Back on the straight and narrow

This Nissan Altima arrived at the shop three weeks ago, bent and mangled from a collision with a light stanchion. Nissan builds good cars, but in this case, the Altima came out on the losing end.

The first three photos, numbers 1-3, show the car after I did a bit of disassembly to see how much damage there was, and there was a lot. The car was sent to the car chiropractor for some adjustments to the structure of the car so the replacement panels would fit properly.

Today the car came back after the structure of the car was pushed and pulled back into specification. It still needs some cosmetic work, but you can see in the last two photos, numbers four and five, the car looks a lot better than it did a few weeks ago.
