New member, here. Thanks, in advance for any advice you guys can offer-up. Here's the skinny...

74 SB...rear/right (passenger side) damage, from rear-end collision. Upon tear-down, noticed that primary failure was due in part to previous rust damage. Check out the photos...
Before ordering any parts/panels, I would like to make sure I'm getting the right thing. Even though main damage was to right side, I am planning on replacing BOTH sides, as there is rust damage visible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have been replacing all four of the panels on my 74 that the bumper supports attach to. Since I could not find them for my year I have been using 73 panels. Then I plan to use euro blades to replace my 74 bumpers

FAST is good CONTROL is better
