So another day in paradise right, I was prepping my 2g to get painted for restoration after sitting a year on my yard (bought as broken)
And it's been just rain and storms past 2 months, and this morning I noticed that a huge limp fell on my TSi and qarter panel is smashed.
I do have one roller GS 2ga, would I be able to weld on a quarter panel from it or what should I do, I could hammer it from inside and body fill it close to straight.

I have history in the body shop world, and it depends what you want, if you want perfect, slap a now quarter on, but in my opinion that's overkill especially if its rust free.

The damaged area is super easy to access to pop out, with some hammer / dolly and with possibly a mini sledge and filler it will look like new if you know how to use them. A pin gun would probably be useful too but if you don't have one I wouldn't justify the cost for the little you'd use it.

Rent or borrow a puller! That will come out farly well and final shape will fine tuning from the inside. Dont give up and fix this dink. Also trim trees above incase to stop it from doing this again.

Your best solution will be to contact a company/individual who does paintless dent removal (PDR). They work from the outside of the dent inward. If you attempt to "help" them by doing any pulling/pushing yourself, it will make their job much harder. If you have comprehensive in your insurance coverage, it will cover the cost of this repair. IF you can't afford a PDR service, then at least watch a bunch of YT videos on dent pulling/body work so that it will go as smoothly as possible for you.

Sorry to see what happened. Best of luck, and show us the painted finished car when you are finished.
