Yodamaster is cool... so far.
Any source for inner wheel housings?

I'm in the process of fixing the rust on my 91' Coupe, but I'm having a problem finding a replacement inner wheel tub for both sides. The factory part is NLA unless I want to pay $300 per, which is no bueno. I already have replacement outer panels, but those are the easy part...





Am I going to have to scavenge for replacements at yards? They're probably going to have the same problem...

If that's all the worse it is, just fashion some local patches. Otherwise, as you say, you'd need to scavenge from another car - or have someone down south here cut some out and send them to you. My 90 sedan was a lot worse; I was able to get both the outer and inner from a single car for $100 per side. The outer half of the wheel tub is part of a much larger piece. The thread below shows how I went about replacing the rusted part of mine.

I'm in the same boat. I'm going to weld the inside directly to the outside. In my opinion, this is much better than having two sheets on top of each other because there's no room for mud and moist to pile up and cause rust, again. Between two sheets is where rust starts, 99% of the time.

I decided to just wing it and fashion some patch panels myself, takes a lot of time to get them looking somewhat OEM instead of just slapping metal in. It's VERY difficult to weld in there without having the entire quarter panel off, not much room to maneuver the MIG torch. Temporarily mounted the bumper to check alignment, looks good!

You're lucky you still have the mounting points there. Many times, by the time you have significant rust above the bumper, that lower area is gone and the bumper is sagging.
