Is this fixable?

Hi guys,

I own a 2010 Acura TSX - don't know much about cars so sorry for my ignorance...

I caught a curb at a shopping mall parking garage over a year ago and damaged the bottom of my car (rocket panel?!).

When I look at the car it looks like its a part of one large piece but wondering if it can be fixed without replacing the entire thing?

I have searched in vain online to try and price the part for a while. Can someone help shed some light on this for me? What part needs to be replaced? Any idea of the cost?

Thanks in advance for the help

Probably, but "rocket" panels are cheap and easy to replace...


Find a pre-painted one, bolt on, good to go...

Pretty sure that's part of the body and not independently replaceable.

It's either a cut and weld off a donor car, or body shop to finesse the damage out and give it a fill and repaint.

Definitely manageable, but most likely not a DIY job unless you've done that sort of thing. It's not a bolt on.

Cu2 is right!


I can see now tgat your car does not have independent rocker panels like the 1G TSX did.


Anything is fixable... It just depends on how hard you're willing to work or spend!


Bring to shop!

you might be able to get away with SE/Modulo side skirts to cover the damage. Keyword, MIGHT. Best bet is take it to a body shop get a quote to get it fixed.
