Laguna sill

Thanks for your replies so far I will take a photo of it tomorrow and put it on . But in the mean time the damage is about half the length of the still from the back of the car to the centre pillar, it is completely creased in up to the inner sill (but no damage to the inner). Ive been to various car panel shops today and they all gave me the same information, that is the sill for the laguna 98 and on are different than the earlier ones and they cant get them. A body shop told me it would be easier to replace the section of damaged sill as it would be less work than to pull out the damage and fill it. I really only need the rear half of the sill but apparently they only do the entire thing. So I would just cut a new one in half. The only way I see to pull the damage out is to cut the sill in a number of places and lever it back into a rough shape weld it and fill it .
