Got a 95 Metro that was wrecked. The section of the underbody where the lower control arm mounts to was bentand pushed upward when the car was in an accident. The control arm, etc are fine. Thinking that I may be able to repair this. Couple options come to mind. Either knocking this part of the underbody or floorpan back into shape or else getting this section from a donor car, cutting the old damaged section out and welding the good/new section in. Both are do-able as I have a torch and mig welder. Looking for either the whole body manual or else the sections that show this portion of the body along with the dimensions. On other vehicles like my old Ford Ranger, I've seen diagrams that have frame alignment dimensions, ride height, etc. Anyone have either the complete body manual or these sections that they can email to me?? Thanks!!

There's a diagram with measurements in the technical section of the gallery.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!
