    In the words of Dr. McCoy....

    By the time you source another good quarter panel, fix it, etc you'd be much more ahead just finding another car with a decent body and swap your other parts.

    X2.I bought my car complete and running for $350.00 and took all of the parts from my other car to upgrade and repair.To fix the other car I had would've far exceeded the value,and that's just bodywork,not the lights,etc.Grab another body in good shape,start swapping your parts.
