Merry Christmas to everyone and thanks for all the great info.

Been that route if you're talking about your '67 newport.  In a word: Nope! 
The good news is that it's not called a "slabside" for nothing.  Good old 18ga from the body shop supply house will do it.


 
Merry Christmas to you & Debby.

No repop metal,my friend.
Just follow the "Barge on a Budget" thread for my experiences in fabricating panels for my '68 Newport.
I used  a shrinker/stretcher,bead roller,my neighbours fence,old exhaust pipe and the left front fender to bend the metal into shape!!
My trunk works great as a bench-and yes I did use up all of  two of 4X4 sheets of 20 guage metal!!
Went through 3 bottles gas,3 spools of wire and two tips on the vintage spot welder.Countless number of slag burns,grinding discs and burnt workclothes...Oh and plenty of beer!!

I have a left rear alledgedly for a 67 Fury.  But it's curved for a 67 Chrysler.  You can have that one real cheap if you want it.  I just want to get rid of it

Cbarge... I'll definatly take a look at your thread. I've always done the mechanical stuff, this is my first attempt at body work so I lack all the tools and knowledge.
 
Polarco...I'll keep the fender offer in mind for the left side.  I hate to hack up a good fender just to use the bottom 4 inches, but it may be an offer I can't refuse.

Steve, talked to my daughter today and will be seeing her in late Jan or early Feb if you can wait until then. Can you send me a pic of the fender? The part I am most interested in is behind the wheel at the bottom where they all rust out. Thanks

Yer wish is my command
 
I couldn't get back far enough to get the whole thing so I took 2 pics and matched them together.
 
If you just want a piece of this, I can cut plasma it off.  I would love to get this thing out of here. . . .  I don't want to handle it much

See Lea's pics above, that's what my fender looks like. For some reason I'm not able to post a pic.
