Default roadster rear quarter panels help, please

Howell's makes front quarter panels, but does not make rear quarter panels for my 1925 roadster. It has been suggested that post-war bulbous Chevrolets may have curves and shapes that can help replace rusted sections of the "hip" area of the rear quarters. Do any of you have experience and/or suggestions to help? Thank you in advance.

Down here in NZ A UK TK Bedford hood is very popular to replace the Roadster 1/4 ,I think the Chev being a GM connection will have the same curves

I was able to replace the rusted section of the rear quarter on my coupe by myself, with no bodywork experience, with help from a friend with some experience and tools: shrinker, stretcher and English wheel. Maybe you have a friend or a place where you can get some help to do this?
