    I couldn't find any a couple months ago. I ended up buying the whole rear side panel from classic enterprise as I couldn't get just the corner...they do sell just the bottom of the corner, but depends on how high up the repair goes...I plan to cover my repair work with the corner armor from warrior...

    For that patch, just take a piece of sheetmetal and bend it to form the radius. I think 4” pvc pipe is correct for the radius.

    Yep, I built one using a piece of 4 an 5/8 " od heavy pipe to form the sheet metal around. Used a piece of 16 gauge sheet metal. Took lots of hammering
    but it came out good. Lots stronger than the original. Mine was mangled from the bottom to one inch from the top lip. Looks like yours would be a lot easier as it is lots narrower.

    I think he's going to get some of those too, but we need to repair that sheetmetal first.

    Or you can Armor plate the entire back like I did.

    Beat to the punch. 18 ga. cold rolled sheet steel bent over 4" in PVC pipe. Works real well.
    For the bottom panels, I make a a hammer form. Make a pattern out of Card stock and transfer it to plywood.
    Sandwich the steel between two pieces of plywood and clamp them together. Add extra metal for the flange and hammer the edges slowly around keeping from folding over the metal on itself. Works Great. Look up hammer forming sheet metal.

    Lots of information on the web.
