65 GTO front fender inner brace

Does anyone know if the inner brace for the back of the fender is available in repro? Many of the fenders I have seen that rot on the normal lower section also rust through the brace.

Is the attached picture the part you are seeking? Mine was rusted and I wanted to replace it, but like you I could not find one from Ames, OPGI or YearOne. I thought a pic might help in the search.

I believe he is looking for the reinforcing "Brace" behind the lower Dog Leg, which I do not think anyone is offering for 1965.

Gotcha. Iíve seen lower patch panels with and without the lower portion of the brace in your photo from both OPGI and Ames. Like you, have not seen a complete brace. The lower portion of mine was rusted completely through. I cut it out and tack welded a homemade ď [ ď shaped metal piece fabricated on a vice. Not as perfect as the original, but strong.
