exactly what kind of accident this was in?

and did it make sense to buy this when you have to change the chassis?

The chassis for this comes in halves and is rejoined by drilling and welding at precut measurements...far as i know the previous owner was drunk and it seems he hit an embankment and pushed everything up....i not saying that its going to work...this is a work in progress and a learning experiience hence the reason i thought i would share it with the nissan 4x4 guys...i already have this model in black and i thought i would try a thing...push come to shove and it dont workout she can be sold in parts

It's just so sad :( :( :(....

take good care of that frontier bro, would love to see her restored to full condition.
Good luck, keep us posted :).
Notify us if there's any change in the patient's condition.

*goes to the garage and pats the frontier... then the nav*

How much did the parts cost. Did you try getting the parts in the caribbean?
How long do you estimate it will take?

Good luck ...

$30,000US = $180,000TT :shock:
Approximately how much is a new pickup (just for comparison)
The price you got it for is amazing.
Keep us updated.

i can get a set of rims 4 you for around 3k tt...with tyres that have about 30% life on them.

Oh and good luck with the restoration, btw, you said that you had to get parts from Trinidad...i thought they would have been cheaper in the Caribbean?

so instead of changing chassis, cant the same chassis be repaired on a chassis liner, take off the cabin and pull back into place......

^^ i don't see why now.

Remember it's a ladderframe with a body on top, not a unibody frame like with a regular car.
I'm sure you can straighten the chassis just fine, it doesn't look too bad from the pics.

The body itself though would need some work...

I saw this done on an L200 that got t-boned. It is possible, but the work has to be done properly or else there will be major issues getting the cabin to line up.

yes it has to be done to specs, i would prefer to do that than the cut and weld business, its a good procedure, but i prefer to keep it factory, and

where is the chassis no on this van?

not in the right front?

so wont that part of the chassis be tampered with.......??

any accident that warps the subframe should warrant a new chassis. unless you have a foolproof way of ensuring the frame lines up after repair (eg laser alignment for chassis)

otherwise the body not gonna fit right and the vehicle not gonna roll right

purpose for the cut and fit is that the suspension eyes on the chassis it self was hurt and i needed the easiest way to straighten it.....have to pull it back into place first....straighten....then cut....that is the plan anyway....wen its taking place u guys will get the pics...i havent been able to do anything with her this week cause i been had a hectic schedule....hopefully i will get the cab lifted tommorow and get some work done to it....gotta check the nuts and bolts man for some bolts to replace the 6 that tied the chassis to the cab as those were hurt....happy watchoing fellas
