yea I'm a beginner lol I have done some dent pulling and bondo in the past, but this looks like it may need to be cut off and re welded... what kind of price range does something like this run? I dont need paint...

Honestly, if you are going to do it your self have patience and plenty of time.
It's an involved process but not very difficult if the frame/ inner structure isn't bent or tweaked.

I wont be doing it myself if there is cutting and welding involved. I don't have the proper tools for a job like that. I'm rebuilding the engine at the moment so when its up and running I will get quotes for the panel repair. Ill update thread as I go, thanks for all the input!

if you dont want to do it right then why not just leave it as is and cruize it till you find a clean shell?

I never said I didn't want it done right, 3 of the 6 shops I went to and got quotes didn't even want to touch it because It wasn't a insurance claim. And I'm not paying $1,000 labor + parts that's ridiculous. I started this thread to see if there was a way to pull it myself. there wasn't. But if a shop can get it straight $250 sounds a hell of a lot better than $1300. looking at it it really isn't that bad in person...
