New Door and Front Wing required?

Hi all, was recently in an accident where someone pulled out of a side road and hit me.

The door and front wing are damaged (Large dents, large scratches down the metal), anyone know if I'll likely need a salvage door and front wing (available from a silver 56 s-type) or will a bodywork shop be able to sort it out as is? If I do buy and fit the new door and wing anyone any ideas what price I'll be looking at to respray it to match?

Mine's an orange 08 2.2 S-type.

Would post pics but unable to currently.

I got a complete drivers side rear door in the correct colour for £60 including glass, door card, window motor etc. Probably could have got cheaper if I was prepared to be patient. Took 15 minutes to fit.

A wing and a door shouldn't cost too much.

I recently picked up a new door for my Type S as mine had a dent in.

Door was £75 and a new wing from the same breaker would have prob been £20-30.

Only problem you will have is getting one in the same colour - bit rate the orange.

If you cannot find one being broken in the same colour as your car, you may as well have a body shop repair and paint it.
