The rear quarter could possibly be fixed and probably a new rear bar. You'd better pray the rails haven't been damaged..

I reckon you could get it done for $1000.. But you might need a new rear quarter..

Offer cash prices. And get at least 5 different quotes if you don't know much about smash repairs...

The best solution is to find an old school panel beater who can beat the thing straight and then use a minimal amount of filler to finish the job. I would go for that every time over welding in a new 1/4 as the joints are never as good as factory joins.

I can't tell from those photos if that 1/4 is repairable though.

thanks guys, i got quite a few quotes done, ranging from 1200 to 2500, so not so bad, if i claimed it on insurace it would be no point as my excess is 900 (tell me why we have insurance:????)
sum places wanted to replace the panel and most said it was fixable, i dont really want it replaced as said above joins not as good

but awe well will get her in next week and fix *pout*
