you can replace the whole quarter panel? the ones in the back? unless u plan on cutting the old rusty one out and then welding the new piece in. or are u talking about replacing the front fenders? i do body work. so this is something you do for a living right? so this is business as usual for u. but some of these guys are not auto body repair men who dont do body work for a living but willing to take a shot at fixing their own car. but if i were you, i wouldnt recommend a noob or someone with out any experience in body work, to replace the entire rear quarter panel.

for those who dont know how to do body work, hire someone who does. yea its expensive. if u cant afford it, save up for it. i have rust right above where the quarter panel meets the rear bumper cover at the wheel well. ive thought about doing it myself but i know it wont come out right. so thats what stops me from doing it. im saving up to hire a person who knows what to do and have them do it right..the first time. it will cost even more if he has to come in and not only have to fix what i tried fixing, but also un-fukcing my fukc up.
