Mk1 wing arches?

Hi guys,
I have my panel beater sorted, we were just chatting about some things and were thinking that my front flared arches may be compromised because of the way there were rolled and working on rolling them back may soften the metal too much?
How come the rear sections are easily found but no-one seems to manufacture the fronts? Maybe because the rear arches rust out more often?
Is there anywhere else I can look for front wings to sacrifice for the arches?  or just the arches themselves?
 
Cheers for any guidance.

    Hi mate
    I reckon that your best option would be to take the guards to a coach builder.  It would be a simple job for them.

    Only place that do anything front guard related in steel is Ex-Pressed panels in the UK.  They now do a slab side of the front wing in standard or RS, at a good price.  https://www.steelpanels.co.uk/products/ford/rh-front-half-wing-m1e40/

    Thanks guys, I have a quote back from Ex-pressed. This is probably what I will have to do.
