Default Quarter Panel

I wrecked my car the other day and I would like to fix it. I have good experience with QP replacements. I cannot find any company that makes replacement QP besides oem Mazda. They want too much for the panel. Does anybody know a place that sell a complete QP?

Here's a pic of my Miata. It still driveable and what not.

I saw the ebay item. But I don't think it high enough. High enough where the belt molding under the ht will sit.

Junk yard is your best bet.

Either that ebay piece, and pound the top portion back into shape and make it work, or junk yard and cut one off.

What happened?

Oh, and +1 on junkyard fender. Or just go all out on a set of FULL flares (Not bolt-ons, full pannel replacements)

Here's my donor car. The qaurter panels seem like a lot of work to remove it from the car. :/

I have good experince with panels. But, I wonder how does it meet up where the hardtop Frankenstein bolt is?

That would be my route, I'm FAR too lazy to get into all of that mess. Beat it back 90% straight, or as best you can, then fill the rest.
