Default 1961 Wheelhouse

I have some serious rust issues in the front wheelhouses on my 1961 Thunderbird, it`s the same in both sides.

I beleive I have to make them myself, but can someone help with some detailed pictures from an original car in good shape?
Also if possible some measurements for the different dimensions.

That's some serious rust. My 64 was bad, and I think that the chassis is identical. Here's what mine looks like, and I had to patch the front portion of it years ago. I don't have those bolts. Perhaps they are from an earlier attempt at repair?

Not sure what the deal is today, but those photos had to be shrunk down to tiny before they would upload. I'm afraid that the second one is near useless.

In any event, the box shape is open at the rear side.
