Rear driver side quarter panel damage,Best fix?

The old owner wrecked into another vehicle right above the wheel well,and theres also various scratches from that point and back
Any ideas on how to fix it? Bondo with fiberglass? Or Just cut out another quarter panel from a trans am
Thanks!

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.

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.
