A body shop could fix that up no pronlem. Why do you want a whole new quarter panel?

It's hard to tell from the pic but the damage to that quarter panel looks like it is repairable.
The quarter panel is not bolted to the body of the car... It is spot welded and is a pretty big job to replace.
One of my cars needs the drivers side replaced. I'm going to have a body shop do the work but I searched on the internet for a replacement and I couldn't find the quarter panel either. The body shop assured me that a factory replacement is available from Ford.

this is a front fender. goes in about 8". pulled and fixed painted in about 5 hrs. if it was on a rear qtr and wanted the whole qtr replaced it would be about 20hrs at least

Hard to tell but see where the quarter panel is suppose to be? Well it has a dent in that spot, plus the other place where I showed you guys earlier.

So my best bet is to just go to a shop and them fix that whole thing?....

bring it to a good shop. they will be able to pull anything back in to place, install a new light, and panel the qtr. being a little older they might have to blend the color into the rear bumper. its very fixable

I plan on fully restoring this car before I mod it. I want this car looking good. You know how much it will be??? Any idea?

No, prices vary from area to area. go to a few places and get some estimates. it will be cheaper then replacing the whole qtr, and replacing the whole qtr can lead to more issues done the road. ei: spot welds rusting.

The quarter panel is that whole piece from the back of the door to the tail light, I think that you are referring to the side scoop.
Yes. I can see by that other photo that the quarter panel is pushed WAY out of shape! It's almost as if someone has already pulled it out as best as they could.
Go to a body shop (Or a couple) and have them assess the damage.
The quarter panel on my car is going to be around $3,000 to repair.

Yep. And that was the low estimate.
I'm going to do most of the disassembly and reassembly myself so hopefully I can get it done for less.
The only reason that I'm going to repair the car is that it is a clean titled, True Blue Bullitt that I got a good enough deal on where I can easily have all of the damage repaired and still not be "upside down" on the car.

Yeah it seems to have anything done anymore will cost you at least 1500. Have to make it worth their while.

Go to a junk yard and get one off a wrecked car if it's in tact. Then just send it in for paint and swap it out yourself.

Haha.
Travis could do that!

Most of us who aren't being paid to do that kind of work find that it is very tedious and frustrating... Rather quickly!
I watched some videos on replacing the quarter panel, and actually went and looked at one being replaced. Its doable, but like dino said, its going to take a hell of a lot of time. And I'd rather not spend my time learning a skill that I'll, hopefully, never use again... Not at my age, anyway! lol.


There are some options though, Joe. You could work out a deal with a body shop where you remove as many parts as you can (ie. Interior/exterior parts) and just have them do the body work and paint, and then you do the final assembly.
If you have the time, and there is a community college in your area that has a automotive/body repair program, you might consider taking a class and doing the repair there, if they will let you work on your own car.

Go shop around for some estimates at local body shops. Like dino said, prices can vary regionally. Just try to find shops that do quality work!

i know they keyed my new 2014 and i left it that way. it still works and gets me around its just a cosmetic thing plus if im going to pay anything over 1500 ima wait till it completely needs to be replaced so if your bumper or quarter panel stays on and isn't scrapping floor you might find out you notice the bent quarter panel less than you would notice 3000.00 dollars missing from your young high school wallet which i know is not easy just got over about the same thing bro.

Dude exactly, I don't like looking at it but it looks good other than that spot. And engine and transmission runs fine. I'm not even gonna worry about it until it has to be replaced๐Ÿ˜Š

In the meantime keep your eye out for a doner panel, Craigslist, junkyards etc. Maybe even get lucky and find one the same color.

Its going to need paintwork regardless, I'd just go find a clean donor piece off of one of the bazillion JY cars and go with that. Any model will work.
