gorillas to go ape with it.

What is access like from inside the car?

I think he still just trades as Dale Murphy.

See if heís inclined to offer his two bobís worth if you can drop by after shift. Heís an old schooler and would probably get it mostly out with wiggle wire, spotter, all that. One of the few blokes who is not afraid to repair a steel petrol tank with appropriate precautions. Otherwise his mate Grahame around the corner (Extreme Blasting) might have suggestions on who to ask.

It doesn't remove the need for dialogue with idiots, but as a soothing companion/motivator you might find the following YT channels of interest, even as silent movies:

I too reckon thats a repair rather than a replace.

Remove all the trim from the inside and push out as much as you can ... then fill.

The sculpting will take some meticulous care but its not impossible.

Far easier than removing the panel and welding a new one in, let alone the challenge of finding one.

Although Monza Motors may have a car they're wrecking.

What's the thing to the left of the fuel filler? Is it a rod or drain? Was it there or has someone added it?

Good pic by the way. I have disassembled a few of these but never had that panel off so nice to see what it looks like naked.
