Well mates I went and bunged it up bad this time. I gotta say in 15 years of driving gtr’s the hicas plus some shitty rear tires almost cost me my life and my car for the first time.  2 weeks after having my r32 completely restored quarter panels off with all new trim and weather stripping 12k paint job I decided to go wreck my car and hit a couple hiway signs....cars almost fixed now but damn some dark days.... first pics are when had new paint and looking mint.

Now here’s the ugly....I consider myself lucky that it’s fixable but feels like I wrecked my car even when it’s gunna be fixed....one sad Canadian these days. Hopefully the boys and gals on here can pick a mates spirits back up. I will post pics when we finally get this ol girl back in action.....was going to slap another new rear quarter on there but didn’t want to go another 5k deep into just a panel. Let me know your thoughts of pounding it out and fixing it was a good idea. Car still straight as an arrow

This is not a fun time 😔 feel for ya mate, but you said it yourself a few pages back - its all just metal and you can't take it to the grave! 

 

My 2c on the fender repair - body filler will look terrible over time. If it doesn't crack, it will definitely at least shrink and cause distortions in the surface. The only way to fix that panel and have it last is to replace it.

I'm happy you chose to share. I can imagine how this would feel, I'd be absolutely gutted. I once lost the rear in an S13 and hit a post in the rear quarter. It wasn't huge but just horrible when you spend so much time keeping them clean and maintained. 

Good luck and keep us updated.

Happy to see you're ok mate. Sucks your latest post is bad news... Don't worry about the car it's repairable, I've seen way worse than that. Consider yourself lucky in a way. Keep us posted. 👊

Thanks buddy. My body shop will warrantee all the work they did and said it will be good as new. There is actually very little filler on the panel and It really does look good as new now. If it does get weird I will replace the panel as needed. Last time we replaced the quarter panel we had to remove the roof...any tricks on being able to replace that panel without roof removal? I’ve had a lot of guys say I’m crazy to want to replace that panel again. some guys say it’s a waste of time to fix the old panel, some say it is totally fixable. Seems like most the reputable body guys have told me it’s totally fixable and will last a long time if done correct with correct treatment on the inside of panel as well. I dunno I’m a newb when it comes to this body stuff just want it to look good so I can cruise again with my mates! Feel bad for what I did to such a awesome rust free car hut can’t keep beating myself up about it....will post when it’s finished see what you guys think. Cheers thanks for the support.

Couldn't tell you man, body work isn't my strong suit, maybe a few of the other guys can give you some tips but from the little I know that hit isn't that bad and I would believe the panel shop IF they do it properly it will last for years.
