Default Supra Stock Body Panels

I`m in the process of refurbishing the rear end of the Supra. I`ve dropped the rear sub-frame out & stripped it down, shot basted and powdered coated, replaced all the bushes and itís already to be go back in. Before I proceed I would like to weld in new rear wings due to the rusty wheel arches. Unfortunately these are not available from Toyota UK anymore, are they available in the US ? Part # 61602-1B916 & 61601-1B915 (item 61612 in pic)these are the whole quarter section of the rear wing. I intended cutting most of the wheel arch out and welding it in. Appreciate any recommendations.

Is that supposed to be 61601-1B916 and 61602-1B916? Looks like they may be available in the States still. They run a lovely $615 from one of the vendors I often go through... I suspect finding a shop willing to ship them may be tough though. Otherwise I think you're going to find yourself looking for donors.

Thanks cre, the part #`s are for a UK model, I think the US would have a cut-out for the side repeaters, hence the different part #`s. I have 2 options: find a similar body panel from another car manufacture and modify it, or ask someone in the states to buy the body panels, cut them down to a reasonable package size (as I only need the wheel arch part and a little bit more) and ship them to UK. That price works out to be GBP 388 at today exchange rate, which is a good price considering the size of the panel.

Sorry to be digging up an old tread but does anyone know were I can source the following for a Supra MK3:
6140114100, 6140214100, 616011B915 and 616021B916 - that is both sills and both quarter panels.

I have been searching for the last three months but no luck.

Places I've tried:
Japan - but I have only one contact so far - maybe someone else has a good contact?
EU - Ireland and Germany
US
Australia

Thank you for any help ...

I didnít have much luck myself, ended up welding in patches and using body filler. I did use the fax contact below in search of the Toyota repair manuals and received a response, which was about 12 years ago though.
