Where to find replacement rear quarter panels

Hi all!

I recently purchased an 89 4Runner and I need new rear quarter panels.

Any ideas where to look?

I have tried some of the big after market companies and am coming up empty.

Thanks!

That is looking good. I planned to use steel and weld it in. How do I attach a glass panel to steel?

:EDIT: Reading now! Thanks!

Ok, I am stuck.

How do you attach the repair wheel arches? I don't see that listed anywhere.

repair panels ? or complete panels ?

for most of the installs , we use and recommend , 3M panel bonder
check it out .. lifetime guarentee , and much better then welding

The repair panel. The site shows how to install the full panel, but not the repair panel. I guess I can figure it out, it seems simple enough. I am hoping for a cheaper option as this is a 4Runner I am going to sell, but I REALLY like the fiberglass idea. I am positive I will be getting these for a Runner I am going to keep. GREAT idea!

Thanks!

I bought the wolf body panels, (specifically rockers and cab corners) and they are garbage, had to buy my own metal tools to re-shape them, could have made a better set in my garage.

We have some ideas on installing the "repair" panels as well .. but it is more of a bandaid . maybe email me and i can give you the speifics ...
also we have just "penned" a deal with (so far) 1 , USA distributor , I'm sure you will be able to buy these "locally" with out the obsene USA customs charges and Broker fees and me having to get your SS# to ship to USA (stupid) .. it's real expencive importing into your country !

Toyota Canada wants $1500.00 PER side
Toyota USA wants $1000.00 per side

our price will be $380.00 per side .

way easier to install , and NEVER any wheel opening rust again .
We have our first install happening late Sept . so watch in the vendor section for the install , with pics and discriptions

Good stuff. Thanks. Can't wait to see the pics for the install. Living in the rust belt, I hear you on the "not rusting ever again" part.
