Rear quarter repair

Hi Folks , I'm sure someone will have asked before but I'll ask again anyway . 
Does anyone do a repair panel for the lower rear quarters on our cars ? I have a C4 with the dreaded tinworm in the usual place and was hoping I could get a repair panel to weld in myself ? 
Thanks in advance .

    A photo of the corrosion would be useful in gauging what was needed.
    However the parts catalogue shows only the full rear quarter panel or the box section that holds the rear lights.
    Unless you can find a good scrapped 964 or a garage who have fitted fibre glass panels then you'll have to get the parts from OPC and they won't be cheap.
    Are you sure they can't be repaired. A good bodyshop should be able to weld in a new panel section fabricated from sheet steel.

    I've just had the restoration of my C2 completed. I also had corrosion in front of the rear N/S wheel and above the light box. I searched everywhere for a repair panel as did the garage doing the work in the hope it would give a faster and accurate repair unfortunately, as per the diagram above they don't exist from Porsche or any other third parties. There is a rumour you can find them next to hens teeth hiding in rocking horse ****
    i ended up having the bodyshop make an excellent repair with new metal.

    Thanks for the reply's , I've bought the tail light box and  a Dansk rear quarter repair panel so along with finding a good panel beater to fabricate the rest of the corrosion I'm making progress and hope to have the car back on the road later this year , it's been nearly 4 years since I started the restoration !
