    a lot of times this gets down when tow trucks and other use the frame holes on these old cars to tie them down while being moved. I have a friend that had his RR taken to the shop by a tow truck and they ripped the frame hole with a chain tie down. Matt

    Along with bent strut rods

    When I was a cheap teenager I could only afford one of those floor jacks with a lifting point the size of a quarter

    Today it drives me nuts when I look at my frame in certain spots because of the indentations

      I have been thinking of welding some "pads" in the jacking points to support those areas in the future.

      I don't believe it was straightened. That wiper switch would drive me nuts, looking at it
