Trunk Pan Replacement

I just picked up a 2001 Prelude and it is in excellent shape except that it was "tapped" in the rear. I wouldn't have touched it except that everything looks great except the trunk pan (or floor) is somewhat crumpled. The rest of the lines on the body look great. Even the trunk lid is straight and the bumper isn't bent.

So, I'm wondering how to repair this. The first problem is the part. I can't find JUST the trunk floor. Seems like the only part I can find is "04655-S30-A01ZZ 003 001 PANEL SET, RR. FLOOR" for $613.26! Ouch!!! I think this is a whole lot more metal than I need. Any ideas where to get an aftermarket part or is this done from salvage parts?

Next I tried to find a "1997 Prelude Body Repair Manual," so I could make sure it was the right part, but they aren't cheap and I haven't seen any review of them at all. I wonder if anybody here is familiar with that?

What's the practice for repairing this kind of damage? The car is on a "Salvage Title," so I've got to fix it right before I can operate it and so I can't just gloss over the repair. Any help and ideas are appreciate!

Thanks in advance.
