If I'm not mistaken, it's going to have to be sectioned and welded. I recently went shopping for an estimate to have my passenger door repainted as well as the mirror replaced and it was upwards of $200 everywhere I went (Cayenne Red '98 Z28).
The same man who quoted my Camaro is usually the cheapest of anywhere local. He charged $550 to repair and repaint the area right behind my door when I had my Mustang (and that's just bondo, prep, and paint).

ive been doing body work for 15 years i can give you a good ball park.
15 hours to replace
3 hours to paint
1.5 hours to R&I mirror, handle, and belt moulding
2 hours to blend
1.5 to R&I
1.5 to R&I all the trim inside the trunk
now take all those hours and add them up and times them by the average labor rate at body shops near you. i live in md and our labor rate is $40 an hour. so 24.5 hours times $40 is $980. that $980 is just for labor. that doesn't include parts cost and materials so i would say your looking between $1500 to $2200 as just a rough ball park figure
