Just work at it a bit more and it will be good as new.
No sweat, it would have taken longer to type out. 5 minute draw.Thanks you guys! Matt, I really appreciate you talking the time to draw out the diagrams and explain everything! May take it to a body shop who would probably do a better job than me to make it as straight as possible. Even though this is cosmetic, would it effect the value at all or is it a non-issue?
When I first looked at your pic I thought it was rusty. Then I saw the perfectly round body mount hole and decided it was flaking paint or undercoating. Rust always attacks those holes and they end up oversize and egg-shaped. Don't sweat it, you haven't hurt anything."Possibility dimensions became altered" concerns me....Need to take frame measurements?
The 4 corners of the frame are "boxed somewhat" and are much stronger than the center area's of the frame so a good look with a flashlight along with some feeling with your paw will show you where to put your floor jack.Great information! It sat overnight jacked up in that area. Frame has no cancer. I had the jack stand adjacent to the floor jack. Does the amount of time matter, or is that inconsequential? I'll jack it up under the front cross member until the bubble on the level is center on the other side then put it inside other frame rail. Of course will need to ensure both rear tires have exactly the same air pressure or results would be inaccurate. Would not have thought of rifle sighting with a ruler but makes sense. check if the top of the frame rail stays even across the length of the top of the ruler. Will also do the tape measure slide technique. Going to inspect the body mount bolts for shifting also.
