Got my first car today (aww)

'89 lude 2.0 s. Not an Si but im diggin' it so far, besides the cancer on the drivers side.

Say i salvage a left rear quarter panel from the junk yard in better condition than mine, could i just cut/bolt off the old one and slap the salvage one on with a neat bondo job? i know i have to cut part of it off, near the top, but can i bolt off the rest?

Anything to do with the rear quarter panel has to be 'cut'. There ain't no unbolting back there other than the deck lid and rear bumper...which ain't the quarter panel. Only way to do it right is get an unrusted replacement piece. 'Cut' out the old rusty piece and then WELD in the 'new' piece. Grind down the welds so they're somewhat flush, bondo to make smooth, do your primering and sanding of course all inbetween, then paint.
