Default Rust repair

Looking for a good repair shop for the repair of the rear quarter panel under the fuel door on a e46. Just noticed it today, paint bubbled up and want to get it taken care of soon. Anyone had any luck?

just FYI there is no "repair" for rust only bandaids. I would just have some one cut it out.

If its just surface rust chances are you can just have the cancer ground completely out then repainted. Most any competent body/paint shops can do it.

I am looking to replace the panel or patch panel the quarter, I figured someone in this group had done the work or had it done for them. I could go to BMW, but I was looking for advice. I will get it done soon. Will kept everyone updated.

Any type of work will require the whole quarter to be painted and panels spot blended for a repair like that. I have done quite a few of repairs like you describe.

E36s under the trunk lid is a pretty easy fix
