ok so at this point i was gonna toss here out back under a tarp..but only till i was organized enough to start repars... it started to turn out to be one of those rides where you take a step foward but then 2 steps back....Cry    it only damaged the front valance witch was hammerd already, the crossmember ,and oil pan....and tweaked the core support just enough to give me a headach....after tryn all my tricks and failing on this core support i called in back up...funny thing , he had the core support straight in about 30 mins, and the hood even latches better than it did..lol ,and every thing ligned up ,bolts went right in....Big smileBig smileBig smileBig smile   so it never did make it to the back yard...a couple good 510 buddies then talked me into a swap.....everyone who knows me nos i love the L motor...so i started a parts list .......................
 
was gonna need a fabbed up new crossmember, not a cheesy one either, this is what i came up with......
