If you really think sheet metal that holds up the weight of the car is bolted in, head to a pick-your-own-parts salvage yard and unbolt a pair to put in your car.
You have a really nice car, especially compared to the new stuff the insane engineers force on us, but it has no frame. Unibody construction is much stronger and lighter, ... Until it rusts away. The proper repair involves welding in new formed sheet metal. That is not a big job for most body shops but it is not going to be cheap.
