Then you sir are a great mechanic. How did you straighten it out though? Corrected the firewall etc?

It's a very long story, basically I built a jig using reference points for the front and rear bumper mountings, front and rear subframe mounts and gearbox mounts. Then I replaced all the damaged panels, when I was finished every weld was as the car left the factory. I was told the car couldn't be repaired by a guy who did this for a living and I just had to prove him wrong
