Default Scratch/Dent

Today i did scratch my GT with a small post (those that are used to hook chains to "close" parking boxes) it was hidden by a wall, i mean one can't see it 'till the car is at mid-way in the park box plus the ring for the chain was really big so it scratch/dent the zone above the rear right wheel just below/back of the door handler (sorry i dunno its english name but in spanish its called "salpicadera") is that part replaceable?

Thanks and saludos

Is it THAT bad of a scratch/dent that you would have to replace that rear panal. [:I] Most accidents like that can be taken care of at any decent body shop a lot cheaper than replacing the part. Stop in for a free estimate.

I agree. Any decent body shop should be able to repair rather than replace. If you're worried about color matching, a new part won't help, because they all come in promer and have to be painted anyway.
Should end up so no one could tell.
