repairs...

Hi guys, i dont post much here but i really need help. To start off with my dad owns a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT. Well i drove my brother to pick his car up from the bar today in the Ranger. I was backing into the side spot on the driveways because my dad has a work truck and the Ranger isn't driven much. As i was backing in i got stuck on some mud as i had to go wide to not hit my dads truck. I gave it a little gas and it got out but when i got traction it took off into the side of our house. Only hit the edge of the house not really hurting it but the Ranger was hurt. The rear right tail light, and right side back quarter panel are both cracked. I really messed up here and i need to make this right. So what i need help with is where can i get a new panel and light for cheap? The lowest i could find was $370 for oem and $20 for the tail light. I'm expecting to pay near around 1K for the paint according to the shop my brother is getting me a deal at. But do you guys know any good places to buy them? I was going to buy a 240SX soon but that plan is screwed now thanks to me and some rain. But anyways yea please help if i have to pay around $1400 im screwed as i just started working and it will take me a year to make that much. Thanks in advance guys.

if its a flareside bed, you can take the bed sides off.

certifit makes good parts, but he would have to get it painted.

to get a bed side painted, it shouldn't be over $300 for paint and clear.
