Rear Quater Panel Replacment !! Anyone done it

Hi all... I have brought a Renault megane 2005 convertible. Which the rear quarter panel is stuffed... on the passenger side.

I went to a scrap yard yesterday and cut on out with leaving about 10cm all the way round from where its spot welded on.
but I have been told today there is no possible way of removing the old one from the car and then welding this one on.

I was going to just clean up all the way around where its spot welded and remove excess meteal and just re weld it back on
but I have been told that soon as I clean it all up the panel will just twist and its not possible to get it looking right.
has anyone actually done this.
the problem is the person before me forgot to put the handbrake on and it rolled and scratched the side of the car. I have replaced the bumper
wing and door its the rear quarter I am not sure about..

Any help would be more than helpful
