Thanks again Fortunate Son! I've attatched a few more pics. The rocker panel took the brunt of the impact. The B pillar (without a measurement) seems to be approx 1/4 to 3/8's pushed back. That is just by eyeball of how much the passenger rear door gap overlaps the door well. From these pictures, do you think that these dents can be pulled, or is it way too far gone for that kind of repair? I have started pulling parts out of the car, (backseat, passenger seat, trunk lid, passenger tail light, sunroof, headliner, ABC pillar covers,) and have been bag n tagging things for an easier reassembly. This site and the Bentley have been a huge help with removing things. I have more pics, or can take specific pics of the car if needed. I appreciate any help with this project!
