Wow, hopefully no one was hurt

I sure some of the Z1 guys will be along soon to help with your question.

Oh Sh1t Raps - that looks awful! You are obviously well enough to type, but very sad to see the little car looking so crunched.

Good luck with the journey from here

Its hard to imagine the photo looks worse than it is, it looks pretty bad, no chassis damage? There is not alot of demand or a market for panels in the UK, your best bet is Germany and placing requests on all the popular forums such as Z1Z1.de, where used parts trade regularly.

Good Luck
