PostSubject: New here. Looking for body help   Sat Jun 09, 2012 3:32 pm

Whats up? I recently purchased a project DCM impala ss. That runs great, but in need of some real body help. It's a clean title with 107k. The rear passenger side quarter panel was swung into a tree stump while the previous owner was doing donuts. The rest of the body just needs some touching up. I've searched high and low for a replacement quarter. But I can't seem to find anything but the expensive stuff from yr one. I also got some crazy estimates from body shops to make this thing mint again. I should have done more research before buying the car. But I was so excited to finally have one and for the price. I couldn't resist. If there is anyone out there I could pay to fix this or if anyone can point me in the right direction. It would be greatly appreciated. If not I'm going to have to sell it and start out with another. Now for some pics:

I'd been seeing it on CL too. It really doesn't look all that bad overall, body panel alignment and such. There are a few body repair aficionados on this site that may be able to help as well. For now I'd just throw a Caprice headlight in there and drive it while you explore your options, lol. A few people have been selling random SS parts on here lately too.

Welcome! Smile

Welcome
It would be a good idea to list where you live or at least mention it. Someone might know of a good body shop that might be near you.
You are is luck somewhat. At least it is not the drivers side. That panel needs to be replaced. I would fix what you need to for now, and start saving for the year one panel. You might find a junk yard car with a good panel, and even get them to cut it off for you. Or just wait till there is one comes along someone is junking, and cut the panel off yourself. A sawzall, and a 3/8 drill bit on a drill is all you need.

Welcome.

If that were my car I'd just make it into a 9C1 clone. Smile

It's normal for a 9C1 to have a few dings. Smile

I live up in the Taunton area. Anyone know of any bodyshops up here? I found a few and I have something lined up. I just wanted to see what any one knew or could do here. It's either I'm going to fix it now or just get rid of it. The body shop I did find said they could have it done in 3 weeks. I want to have it done in a month. Completely new everything. From wheels to custom interior. My interior guy said he could have my interior back to me in 2 weeks while its in the body shop. The wheels I want are in stock and ready to ship. Mechanically it's fine. Few upgrades. I'm not going to drive it until she's up to my standards.

Not me bro. When I want to execute something I do. I just finished a 30 day build on my 93 corrado slc. It's like once I put my mind to something. I'm so excited to see the finished product. I get everything done.

No reasonable offer refused in this thread, but firm in the other one? Suspect

You're asking $1800 for your car, I'm asking $6000 for my 96 Impala SS (southern car).

If you give me your car and $4200 and I'll give you mine.
