if the body was dented in from the driver's door to the rear panel gas tank opener, how are the body shops going to handel this (a car ran a red light hit me from the side)?

will the whole car be repainted?
will the rear panel be replaced ?

thanks.

No, the whole car won't be painted and the whole panel will not be replaced.

They will most likely weld in a new section on the panel.

they use body pullers..its a simple tool...they will drill a small hole into ur panel and pull the body part out...some are good enough to where u cant tell....anywho bondo or some welding is done to fill in craters, uneven spots, and the hole drilled..then painting is done to finish it off

option two is they buy you a new 1/4 panel and cut ur old one out and mate the donor/new panel to ur car (depreciates the vehicle value more)
