Jeremy,
Sorry to hear your ‘17 Mustang was damaged and the problems you’re having with the back ordered quarter panel. Is your body shop ordering through a Ford dealer? If ordered on a normal stock order there is normally a 3-4 Depot referral process before Ford stops and places a part on backorder. A lot depends on your location in Texas and what Ford considers Your “Facing” Depot (The first and main parts supplier for your dealer). Unless a brand new just released model, the majority of the depots stock most fast moving sheet metal (F 150, Mustang, etc). If back-ordered or not stocked at that location, then the stock ordered part is referred to the next 2-3 closest depots. If there is no stock at those locations then the process stops. My sources show stock on the right quarter panel (FR3Z-6327840–A) at the Sacramento HVC (High Velocity Center) and Detroit HVC. The dealer would have to upgrade the order to receive the referral process that searches all depots until the part is located. I know a lot of people hate anything that involves any interaction with a car dealer (A reputation many of them have worked hard to deserve)! But if your dealer is a reputable one, then they should do what it takes to satisfy you and not lose a sale.
I checked my brothers 2018 Mustang and it is all steel metal except the front fenders and hood. There is an outer door skin available but with all the old school body men retiring or already gone, most of the new age parts hangers prefer the door shell. I went through that when the passenger door on my ‘18 F 150 was damaged by someone backing a trailer up. Body shop said it would be easier for them to transfer all the glass, latches etc, to a new door shell than to find one of the “New Age” body men that could handle removing and installing a new skin!
If for some strange reason there is still a problem with tracking your quarter panel down let me know and maybe I can help you find something in your state.

Now there is a man that knows his Ford parts business. Our local dealer use to be the best. They were the local center for all the NASCAR stuff and would get you about anything you wanted. I got the last NOS 65 fastback trunk lid to fix a friends T-5 there.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Hello Jeremy,
Just checking in to see if there has been any progress on your quarter panel. Unless there was a QC hold which resulted in a stop-sale condition the panel should have shipped. My sources show Detroit HVC inventory is now at 80 and Sacramento at 26. Hopefully, the decreased inventory numbers mean there is one heading your way! 
Fingers crossed!      Smile

I didn’t hear from them yesterday. I need to follow up today because while certain parts are off the car, I’d like to perform a few upgrades (ex. Sequential blinkers in the front).

Thanks for the support.

They finally got the 1/4 on Thursday and it wasn’t damaged like the first one. Now they can finally get down to work. When all is said and done, the car will have been off the road for 3 months. Thank goodness I have a backup vehicle.
