Well, I'm disappointed that they don't offer the front of rear quarter patch to fit '55/56 Ford 4-dr cars and wagons.
EMS does have some nice looking stuff if money is no object. I elected to buy the cheaper competitors panels and had to cut and bend as needed to fit and also had to make my own seam flange all across the top. Saved a lot of money but costed a lot of extra time.
They ought to think about making a patch for the lower outer portion of the rear wheelwell too as it is often completely desintigrated on these cars. You wouldn't believe how much time and effort and extra welding it takes to fabricate this in your garage using mostly crude tools.
It appears EMS panels would fit well without a lot of extra trouble like you have with the competitors and the EMS floor panels have every detail of the original factory panels. I'm sure someone interested in a quality restoration who wants to maintain that factory look would be very interested in the EMS products.
But then, you got guys like me who just want to cut out the rust and replace with new steel to keep water from going where it is not supposed to go

I have found the EMS panels to be extraordinary with respect to fit. When doing complete floor and structure repairs it is so NICE to have the panel literally fall into place. The rockers for my 57 Ranchero fit up like they were NOS. The floor pans dropped into place with the body mount holes lining up perfectly. When it was finish welded the alignment tape I had on both doors remained perfectly aligned.

Yup they cost more then some other stuff but having to "mess" with the other stuff only adds to the frustration level! I'll spend a couple of extra bucks.
