keep the pictures coming Dave. You might struggle to find any good rear guard sections i think.

New sections can be made, bit tedious of course. Resist the temptation to remove any metal there though until you have either another section to replace it with of have made a new part. It's much harder to make new sections if there is nothing there (ie removed) to make pattern from.

I will have to look in the roof on the weekend. I do have a rear section from the door back, but I think it may be the other side. I will have a look.

If you just need the rear section, behind the rear wheels, maybe a sedan one would do ??
I have had a rusty rear repaired using fibre glass before too. That was a very neat job.

guards..........

Dave i am going to get a quote to make a few L & R rear bottom sections. From lower lip probably up to about the bumper bar bolt holes.

is that enough for your car? Most are ok above that anyway

Davo, I reckon thet guard is no worse than most. This might be a task for a panel beater, but I reckon its less work to repair the rusty bit than replace the whole guard and get it all straight. Thats a lot of cutting and welding.

When I have replaced bits in the past I went to the tip, or a scrapper mate and looked a car bodies until I found a similar curviture on somethinf, then cut the bit out. But a panel beater could probably just beat a flat bit to shape.
Cheers, Matt.
