Anyone have a rough idea of how much it would run to have someone weld in a rear quarter panel on my e30 325is coupe? This would be welding only, I would paint/primer afterwards, pull the windows etc and supply the panel (sawzall time at crazy rays!) Only other thing would be to have the welds grinded down.

Basically part 16 from

there is no frame damage and this is a track car so looks aren't super important. The main problem is that my rear bumper doesn't fit the guide properly and with all of the crinkling, I really don't feel like pulling and banging out the dents.

Wouldn't you need part #1 for your coupe? (part 16 being the 4 door I guess).

Piper does very nice work.

What you need is a guy with a MIG welder for that. Or you need a tree to pull that out and bondo it.
