Bodywork in SF/Bay Area?

Postby awsnap » 28 Jul 2016 20:04

Picked up this 2-door 510 in need of some front end repair. Picked up a rad support plus, from Troy Ermish this morning, thanks Troy. Looking for a recommendation for body shop in Nor Cal, Bay Area that might be able to either replace the support or weld in the front clip, or recommendations on which route is best. Thanks!

if your not having the car completely striped and painted, block the wheels/ tie the car down and give it a yank with the blazer. then dolly out the rest.

That'll be a million dollars, approximately.

Pulling the passengers side out straight, straightening it out. You could pickup a couple cabled comalongs or a hydralic porta power and do that but I'd first remove the front facia. But then that front clip you got from Troy may be easier to adapt.
