Hello all,

Here is a bad crash rebuilt several years ago. The picture posted below was the first email shot I received when they asked if it could be rebuilt. I said "sure I can rebuild it" all the while they were probably thinking "pucker up butter cup" Anyway it was a chore but came out quite well.

This is a picture of the lower frame rail outer skins with both of the inner structures drilled off. I rebuilt the suspension mount sleeves using 1" washers on both sides welded to the sleeve. This will prevent the sleeve welds from fracturing off the skins which all late model cars are prone to.

This one was close to a total for sure.

This next picture is a better view of the removed damage showing the right rear wheel well fixture mounted to the car. I have a fixture system that bolts to a heavy frame spit platform that locates every stud or nut welded to the body. Using our fixture we can replace all of the damage assuring a correct part position. Using the fixture system, AmeriSport could build a Pantera from scratch if all the original metal parts were still available. It has proven to be invaluable when we're rebuilding sever crashes or bad rust damage.

Freshly mounted quarter panel and deck lid. The deck was mashed badly on the right side where the impact originated. I had to remove the inner structure to straighten the skin and then re-weld the inner frame-work. The deck came out quite well considering the extent of damage.
