Need picture of 66 Imp. rear wheelwell

So, you guys have seen my rust buckety Ebay Special. I've been honing my welding skills on it and so far I'm pleased with the results.

I'm at a tricky area now though. Right where the 2 wheel-well halves meet the trunk, the cross-member bracing,..and the quarter-panel and even the small trunk down piece to close up the area behind the lower, rear quarter panel and up to the bottem of the trunk pan.

SO,.... I've cut & welded about 4 new pieces in that area, but I cannot create the new piece for the wheel-well because I have nothing to go on!

I need a picture of the wheel-well area, right where the tire is,...but facing the rear. I'll try to attach a picture....
Nont making a show car here, just want to get something created that looks close to original.

Just checked out your blog. Looking good! What's your engine combo going to be? You may have already mentioned it, but I am blind sometimes!
