Body shop for rear quarter.

Long story short a camaro hit me on the driver side rear quarter and door. Really want my baby repaired correctly. Any good recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Iím located in the Pomona area.

Wow.
Honestly I think any insurance would total it at that point.
The repair cost alone is worth more than the car.

If it's drive-able take it to a few body shops. Expect a large quote.

Replacing the quarter panel is incredibly labor intensive. Shop around, get quotes hope for the best, but expect it to be totaled. Personally, I'd prefer to get the insurance payout and get another car that hasn't been smashed up.

It wasn’t hit hard enough to hit the frame it’s just the outter panel that’s damaged. That’s my guess as to why it’s not totaled. The door surprisingly still open and closed fine and she drives straight. I removed the interior trim to check the frame. The rear quarter is honestly a repair I can do myself but a shop has to do it to satisfy insurance so just want to make sure I find a shop that does the job correctly.
