I chose pulling the frame rail as a better option price wise because it's 300 to pull the frame rail and he said he would deal with smaller bends as part of the job. Yes this car is bad but I think it could be worse. This isn't my first project bmw car I had so I'm not that scared or pessimistic about these issue like other people and that's ok also !
its good that you are positive , it s going to take a lot of work to put these bad boy back on the road , specially if you are doing it yourself. But it ll feel good once its done

But before you put all the effort on taking this project , make sure the frame is fine and only the rail needs replacement

I m sure you have a budget for this project, which probably includes used parts and it includes you doing 90% of the work yourself. But last thing u want is burn your budget on paying someone else to fix the frame. Also keep in mind , if the frame requires major work , it will never be the same. Im sure u already know that

Anyways, good luck with ur project. Having one in times like this seems to be a must to avoid going crazy

Yes this going to be dope once it's finished but I am aware that the frame is not going to be the same once it gets pulled and I'm going to be cautious about that forever. Your totally right about the frame work being done first because that's the main issue I'm just glad it's going to be taken care of this week, so I can move on to the other pesky issues the car has like the battery and the airbags.

What's the frame work going to cost you with parts and labor when it's all said and done? I can't imagine it's going to be cheap if it's done be a reputable shop.

It's just looks worse then it actually is. That's how it is sometimes.
