Rear quarter panel?

Hi Guys, im new here!

Got a 96 Punto 55SX and need to replace the rear quarter panel on the drivers side.

I dont suppose any of you have any tips/advice on how to change this?

All help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers
Caroline

I think the rear panels on a Punto are part of the main body structure, i.e. to replace them will require careful cutting and welding.
Hope you're good with an angle grinder and a MIG!

It has to be cut off and a new one welded on. but a good body shop should be able to pull out the one you have got and flatten out the ripples.

I've actually bought the rear quarter panel and light, it can cost anything from 80.

I was just wondering if it was possible for us to replace it ourselves, maybe taking it to a pro willbe a better idea [?]

I wouldn't mind it had only been replaced a few days before :(
