Well, I removed the torqued fiberglass front trunk lid and turned up the torsion bar on the drivers side which was completely backed off and suddenly it's not looking too bad. I think at this point it's actually driveable. Ok, maybe not very far... Yes, I'll need some sheet metal around the drivers A pillar that took a nice solid tree, and maybe some around the passenger headlight that got pushed down by another tree.

Big beefy brake calipers and rotors. Sway bar looks great, LCA are probably bent, but not much else underneath except for sheetmetal. I need to get it up on the rack to know for sure.

So cool! Glad to see it made it okay. Always a worry with transport. Especially when it get's moved rig to rig a few times. Congrats on getting it finally. Now the fun really begins. Can't wait to see it come together Dan. As soon as my car is on the road I've got to come down to see it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif)

Good candidate for getting a portapower.

Do you have a stud gun? I have your slide hammer here.

Do you have some heavy duty trees you can pull around or maybe build some pyramid structures out of heavy duty steel and bolt to the ground for anchor points for pulling the chassis out?

I have ideas we need to discuss (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Pieces you 100% need:

Front hood (Fiberglass)
Front end (Sheridan, Do you have this on order?)
930 control arms (Or possibly 914 control arms with 914 torsion bars? http://914world.com/bbs2/lofiversion/index.php?t162853.html )
Driver side A pillar section.
Drivers side headlight bucket

I placed my order in the 914 store. We'll see who can fill it, cheap...
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=331775

The boss and I negotiated for a Sheridan order. I'm only holding off because I don't have anywhere to store it. I gotta get that BMW stripped and crushed.

I had some ideas for bending sheet metal. I have no shortage of trees, but I also was thinking we could use the lift. Either the posts for side to side or the arms for up and down. Maybe put some anchors in the concrete and reinforce the Ibeams for the lift a bit more solid. I think the bending might be minimal once the items that are heavily bent are replaced. (or just before they are replaced..) The measurements we took of Andrews car are pretty close other than the A-pillar pushed in and the passenger headlight bucket pushed down a couple inches. It's all fixable with flat sheet metal, but easier with some cheap (did I say cheap) replacement panels.

I would not use the lift. It was designed with the stresses setup to support a car up in the air. Putting side loads on it changes the direction of the stress, possibly weakening it for holding a car up. Personally, I wouldn't get under a car on a lift that had been used like that.

I have pulled cars out using trees before. When my nephew got hit in his Datsun 510 years ago, I pulled it out by strapping it between 2 very large Oak trees and using a come along to pull the B-pillar out. That and 2 new doors got it back on the road.

Thanks Clay.
I really don't think a lot of bending will be needed once I replace the majorly bent pieces. The rest of the numbers are really close to Andrews measurements for the most part. less than 1/2" or so. I think before I spend a lot of time on how I will bend it, i need to figure out where I need to bend it.

I'll look for the trees that might do that. I might have a few that will do. Plus a Jeep with a 9000 lb winch doubled would be 18000. That should rip it apart if the button got stuck...

Dan-

I met you at Tygaboys Fab day....

I was pleased to learn this past weekend that you brought this beast to the West Coast. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Once done, you and Andrew will have two of the nicest wide body 914's (w/engine swaps) around.

I'm looking forward to seeing them together in the future.

I'm sorry I couldn't be at the BBQ, but you know it was because I was expecting any day... I enjoy your stories!
In case you can't tell, we're both pretty stoked about the whole idea.

Who says you cannot buy a thrill?

Laying a little rubber in a 914 V8 is great fun and you do not need to break any speed laws.

How is the radiator? No leaks?

Have fun.
