    Thought I would let you guys know about this shop. Go on FaceBook shops name. Real Steel Replacement. They reproduce sheet metal parts for 1953-1963 Chrysler Plymouth Dodge Desoto. Contact Ken 603 998 9983. Any sheet metal you need they either make it already or can reproduce it. Nice thing it's 18 gauge not that 2C2 20-22 gauge junk. I have been in contact with Ken about making my lower rear front fenders {Dog Legs} and inner rear fender support patches for my 62 880. I have some extra fenders I will be cutting apart to send to him to reproduce the patches. Some parts he already reproduces. He just hasn't done any of the 62 stuff yet. Any of you familiar with the 60-63 cars they trap moisture and dirt in the lower rear front fenders. And are always rusted out. Hope this helps and check him out or shoot him a call

    No doubt. Just scored a factory 2 coupe full quarter panel from a guy. Still has the mopar metal tag on it. Biggest problem with these cars is trunks and lower front fenders. But ken can make what you need. I spoke with him today about some stuff. He said what he dose is digitise the part and then he can go from there. I got a 4 door 880 with a pretty good trunk in it. I would like to remove it and get it to him to reproduce. He said even if the part is rusted bad if you can get it out intact he can make it.

    I have a 1/2 dollar size hole on drivers side rear quarter
    But haven't found anything else yet
    My problem is the hood hinges must have froze up and the previous owner forced the hood and bent it so it is a rusted mess so I need hood hinges and the trunk lid
    It rusted behind the chrome so 90 percent of that lip is gone

    Let me know if you need anything for them
    My plan is a 440 with dual quads which I have and probably not going to put all the chrome back on it
    Bunch of mechanical stuff
    Probably most of drive train etc

    Im in Tennessee close to Knoxville. No just the 2 door. Bought the 4 door for metal if needed. My 2 door is pretty solid. Except the trunk and a few spots on the rockers and of course the lower rear of the front fenders

    4 window cranks
    Speaker screen
    Dash pad
    Pass side rocker molding
    Hood hinges hood

    I also found out that the door panel skins peeled off and the backer boards look good.
    Now to get them off in one piece
