Auto body repair help........???
    #6353552 - 12/10/06 11:57 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Well fuck me.

Friday night i was out at a bar having a couple beers. My jeep was parked on the street, the corner of the parking lot driveway.

Some idiot misjudged the turn into the lot, and totally took out the driver side front end.

The bumper is bent into the wheel well and the front side panel is creased inward.

It still drives but the wheel rubs on the wheel well pretty bad when i make right turns.

Does anyone have any ideas on how i can bend the wheel well a bit to get it off the wheel???

I tried a tire iron/ crow bar.....tried whacking on the crease with sledgehammer....no avail.

Its a '93 Jeep Cherokee....so its pretty fucking solid.....

Fuck.

..............

"MAN! You know there aint no such thing as left over crack!"

Just take off the bumper.

If its still rubbing from the inner fender thats been pushed in, you'll either need to take a hammer from the inside and push it out or use a dent puller from the outside while pushing from the inside.

Got any pics? That sounds shitty.

Hey -- Guess what? I was hit last month while my truck was in the driveway. The guy was all hopped up on pain killers, and had almost no idea what he had done. He drove though my neihbors front yard and in the back of my truck. Luckily, all that happend was this:

unfortunately, my insurance will not cover this.  I cheaped out and only got bare minimum liability :frown:

I'll try getting the bumper off and getting that shit hammered out.

going to have to wait until tomorrow, as all my tools are at work.....doh

but i will snap some pics later and post em.

Back home on the farm, we use to get a logging chain, and tie it to a tree, and put it on bumpers and pull it out.
I dont know if you have access to a chain, and a tree.
But be carefull.

Im sure there are tons of replacement fenders on Ebay and such for cheap.

My buddy is a big Jeep guy, and he's got these catelogs where you can buy entire Jeep tubs and shit to put right on the frame.

Maybe look for some fiberglass fender replacements too. You could get some with bigger wheel openings and stick some 35's on w/o lifting sky high :wink:

I was going to suggest the same thing if it's the bumper that's rubbing the tire,
if it's the fender or inner fender, use an aluminum ball bat, place the fat end on
the tire, have someone drive forward slowly and let the bat push the bent metal
back out...

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

Hopefully I can get the fender and tire off.......

Wish I had a tree or something, I think that idea would work perfectly.
