Default Are New Quarter Panels Available?

Hi,

Trying to help a friend repair her accident-damaged Ion Coupe. Does anyone know if new rear quarter panels are available, and if so, where they can be purchased? I have found some used ones, but if we could buy new in the correct color (black) that might be preferable.

Thanks
Andy

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

afaik, new painted panels are not available.

but, some used parts places can order in specific color panels from other parts places (salvage yards).

https://www.partshotlines.com/component/phl/search/
for example

the search results show color, condition, location and price

Thanks Peter,

I did call a few of the places that showed used black ones. Some of them refused to ship body panels, due to concerns of damage in shipping. One that would quoted $400 for shipping, so it makes more sense to get them locally and have them repainted. Thanks for the reply.

I also routinely search my local you-pull yards to see if they have a 2007 green sedan fender in (that is what I am looking for).

LKQ
pull-a-part
u-pull-and-save
pick-a-part

are some common names.

where do you live?

Default Re: Are New Quarter Panels Available?

I'm in Spokane. The biggest local junkyard has a "Pull and Save" section, but they don't have what I need. Their regular yard has the stuff in the wrong color; I asked them if they could move that car to the Pull and Save yard, but they (very nicely) told me they don't do it that way. So I guess the options are:

1. Buy what I need from the regular yard and have it painted.
2. Wait to see if they move the car to the Pull and Save at some point.
3. Keep checking back to see if a car of the correct color, with what I need undamaged, shows up in either yard.

Don't forget there are yards in Vancouver, Tumwater, Seattle, Boise, Richland, etc... Sure, it might be a drive of a couple of hours, but always options.

Me? I am checking regularly every yard within 2 hours for when that 2006-7 Cypress Green Ion sedan pops in next...

Good luck. I want to know how much the painting is for you if you go that route.

it's a sedan.

are sedan and coupe quarter panels the same? I don't recall.

if a local yard to me has one, I would be willing to get it and ship for cost (but getting there this week could be a problem). I am at 48912

Gundies in Seattle has a perfect pair of black quarter panels for about $800 for the pair. I found these by looking at “ car-part.com”. Enter what you are looking for and your zip. I have found a few parts this way.

FWIW, a cost effective way to ship large body parts is by Greyhound bus. Depot to depot pickup.

yeah, I also checked into FedEx for something similar (large table, 1' x 3' x 7', about 50#) and was surprised it was only about $60 going from Michigan to Massachusetts.
