Unibody has been offset 2 inches! Sign In

Hello folks I have a 1998 ford contour SVT and after an accident the in which someone hit the passenger side wheel and fender, the unibody is tweaked over about 2 inches. It is really frustrating because the hood is just barely out of line with the fenders so I can't put it back on without overlap. I have tried pulling it out with a portapower many many times but it seems to just pull the whole car over and not the frame over. I'm very sad and ready to give up, is there anything I can do different?

All you can do is make it worse. The whole body is twisted. You aren't going to fix that with a port-a-power, that's for sure.

You can take it to a competent collision shop and see if they can pull it with the frame machine but for all intents and purposes, that car is totaled.
