Mr big hammer will come out later. Will see how good I can get it, strip the paint back, primer, paint, job done!
Going to try and adapt the bumper mounts. Whilst I am at it I will remove all the weight in it and fabricate some kind of quick release brackets.

Stub axle is going to be more involved as is the engine issue.

Could always send the axle off to IM axle, get everything done at once.

BFH will sort the bodywork no problem :D Some bits were all ready mangled from the first shunt weren't they?

Mike, i would try and bodge it back together, then go to town on weight saving on the shell. As potentially it gets another big knock its a gonna so you have nothing to loose. So get the drill out!!!

There are a few seams that have split.
A dolly, a pull here and there plus a bit of welding should see it right.

split seams seem to be the norm on these far more often now, even without being punted!
