Rust repair panels??

So I am looking at repairing my 92 Extra cab truck. The rockers and cab corners are gone. I can get rockers no problem but the cab corners are a different story. There was a place called Wolf steel that make some but they are discontinued. Does anyone have a source for extra cab, cab corners??

Best plan is to find a wrecked truck and cut out the peices you need, im planning on the same thing for my bed, where my bumper pushed in and f-ed it all up

I have some Wolf rust repair panels.....

IMHO get ToyotaFiberglass.cm or cut parts off of non rusty body or ask a local body shop for CAPA certified parts (aka hoods, fenders etc)

No experience with them, just something I found the other day while looking for parts for my 4Runner

May as well do it right. These trucks hate the salt air where I live and need to be rebuilt every few years. Good luck

Hey ATatoy that is exactly what I need to do. Rust in the same spot. Did you make that rocker/cab corner or did you buy it somewhere?

The panels where fabricated at a bodyshop. Any good bodyman could make them.

I do not have alot of experience with bodywork, If I were to buy the fiberglass panels I need for my 4-runner, how do I "attach" them to the body so to speak because they can't be welded

One more question, how do I go about attempting to match the "tan" color paint of my '95 4-runner?

Get the code from your door sticker.
Or if you have an aftermarket paintjob then you have to try and match it up..

I think you use epoxy or somthing to hold the panels in..
Fenders and stuff just bolt on.
