Hatch patch panels

Simple question, but is there anywhere I can find patch panels to repair the cancer on the underside of my hatch?

I planned on just making one, but figured if I could buy an already bent piece for a few bucks I would

They make cut-to-fit fiberglass that you can put bondo on top of and sand down smooth if you have a lot of rust.

Ill just make a patch panel out of steel probably.

All the junkyard around here want $150-250 for hatches in similar shape. Only few I've found that are perfect were $350+, and I would still need to paint them so I'd rather just fixthis one
