Bent Brat Restoration
Posted 26 November 2003 - 03:29 PM
My friend Joe drove it back from Washington for me and it made the 1800 mile trip without a problem...before we even began to fix it.
Today I picked it up from the frame shop. They set the frame back to original specifications and much of the damage that was done in the accident has "popped" back to looking normal.
Next step is to replace the tailgate and then try to get it inspected and titled.

A little body work and it's as good as new.
Show us pics as the restoration progresses.

Looks similar to some of the damage on mine - maybe a lot of it could be pulled out like yours....

The cost varies depending on how far off it is and how hard the rack is to hook up to the vehicle due to how bent it is if I understood right.
I like yours Mick, but I don't want one JUST like it cuz then it wouldn't be unique. I like that yours has 110,000 less miles on it though! When (if) this engine wears out I will put the super quiet 94k motor out of the 84 wagon in it, or I will put an ea81T in it.
This weekend I am going to put my alloy wagon wheels on it and see how that looks.
