Recommendations for this rust repair

The 66 GTO I have is in need of some rear quarter repair. It would appear that it has rusted from the inside out, due to a piece of sound-deadening insulation from the factory. I am guessing that once the wheel-well got a few rust holes in it, moisture was thrown on the insulation and it acted like a sponge.

Any ideas on the best way to repair this? A full repo quarter is not available.

Jason,

suggest you give National Parts Depot a call. They have full quarters for Lemans and GTO.

Re: Recommendations for this rust repair

Looks like lower "cheater" panels are avail.:

...That's the route I would go. But I'd also want to make sure that the rust isn't any further up too as they sell a full "cheater" panel as well:

All I see on the website is skins, like this one. Do they have something not listed on the website? Thanks!

The rust is not any further up, as I have checked it good from the inside. The rear of the panel was repaired behind the wheel, but someone did a much better job on it.

Re: Recommendations for this rust repair

For a repair like this, would it be best to butt-weld, or flange-weld it?
