Need Body Damage repair Suggestion for Acura Intergra 1992

Problem #1
My car got hit on driver side. The door and the part in front of the door is damage. I asked the dealer for estimate he said it would be about 1,000 minimun - 1,500 to repair it. I intend to repair it myself. I'm trying to look for the whole left door, and the piece in front of the door .

Is that a fair estimate ?
About how much a new/used door will cost ?
What is the piece in front of the door ( the piece that surround the wheel ) called ?
Lastly, is this repair can be done easily? I've been trying to find information on how to remove/install the front piece in front of the wheel and the door.

Problem #2
Before the accident that damage my car's door, I drove my car from a high elevation parking lot into the street which is 3 feet below the parking lot, causing a big shock. All rims are bent and tires blown, the arm that hold the right arm that whole the front wheel is broken. The repair shop replaced the arm with a used arm. He said the car should be fine now but when I'm driving at speed of 25 mi/hr or above I can hear a wooble noise, and strange vibration. Could this be cause by mis-alignment on wheels ? I need some suggestion of what could cause this, and where I can get repair.

Year/Make/Model: 1992 ACURA INTEGRA GS
Body Style: Hatchback 2 DR

Body work is an art as well as a skill. I suggest if you want a great job and the car to look good, have it done professionally. Paintwork is not a DIY job without the right skills and tools.

1000-1500 is a fair estimate based on damage as both the fender and the door sound wasted and have to be replaced.

As for the other "repair" bring it back to have it looked at again. You may have a wasted wheel bearing and other suspension damage. Have it fixed without delay, sounds dangerous.

Thanks for the follow up Joe, I'll see to that the wheels got a good looked at again and repair my door when got enough green I was thinking of getting the fender and the the door replace, no painting job needed... Will try to search for a fender and door ( white color ). Repair shop will be last resort

Try www.junkyarddog.com and put in a parts request. Tough to find the exact color (likely won't match even if it is), but it's worth a try.
