There are a couple things you could be talking about...so I picked the most likely.

Like these?



(Look under the mud... rofl )

I traced out the pattern using wax paper and cut the pattern from posterboard. I then went to a metal fab shop and had the panels made from diamond plate (don't remember the thickness, but I think it was 3/8"). They had to warp the metal some to fit the upper quarter panel, but the slots idea was mine, which allows the rear lamps to be seen from the side. Then I painted them flat black with Rustoleum followed by a good coating of Herculiner, then tapped holes in the panel to mount the panel with screws. It's taken several scrapes and has always bounced back without problems. Mr. Green
