Salvage rebuild, 1994 e36

Hello all, I recently purchased a 1994 325i sedan that has a salvage title. It was hit in the driver side rear. I got it cheap and it only has 156k, it's very clean and 100% original.

I plan on doing a few upgrades but for now I just need to get it inspected, I pulled the trunk pan and quarter back into shape, Bought a set of tail lights off of ebay, and I picked up a complete bumper/cover/shocks. I have enough to get it to pass inspection but the rear filler piece ( I think its called a vallance) is in bad shape, it was smashed flat under the tail light. And the quarter requires some more work too.

My question is: Where can I buy new sheet metal parts for a bmw? I'd like to replace the rear piece that fills in between the bumper and trunk deck/tail lights, and possibly the driver side rear quarter panel.

Head over to PelicanParts.com. They carry tons of OEM parts and should have the peice you need. As for the quarter panels you should try eBay or local classifieds. Pelican Parts lists them at $371 each side. Find a guy parting out a similar car and you could get them for a lot cheaper.

It's already been pulled on a frame straightener, the quarter popped out pretty good. I just need to hammer out two creases. I used a slide hammer on the rear filler panel but it's gone. I'll have to take some pics of it pulled out, it looks much better now.

Ouch. That looks bad. Poor quarter panel. I saw a guys E36 get written off because the spare tire well was damaged. Apperantly the cost of fixing it was ridiculous.

The tire well is fine but there was some trunk floor damage, it all pulled right out though. This is pretty bad but I think I can get it back together with some custom exterior mods for under $2k. I going to order a spoiler, front bumper cover, headlights, fog lights, side skirts, and rear diffuser.

here it is after being pulled out.

Looks a lot better after being pulled. Still needs some TLC though. we look forward to seeing a build thread in the future.
