Need pics. Quarters aren't easy to install. You can do a lot of straightening in same amount of time.

Repair it. I can have that ready for paint in less than 8 hours. You may have some damage on the rear of that door as well. BTW Nice car. Take care of it and fix it or get it done right.

Re: Rear driver side quarter panel damage,Best fix?

That's what I do every day. Speed comes from practice. 30 years of practice. You should be able to find a decent shop in your area that would repair that for that time. Find one that is into sports/muscle cars. They may give you a better price just for your same interests. Maybe a local car club as affiliation with a shop. Times are hard so most shops aren't that busy. Only bad part of that job is there is no break point for paint. Shop around a little if you're going to get someone to repair it.
