You will have to call around. It depends on the shop's labor rates and what pricing they can get the replacement parts at. Seeing as you will need a new side scoop.

Also, sometimes little shops will charge less then places like Ford. So that is a factor also. My wife had a 2000 V6 Mustang and a damage similar was around 500-600. But that was from a small local body shop.

I did not see those dents in the back near the tail light. Yea it could be possibly over $1000. Best to call around.

I got hit right above the rear wheel (drivers side) kinda scraped the wheel too. I was estimated between 1600-2000. I have a 02 gt vert.
This quote was for painting quarter panel, scoop and bumper.

When I get a chance I'll post a pic.

That's quite a it of labor to get that quarter panel back. If they can even get it where it needs to be. I'd estimate 10 hrs labor easy. I used to be a body guy at a shop a while back.

Its gonna have to be pulled to. Also the dent on the rear panel is welded soooo.

I may just leave it. But it is such an eye sore.

Yea, I mentioned about 600 before I saw the damage near the rear part of the quarter panel. They might end up replacing it if they the repairs/labor would cost more then replacing the quarter panel itself.

Well get some quotes but its not exactly going to hurt anything to leave it as is if you had to or its not worth the $$$ to fix it. It just looks bad.

Body damage estimate

Fix it. You will hate driving the car with damage like that...

I can't tell from the pic, but are the tail lights damaged? If so I've got a set of stock ones and tinted ones I'd let go of for a decent price.

This is my damage. Really not that much about a foot and a half long and it was estimated from 3 places from 1600-2000.

If you're any good with a welder and body work I'd find a junk car with a quarter and cut out the places you have dents, weld in the new pieces, grind it down and use a little bondo with some sanding blocks. I just did that to my mine under the gas cap all the way down an you can't even tell. Save you ALOT of money if you have a solid day or two to do it.

I don't know what I was saying under the gas cap for I had to replace right where your dent is but a bit bigger where the fender curves. Really not that hard either.

Wtf that should be no where near 1500. Maybe 800 with labor if they don't try to nickel and dine you
