cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

Soo was doing some "repairs" on my stock bumper that I bent the other night and when I took my bumper cap off on the driver side I accidently put a hole in my rear quarter panel. it is rusted clear through the inside and outside portion that you would usually fold up. so I was doing some digging and found these:

does anyone have any experience with these?
If so put up some pictures, how you installed them and pros and cons?
Thank you.

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

I don't know why you'd buy those. Cut and fold the sheetmetal already there, and rivet it fast. Might cost you a pair of av shears and some pop rivets. Or go hightech and JB Weld it.

Not the cheapest but it's probably better than what you have. If you can weld tho a sheet of 16gauge is a lot cheaper but it'll be more time consuming.

A photo or two, on the vendor's site, showing what they look like installed would be nice, they might even sell more of them.
It's not real obvious where the new pieces bolt in.

or no one is buying them and they don't keep them in stock -- Need 2 weeks to motivate someone in the shop to bend them up...


I'm doing the same thing right now on a 2000 -- I just wish photobucket didn't destroy the internet -- Finding a thread on how and where to cut and fold with actual,working pictures is proving to be a challenge

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

Those look well designed and built. For people with rusty fenders they will likely make the job easier. $99 bucks is good price for what you get. Keep in mind that having to fit XJ parts to an XJ is nothing unusual.

That was my thought. if I was able to upload a picture I would but interior and exterior portion of my rear quarter is gone.

Re: cut and weld... I mean cut nd fold

Hmm...

I have been mulling over ideas for mounting an air compressor inside the rear quarter panel. These could be just the ticket.
