I'm tubbing my 65', and knew I would have to redo the quarter panels, but I guess I didn't WANT to notice the wheelhouses. Gosh; they're a mess! Being that they are rounded and curved, and i don't have an English wheel (or much more; I couldn't use one if I did own one); what is the best way to repair these? Thanks

Take it all out and go aftermarket......OR, get out the cardboard / tape and start making templets, you may need to do it out of a couple pieces that you can copy into metal, OR, put the frame side stock piece back in and fill the gap.

Nope; the removed pieces are fine. In the bottom picture you see the blue tape. This is where the previous owner tried to patch with bondo. Here's a better pic of the worst side. This one is through a crack to the outside body as seen

That looks similar to mine, repaired many years ago. When I have my quarters off I am going to rebuild mine, piece by piece.

i did the same thing. I have a 70 swinger with the same rust as mopartist. I went to the junkyard and got the wheelhouses from a 73.
