Estimate on 2004 Mustang body repair?

I found this car online and was interested in buying. I live in Minnesota, twin cities area. What would you estimate the cost of this repair to be at?

Thank you

It needs a new quarter panel. That one is completely shot. It likely also needs to go on a frame rack to look for any signs of distortion in the rear sub frame, as well as the body itself. It isn't hard to warp a unibody.

There are also other parts needed, and possibly some that need repair.

It is hard to give an estimate from a single photo. However, if I had to guess, I would say you have a $3500-$4000 repair on your hands after labor and materials.

I would say only about $100.00....in Bondo. Seriously though you really need to check for other problems besides the QP as stated above. These are usually only a good deal if you can do the work yourself or a GOOD friend.

Well... any competent shop can fix that, but it won't be cheap as was already said. And the unibody could be tweaked. I'd take that pic to a few shops and see what they say. But unless you are getting that car for under $1k I'd pass and even then... that's a parts car candidate or a drive as is candidate if it still drives straight.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

Auto collision is my career and iv been in the business since I could work. From the basic pictures you have put up I can't see all the damage but I can tell you that the repairs would be 2000 and up definitely. I'm not saying it's a total loss car but it is going to take a shop a month or so to fix unless there only job is your car. Great deal if you have someone close to do the repairs instead of going to a shop
