AfterMarket Repair Panels

I have a 2000MY SLK320. The both rear quarter panels wheel arches are rusting, a common problem I believe. They have been resprayed previously.

My local bodyshop has suggested replacement with some repair panels. i.e. cut out rusted sections and weld in repair panels, fill and repaint.

He gave me a great price, if we could locate said repair panels. I have search without luck.

Does anybody have any suggestions on where I could get some or any other solutions?

Thank You

try calling local junkyards. I've had bad luck with online junkyards. They frequently way overestimate the condition of their parts. or someplace like this:
