Source for salvage 70s end segment

Would anyone know a source for a used streetside lower front segment from a 70s trailer? The PO replaced this panel with a non-Alclad factory panel (which he dented anyway) that will not polish like the rest of the trailer. Thanks

Thanks for the Ebay reference I will check into that. I believe the panel from Out-of-Doors Mart will be in the same non-polishable finish as a new trailer. Why doesn't the factory run some 2024 through the presses for the vintage market?

New segment material will polish up the same as the old material.

2024T3 cannoit be stretch formed to make segments or quarter panels.

Thanks for the link to Out of Doors Mart's panels. I didn't realize that panels were so reasonably priced. I do realize that the labor involved is extensive, but maybe someday a new front cap is in the future of my Excella.
