Unhappy Body work / dent repair guys..look in here

Lets spare the details for this one. Can anyone tell me how to go about this. I called a Dent repair guy and Il be sending him more pics later. The unfortant thing is my fender is now mis-aligned. The dent isnt really bad but horrible enough I sat for an hr looking at it yesterday.
Yet I cant and wont open the Passenger door because the bottom is pressed up against it.

Should I replace the fender with a JY one, have it repainted so it will never match... since they barely ever do.

Any and all advice will be considered.

Thanks!

FYI: pic looks alot worse because I took the plastic peice off.

An no Greek I cant afford your fenders...

Yeah def replace that fender, that is beyond repair. A good body shop should be able to match it up so that you wont be able to tell it was replaced.

replace the fender, it'll be cheaper in the long run, you've also got some pretty bad frame damage over there, will you get that fixed?
