1968 GTO RH Door corner patch?

I have a GTO passenger door that has rust damage to the front bottom of the door (inside curve to below where door mount bolts are). In that corner, I do not have good metal to attach the lower door patch panel. Does anyone sell inside corner patch? If not, any ideas other than cutting used donor door or an expensive new re-pop door shell? Advise or sources welcome.

P.S. Also looking for good used deck lid.

Several times in that area I've repaired what otherwise amounted to nice '69 GTO doors. 4 door front LeMans doors are good for this, but typically when I've parted 4 dr Tempests & LeMans, I just haven't saved the doors. Typically, have a bunch of doors in the racks & 4door stuff doesnt move Last two times for the same repair, Ive went through the door stock & found a damaged '69 or '70 -72 GrandPrix door that was beyond repairing, but had a solid front corner all the way down to crimped door skin. The contour was the same, the flanged area, just a little different. Next air chiseled the door skin, & carefully cut out the needed inner structure with my airsaw or sawsall. Do you have access to any locals with non desirable doors that a section can be cut out of?
