Hey everyone, got a quick question, recently my son crashed his Baja bug and bent the front frame head 1" when measured from front to rear shock towers, you can see a little wrinkling of the metal on the right side. Is it better to just replace the frame head or take the pan to a body shop and have then straighten it out? thanks in advance Kenny P.S. the car used to be a Super Beetle and was converted to link pin.

You would be better off to replace the pan head. You can get an aftermarket new one for $125-$150. Just make sure its square and straight when you weld it back in.

We can get you the frame head for $149 and if you bring me just the pan with the body off we can replace it for 6 hours labor, so $300 labor
