Has anyone managed to find a pre fabricated wheel well. Some of us just do not have the time or patience to be fabricating our own!

Looking for replacements for 66' Caravel. FLIMSY plastic.

Dang, I just saw the post above mine. Finally, I have found a source! But dang expensive.

I did get mine at a local HVAC shop. It was the need of a Pittsburg seam or a Z seam to be effective. The only problem I ran into is the flange the is used to attach the well to the trailer shell was a considerable smaller side than the original. It worked out just fine and the buck riveting was not a problem. Tight but still functional.
