    Check out Auto Metal Direct.
    The quarters are available for '72 and newer, so you'll have to change the marker light holes, but not a big deal.
    The fenders are available.
    The rear tail light panel is available for your car with no modifications.
    Did you mean trunk lid or trunk floor?
    The trunk lid isn't available, but the trunk floor is.
    The parts are kind of expensive, but they are the best you can get and fit well.

    As for shipping, maybe find a dealer near you and they should give you a break on the shipping if you buy all of the parts at once. (use the AMD dealer locator close to you on the internet) or contact Summit or Jeg's and they might give you free shipping.

    Good luck on your project, here's a link to their web site.

        I got a price of 2900 rounded off with shipping
        I was looking for the tail light panel and yes you are correct sir they dont do quarter panel for 71. Do you know if anyone that supplies the original spec quarter panels

        Changing the side marker lights is not a hard thing to do for a decent body man, you just need to salvage the old ones that are on your car making sure that you measure the factory location of them and then transferring them on.
        You'll not find a Quarter that fits as good as the AMD one does, as a matter of fact, Goodmark makes a quarter skin for your car, but it isn't even close to the fitment of a AMD part. And it's just a skin.
        If you only need a skin, I would still go with the AMD full panel and cut it down.
        You will save money in the long run.
        Goodmark panels are better than nothing, but the lines aren't very crisp or exactly in the right place like AMD ones are.
        Goodmark panels are okay for patches or someone ''fixing up'' a car but not restoring it.
        AMD panels are stamped from slightly thicker steel as well, (if that matters to you).
        You are paying for quality IMHO when you go AMD panels, but it's your choice what you expect out of the car when it's finished.........
        Are you doing the work yourself, or are you paying someone to do it?
        If you are paying someone to do the car, then time adds up using badly fitting panels that take a lot of modifications as opposed to good panels that only take a little modification.

        It's up to you what you decide to do.........

            Glad I could help.
            Post some pictures of it in progress, maybe start a build thread here in the ''Member's Restorations'' section.

                Good choice on buying the parts from AMD. :thumbsup:

                The idea of finding a solid Duster down in the desert and shipping it to the Northeast would likely be at least double if not triple the price of buying new metal and shipping only the new metal parts to the northeast. Plus stripping the non needed parts from the Duster and selling it would be a second project when the goal is getting your Duster restored. Then there’s also the space considerations for storing that parts Duster somewhere until it’s gone.....

                  That would kill of yet another classic car.

                  Bad plan.
