Suggestions on rear quarter panel repair needed.

I received a nice parking lot gift last night. I left the truck parked well away from any other vehicles as I have always done and come out to this...

It slightly bent the crossmember in towards the wheel, the bumperette appears to have taken the hit as it has marks on it, and is bent at the rear weld..it appears the damage to the quarter panel occured due to the rear of the truck being pushed back and it gave in this manner. Other damage is the rear capping that runs vertically along the rear behind the lights and wraps around the side of the quarter panel. This along with the rear lamp, and the kbx housing is cracked.

Anyway...Any guestimates on what it will take to repair this? Does the damage warrant a new quarter panel or in your opinions...can this be fixed by a decent body shop?

Thanks,

Funtogun

OUCH. Dude that sux...sorry. Aluminum is quite easy to work with, but pulling it isn't an option as you can do more harm than good. Given the value of your truck I would suggest going off insurance (gets reported) and go to a body shop, they will have an idea. That isn't a home job fix.

I found a new factory1994 rear quarter panel..I figured the rear capping thing can be repaired. I guess if I did that..then it's a matter of fixing the cross member and lighting repaired..along with spray...and if I have to do all of that...then a total rear spray will be necessary...

Anybody have any idea on how difficult it is to replace that rear QP?

Oh..and who makes a rear bumper that doesn't just fold up like a soda can? I would like to avoid this in the future.

Too distracted by how clean your rear cross is. Sorry.

That is a crazy hard hit for a parking lot. I would have to believe someone wasn't parking when they hit your truck that was parked. That is awful, people are such idiots. I would agree this is an expensive hit so go through your insurance since you have it. And be sure it gets done at a good shop.

I thought the same thing. They knocked it pretty good. My truck was in 1st gear no brake on...rolled about 10" forward to the curb.

Anyway...I'm taking it to a body shop tomorrow AM. Will post the results.

Not a single part outside of the broken lens of my tail light was on the ground. The bumperette has a good size gouge out of it though.

If it was in a parking lot are there any surveillance cameras that might have gotten video of it? Someone hit your 90 pretty damn hard for a dent like that.

They have cameras..but not out in the back of the lot where I was parked. Checked with the business across the street to see if they had a different angle. No luck.

Did you end up hammering the dent out? Or a new panel all together?

Panel was repaired along with the rear corner capping.

Just this one pic of the fender in primer..and those posted above.

I have quite a few of the truck disassembled and in various stages of being put back together.

Overall, I am very pleased with the way it turned out.
