Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Can you post a picture of the damage? It would be much easier if I could see the issue at hand. Thanks
Replacement of the rear quarter panel is a very involved repair. There is a lot of work involved here. The interior needs to come out, the panel cut off, the new panel welded on, the seam hidden, then primed, painted and clearcoated. A quarter panel is the second most expensive panel to replace on a vehicle (the roof is the most expensive). WIthout seeing the damage, I cannot commend on if it can be repaired or not. The repair would be determined by your bodyshop. Most damage can be 'pulled out', with body putty filling the damaged areas that cannot be pulled. However, the more body putty is used, the more apt the putty could fall out over time. In the body shop business, the less body putty you have to use, the better off you are.
