Frame?

Postby Tailssideup » Fri Apr 13, 2007 6:58 pm

I was in an accident a while back with my 1980 Pontiac Sunbird, I was wondering if my frame could be straightened. I beleive it was bent in the accident because after spending the time to get the new control arms in the tire sites physically back in the wheel well, and the bumper droops on the passanger side, which is the side affected by the accident. If I can get this frame straightened I will have it straightened, I am only 17 but I will make this car work. If not, I will pull as many parts as I can off of it and junk it. Also, if it isnt able to be straightened, I will be looking for another H-body, preferrably Notchback with a 4 speed, but I will look over any offer thrown my way.

You should be able to have the car straightened. I had a buddy that hit a bvld with his spyder so bad that the drivers door wouldn't close. The body shop pulled it all back into shape and he drove the car for years after that with no ill effect.

Phew, I was thinking that I would be completely screwed and have to start finding another car. Well, I will call around to alot of collision repair places to see about pricing. This car is worth it to me.

Thanks.
