Man, that looks so much like the damage my car's got... Happened just last week, too. Of course mine is worse, since it appears that i was hit by a truck, a big one. My car was parked and i didnt see when it happened, and unfortunately for me and my budget it was a hit and run, and i had not upgraded my insurance to complete coverage (i was 2 days away from doing it, blah.) so it wont cover the damage.
Im a newbie to cars... and much more to the terminology in english... (im from mexico city). Im assuming the quarter panel is the one posterior to the door, am i right?
Im not too knowledgeable, you might need a new door, but maybe you can just take it to have the dent pushed out... But since the door is a complicated system by itself, i wouldnt know if that would be the best.
Raybroadway, what do you mean by 'sectioning the panel'?
For me, im definitely going to need a new door... And i was told the best way to go was to replace the quarter panel and the piece behind the front wheel (what is that one called?) You can see the damage
Any suggestions for BlackCat might also work for me...
