If the fender aint that bad depending...you can repair it yourself. Get yourself a D.A sander with a 36 grit. remove all of the paint in the damaged area and also about 3in. around the area. NOW after the paint is removed you need whats called a stud gun that will weld brass nails to the fender. NOW attach the slidehammer that comes with the stud gun in the kit and as you pull the out hit around the slidehammer with bodyhammer. ONLY WHEN YOU FEAL THAT YOUR READY TO LAY SOME MUD. put a nice base coat on the area you can sand it after bout 20 min. but dont make it perfect. NOW IS THE TIME that you wanna check for any high and lows. use some polyester putty to fill in the lows then sand it 80grit on a board. it should feather in nicely. NOW you can mix up and shoot bout 3 coats of primer and sand it on a block with 400 the go to 600 then 1000 all wet. now you can shoot color the all you need is your molding :cool:

Buy an aftermarket fender. THey are like 80 bucks for this car.
If you get an A/M fender,make sure it is CAPA certified.
