I've seen worse quarter panels get fixed.
You'd be surprised what kinda dents they can pull out nowadays. :)
That may be true, but it depends on the sheetmetal guage, its condition, and if you want filler or a new panel. If that dent was on some Korean or Japanese tin can, I would guess "saving" it would be real tough. I know this from 26 years experience in the bodyshop biz.:) Of course your "friendly" "honest" insurance adjuster will tell you he "could fix in 2 hours!" UMMMMMMMMMMMMM, no.

A proper body shop can pull that out and fix it right with zero body filler.
My buddy's 2000 Trans Am was worse than that, and it was fixed, not replaced, and zero body filler.

Replacing a quarter panel on a 4th Gen is extremely expensive.
Don't ask how I know. lol

For the on-topic record:
One must be careful when taking a left turn out of the Stonybrook parkinglot onto Fern Valley/Hurstbourne Rd while the roads are wet. For even if one has 300+lbs of cinderblock in one's truckbed one's truck's rear-end can lose traction and thusly send one flying side-to-side in a vain effort of regaining control of one's vehicle. And one can feel one's heartbeat for some time afterwards.

It freaked me out, man. I was going normal speed on that turn. And I mean normal normal. Not "normal for me" which is cranking the wheel and hitting the gas as the rear end flies out and loud tire screeching is heard.


BTW, if you're ever back in Louisville, you can fix the rust spot on my truck mr. body-and-paint-man. :D

Fbodgrad I'm glad you didn't get hurt. That is why I have a 97 GMC Jimmy for a DD. Cause if my GTO got that kind of damage I'd be more than upset. Last week we had a big snow storm (today its in the 60s!!!) And I hit a corner/ light fast to miss the red and did a 540 spin(4wd doesn't work anymore) but hit my turn signal and saved it to make an unexpected turn on a conviently placed road right after the light. This winter has been bad in IL, seen some bad winter accidents/ deaths and even had someone take off my rv mirror with no other damage in a parking lot. I will continue to drive offensively (not the same as rudely or insanely). Wish everyone a safe and accident free 2008. And always wear your seat belt cause they do save lives. By habit I put mine on before I put my key in the ignition. My best habit!
