Rear Quarter Panel

Recently my 14" 451 was bumped into, and I need to replace the Driver side rear quarter panel. I contacted my dealership here in town, $150. Not too bad for a body panel, but i was hoping to find one a bit cheaper. All I've been able to find are $250 panels on Amazon and ebay, or complete body kits. Any other good sources?

$150 sounds good to me but I haven't looked them up. Will insurance help?

Like my insurance company told me: Only if the part comes to more than your deductible.

What about installation? If someone else did it then they should pay to have it installed. Just depends if you want to claim a small accident and risk increased rates.

How bad is the old panel? I really want to get a driver's side in bad condition to use for a form to do some blow down molded scoop ideas. Let me know if it's usable, and if we can work something out.
