if its creased the rear gaurds chances are it will be written off, i wouldnt want to drive a car with repaired rear gaurds (they form part of the structure of your car)

and on e-series the read guards are all linked into the roof arent they? meaning you cant replace them without replacing it all?

yea they have to cut and weld a new section, 99% of the time making the structure weaker, hence why they write them off

You're better off having the car written off and getting another EF then driving around in a car with bodgy repairs.
