Default 69 to 79 frame WTB...

I could also be looking for a new frame. I brought it in to have a little tweek done to the right front, I ended up getting it back twisted, end to end. I don't know if that can be fixed. They had eight hours into it and they charged me $593, get this....$175 for materials.

So does anybody have a STRAIGHT rust free frame up to 79 that I might be able to use. Preferably within driving distance.

Do you remember that frame rail that was in just a bit? I was having that pulled out to make up for the half inch difference in the crossways measurement. Blairs collision ended up actually twisting the frame end to end. with the frame horns level , there is a one one difference in height from one to the other. The floor is flat enough, it can't be out an inch. You can actually see the twist while standing at the back. Plus it will only sit on three stands where as before it would sit on all four. I'm going to phone them tomorrow but I don't think I'll get much help from Linda. She was pretty rude. She tried to get me to release them from any responsabilty before starting and I said what for, do I have it in the wrong shop? She said no, but apparently so.
