Repair panel - B pillar inner non cargo door side

Hi

I'm in need of a long/high inner repair panel for the inner B pillar - non cargo door side.

Pretty sure that I have seen this repair panel on a website but unable to locate. Any ideas if they are available and if so who might supply one?

On a slightly more productive front I have made a body trolley and roller (final touches needed). Plasma cutting 6mm plates to bolt to the torsion tubes and front beam mounting points. http://i949....
