Needing info on new wheel lips for 72 GTO

My girlfriends dad has a 72 GTO he wants me to start on and the rear wheel lips are rotten. I see no need to hang full quarters on the car and buying quarters at $400 a side (just for the outers!!!) is not even in the question.

I can fab up the repair panels for the front fenders and lower quarters easily, but I know ill have more time than its worth forming up inner and outer rear wheel lips.

Where would y'all recommend buying GOOD inner and outer wheel lips?

Thanks, Cody

If you are talking about the inner and outer wheelhouse, try OPGI

thanks for the link! Finally a reasonably priced source.

Do you have any firsthand experience with their quality and fit?

Thanks!

Specifically the fit on these? No.
But OPGI is a good company with good product. Best option, hands down.

Well, I ended up ordering outer wheelwells from OPGI and quarter skins from Goodmark. Ill get back on fit once I get to work on the project.

Thanks again for all of your suggestions!
