    Looks like the passenger side where the dent is, is pushed back about a 1/4".

    What does this mean for me? Should I look at sourcing out another one, or can this be fixed?

    One step forward, two back. Got to love projects!

    Not sure what to tell you. My frame was bent so i set out to find a better one it did take me a year to find one. I would have preferred to fix the original frame but unfortunately the talent out where i live does not exist.

    It could probably be pulled back into shape on a chassis machine but might be a little tricky to find someone to do it for you.

    Also worth checking measurements on the unibody before you go any further

    Slow progress being made but progress none the less. Find the end of summer in the near distance and I need to get myself setup for the winter work I will be able to do on the vehicle. Have ran the tram gauge on the subframe trying to decide how bad it is or isn't in an effort to figure out what I am going to do. Buy another or use this one. Will add some pictures and get some insight soon on that part of the build. I will probably start working on the firewall next. removing things that are not needed and cleaning it up nice. Not sure yet if I will run A/C or heat. Vintage air unit if I do will be much later. So for now may just block off the holes. We will see.
