Can a Body Shop Repair or Need to Replace?

Sorry if this is the wrong section but need some advice. Caught the bumper of some jackass's dilapidated F-150 this morning while back out of a parking space, where he left me less than a foot of clearance on my passenger side.

Taking it in tomorrow for estimates and will go through insurance. Just wondering if a decent shop could repair this or if they'll need to replace the entire panel which integrates into the body. Dammit! Thoughts?Click image for larger version

Shouldn't be an issue repairing that. It's not to bad to the point of needing replacement.

I see things like that all the time and they body shop that about 80% of the time but I guess anything could happen.

It has a bad crease in it, so I'm going to say replace.
I noticed in a thread that's in the 96-04 GT forum, titled "Mach 1 build" that the body shop that was working on that car just cut out the damaged section and welded in a new piece, leaving the rest of the quarter panel in place. Perhaps your car is a candidate for that type of repair.

Sorry that happened to you.


Was the truck badly damaged?
I love old F-series...

Got two reputable estimates today both coming in right around my deductible of $1K. Both can repair rather than replace. Could have been worse but live and learn. Thanks for the advice.
