front clip or tubular front

got into an accident--not my fault. was wondering if anyone knows of any plans for a tubular front end--might as well make this a track car now.

if not--where should I weld from if I get a front clip? I am assuming from where any sheet metal is connected to the firewall.

thanks in advance.

here is what I am dealing with.

Not that I know of.

But better be aware of track rules and such. They see a tube frame and they're going to want to see a cert. for it too ...

Pull the motor & inspect your frame horns= massiveley shoved over. When I've replaced them, I went under the fire wall= the floorpan sheet metal. Get a drill & start drilling out all the spot welds. You could stitch weld them. I'd pull the motor & get your car on a frame bench. The only part I would at look at for a mods would be a tubular cradle. I had one on my mustang. Probalby not worth it thou.
