    WOW, may I ask how did you do that, ?

    but anyway, I think it can be fixed , some heating to put things in the right place, some plastic or fiber glass and some paint and good as new
    psst, where is the speaker ?

    Looks like the car ran over one of these (or something like it):

    If the rocker panel is all that's involved a proper repair will involve cutting out the badly bent sheetmetal and welding in a new piece from a donor car. I'd get under the car and check the frame rails, exhaust, transmission crossmember etc for damage.

    It probably did. If I didnt have a donor car could a welder just cut and fabricate a long sheet of metal to take its place?
