Nah, it kinda makes sense. They're very simple bolt together panels, but not very curvy. Loony's got Flap's old Landy, (series 3 maybe?), but I've never looked in the engine bay -is there some sort of framework to support the panels or are they self supporting?
There's a big Landover show somewhere in the Midlands isn't there? If all else fails, you must be able to buy repro parts.

new panels are easily purchased, which i think could be the way to go.

paddock spares one of the biggest companies.

I can see it. Transition tween front of doors and wing might take some work. Remember that original series Land rover panels aren't aluminium  but Birmabright BB2 or BB3, an alloy of aluminium, manganese and magnesium. So take more care to anneal before trying to reshape anything as it work hardens really easily.
