    Re: Repair or Replace Body Panels

    You'll be much better off with an expertly repaired rear quarter than a replacement. A good body man can straighten the metal to nearly original shape, requiring very minimal amounts of filler, usually just enough to give a "finish coat" before priming. Tools have greatly improved, with dent pullers that tack weld onto areas to facilitate outward pulling without having to get behind damaged area to "hammer out" a dent. He'll be able to blend paint work in at door jams to the point where only the scrutiny of a well trained eye could spot the repair, if at all. I agree with you regarding the replacement of bolt on fenders. Just find the right shop for the job.

    Re: Repair or Replace Body Panels

    Can you provide some pics/info about the extend of damage on the rear panel? Albeit possibly less complicated to replace it is one of the worst parts of the car to be exchanged. If the amount of damage is comparatively small, consider the other option.

    After all, who does pay for the damage? Might have to take that into consideration as well?
