1973 Plymouth Roadrunner frame straightening

Riverside Restorations, Manotick ON, mid 2008. Due to all my moves, the house fire etc. I lost track of this video nugget. Enjoy the hi tech frame straightening machine and automotive chiropractic science at its best. The car X's out perfectly now (believe it or not) and the final moments of the vid show the Runner as it is today.

Patching extensive unibody frame rust
I cut out and patch substantial rust damage on the unibody frame of my 95 Saturn. This is immediately behind one of the front wheels. The car was undercoated when it was new but the tires have sandblasted this section to expose the metal. Salt and water have rusted away the structure, which I had to cut out and replace. This may not be a professionally approved method but I do feel that is it solid. I will be coating the inside of the frame with rust inhibitor. Basically I cut away all the rust down to solid metal. Then I created a patch from scrap, formed it, and welded it solidly into place. Finally I painted it and will be undercoating it too. Redneck repair? Perhaps it is!
