73-87 wheel tub extension?

Looking for the approx 8 by 10 inch square piece of sheet metal that bolts to the bottom rear of the wheel tub and the reinforcing arch at the rear lower panel,, any sources other than salvage yard? Hard to fabricate due to the wheel tub being flanged where this attaches. See attached pic.

Re: 73-87 wheel tub extension?

I have asked about these before on the forum. Have been told it was a real early item that was dropped after a few years. (please correct me if I'm wrong)

I am also interested in a source, if there is one.

I would also like to find a set to use as a pattern.

Oh wow....thanks for the heads-up! I assume they'll fit all fleetside squares, and that they list them for '73-'78 because those were the trucks originally equipped with them.
