Unfortunately nobody repairs panels anymore. It doesn't matter whether they are plastic, aluminum, fiberglass or sheet metal if they are torn, ripped or caved in, they will just be replaced. All vehicles over the years have become lighter to meet certain standards. The day of the bump and paint shop is long gone.

You are absolutely right, I have a 39 Pontiac torn down in the garage, moving a body panel is work. I could take a bowling ball and drop it on the hood, it would just bounce and leave no mark. I wouldn't try this on anything built today.

Replacement alot of times is cheaper compared to the labor involved.
What totals out a vehicle so quickly is airbag deployment. Reason being is after a crash the insurance company has to factor in ALL of the SRS components if there was a deployment. That means not only the deployed bag but also all the sensors, the module, clockspring, ect. associated with it. Plus the labor quickly adds up greater than the value of the vehicle. Especially if it's over 5 years old.
