Yeah, buy the larger quarter panel repros and cut out what you need. No one sells just the arch as a patch panel. Alternately, cut what you need from a good parts car.

I'd shop around. Auto Body Specialties has them for $209 each. Also, there apparently now there is a patch panel for the area behind the rear wheel openings. Of course, it's a mere $189 vs. $209 for the larger panel. Go figure.

In my experience if the wheel openings are rusted really bad then you will also need to replace the outer wheel house and patch the rear lower section of the inner wheel house.
