    Possibly... Does appear that in the engine bay the body is coming away from the 'rail' ......

    thats what i thought.

    Its only about 4-5mm at most.
    Mates dad has a Car chassis straightener. they used it to do his Paseo which was heaps more bent then mine. so might be life left in the old girl yet!!

    Even if your chassis is bent it looks pretty minor... when you've got visibly bent rails then I'd start worrying.

    Even then, nothing which a big tree, some straps and a winch cant deal with.

    I'd say that your top drivers side hinge has flogged out so the door is now sagging (hence the gap).

    LOL @ Golberg.

    Ill see how it is once new struts in.

    BTW, the door hinge isnt worn, there is noticeable gap difference between the guards and the pane thats around the window washers.. wasnt there before.. im guessing its bent about 5mm... ill see what mates dad says when i take it around next week anyway
