Frame rail carnage. Fix or forget.

I hope he's already done whatever he needed to. The original poster hasn't posted in this thread in over a year and a half.

If it were my car, I'd clear-coat it and carry a big mirror with me everywhere I went, LOL. The dents just add character, exactly what you'd expect from a real road warrior. The fact that they're totally rust-free would absolutely amaze anyone from these parts.

I used a 4 lb sledgehammer on my drivers side frame rail to straighten it out some (responding here to an old post). Attached should be an animated GIF I made from a 7 minute video I took under the car looking down the frame rail toward the front while I used the sledge with a short 2X2 drift and then a four foot long one to get more swinging room for the hammer though I am not sure the longer drift helped any.

The GIF doesn't show the many sledgehammer blows used to cause the straightening just the total result.
