Cab Corner Patch Replacement Disaster, NEED HELP ASAP

OK Guys I finally managed to do my cab corner and I bought a factory replacement panel for Key Automotive, Patch panel looked like it would fit like a glove. We traced out what we were gonna use and cut the rusty cab corner out, so we went to put the new panel and and IT DOES NOT FIT

All molding's in are right but the the demension of it are wrong. Specifically the rear of the cab, I'll get pics up a few.

1) Has anyone had this problem

2) Has anyone bought one of these panel so I know where to exactly get one to Fit!

I will try to contact Key auto asap so I can hopefully get my $65 back.

THanks EVERYONE

it looks like you have an extended cab, or super cab, and the patch you cut out for is for a quad cab. If you have an ext. cab this is what you should have gotten. AUTOBODY SPECIALTIES INC. - F803LSUPERDUTYCABCORNERSUPERCAB

That panel might work but if you see how I cut mine I cut it out with the door and everything too.

Here's the panel I bought see one piece (off course i would have taken a bunch off the top)



But heres the two panel that I would need Im just not 100% I can make them fill in everything I cut out. We are pretty good with metal I think If i buy both of these I can make them work, any imput? All is appreciated.






WHY DOES NOBODY MAKE A BODY PANEL LIKE I NEED THO

I really doubt it, I've never really seen a super duty in the junk yard up here. I think If i bought those 2 panels I think I can make them work.
