Default frame bending help

got this fd with the flip up headlights and on the driver side the frame is a little bit and causing the lights to not go down or the fender to line up right the car drives perfect, any idea how much it would cost to get this bent back to spec? i know every case is different just looking for somewhat of an idea.

i would take some parts off of it and see how bad the damage really is. It looks like it got a good hit, so I would take it to a shop to get it straightened up, and that should take care of the fitment problems

it would depend on if you want them to just straighten up to where the parts fit or actually replacing metal and acutally measuring everything so that its truly right

honestly just fixed so that it all looks right and all lines up fine it already drives fine just want it to look cosmeticly right and for the lights to be able to fold down.

i'm pretty sure any body shop would get you a better idea. putting a car on a frame machine isn't cheap. get an actual estimate. could be less than what you think to have a professional fix it.
