i've never repaired a frame. i know the brits do it all the time in order to pass MOT. as for posting pics, there is a ban on new members posting until they hit 5 posts. then follow the directions here.

you could always find a D2 truck that's lived it's life in the southwest and has a blown engine or some other catastrophic mechanical damage like a propshaft through the transmission, and make it a donor vehicle!

What needs to happen? Welding? I'm not familiar with discos. Is that a common area for them to fail?
