Patch Panels

Hello All,

First post here! Recently acquired an '89 325i 2-door in need of some rust repair. Specific to the rear quarters I am inclined to replace just the arches rather than the full rear quarter due partly to skill level and partly to cost. Not including shipping, replacement arch is about $65 versus full quarter for about $400. I see Mill Supply.com has arches. Does anybody have experience with these or any other aftermarket arches? I know OEM quality is preferred but I figure if the arches don't work out due to quality or my novice bodywork skills I can then go to a full quarter.

Thanks!
