How would you fix this? This si the passenger side radiator support at the bottom. It looks like the po bumped into something solid. It is pushed back and a little wrinkled at the bottom. The strut rod bracket is fine and the rest of the radiator support is in nice shape. What would you do? http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/attachment.php?attid/2984/
That metal is really thick and difficult to reshape. I would just replace the radiator support. It is one of the easiest panels to replace IMO. Not cheap at $130, but well worth it. If you ever want to sell, that dent will cause you problems. Don't give buyers anything to question.
You dont need to replace the whole radiator support. You can get just the cross member. You may be able to section in a new peice w/o replacing the whole thing. Do you have any type of frame straightener handy?
Also, I would check the measurements of the front frame rails etc. That looks like it took a pretty good rap. Good luck.
I have been all over the car this morning and the frame looks ok. The damage is inside of the frame area so I got lucky I guess. I have started another topic to get peoples measurememts and see how close mine is. I measured inside the frame rails at the very front all the way back and I come up with the same exact measurements so i am pretty sure I am good to go. Thanks for the replies
