Default Rear quarter panel

Anyone have any experience with this website? They're selling replacement rear quarter panels for dirt cheap. I'd call them, but I figured one of you guys had to come across them, and if not maybe its a good find.

Results for Mazda

Their quoted shipping costs on the website arn't bad either, for me at least..

Those look like they are almost a bolt in affair. Aside from smoothing the top of course.

Dose anyone have a photo of thier rear quarter OFF the car?

Google search "miata rear quarter panel", i would but im at work. If someone does this they should post some pics of the frame behind the quarter panel. I got a chassis with extensive quarter panel damage and need to see If Its repairable.

I think this would only be a viable option if your rear quarter panel is completely wrecked. If you're using it just to repair rocker panel rust, then it looks like a lot more work then just getting someone to cut out the affected area and weld new metal in. These pieces need to be welded, and think about how large of an area will need to be cut out and smoothed. It's such a large area as well, who knows structurally how it might affect the car.

You could cut out the part that is rusted, cut out the piece of the new quarter panel that you need, and replace only that part. That is what I plan to do.

Im planning on replacing the whole bit as many have done before. Body panels that are welded back in probably don't cause structural rigidity problems. And I am not replacing the quarter panel because of rust, its just dented in bad.
Wouldn't it just be easier to weld the whole thing in anyway?

We have used the panels through BTDT on a few customer cars at work, they are legit. Pretty sure I remember them being cheaper than tri-pro in the end with shipping.

I'm glad someone is making these. I used some patch sections from Panic Motorsports but my inner panels were pretty badly rusted as well.

BTDT's pannels are legit! i bought them and finally just got them on my car. I just cut out the portions that i needed and welded them in. Thier fit was perfect and they are very good quality.
Just my experience,
Mike
also i have pictures i can upload of what i did.

Racing Beat also makes the lower section as a flair and it's fiberglass.
