Decent Body Panels

Anyone have any suggestions on where to buy decent body repair panels for my CJ7? (1983). I've ordered one of them from JC Whitney to check the fit (rear pass. quarter panel) and it's not even close to the original geometry. It's too wide at the rear of the door opening and there isn't a single true 90degree bend on it.

Any advice or links would be appreciated.

I have ordered thousands of dollars in replacement parts, about 95% of them are substandard quality. The replacement windshield frame I bought didnt match up like the original but rust free. I would try a Jeep wrecker for the parts you need. Good old Jeep quality you can trust.

I got my side to rear panels from and they were perfect.

I got my corners (with the light holes) from quadratec.
I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?
