I was just hit in the right rear wheel well while turning left. The only reputable body place I know of is saying it will be $750 to hammer out the dents on the panel and then the painting. This does not include either the wheel or the tire. He said that estimate is for 7.5 hours of work. Does this sound reasonable? Sorry I dont have any pics yet, I will put some up tomorrow if anyone thinks that might help. Thanks for the advice!

I wish, like an idiot I switched down to just liability for the winter, thinking I wouldnt be taking it out at all. Of course the first day over 50 here in Cleveland I decide to go for a drive. Wouldnt buying the new quater panel then paying to have it welded on, then painted be alot mor than $750? I thought of going to a junk yard but the guy told me that would end up costing more to pull an old one off then reweld it.

but if someone hit you, and assuming its not your fault that you've been hit, then his insurance should take care of it.
