Lost a bit of sleep over this pan head bullshit. Finally got some time to get stuck in and see what I could do. Came apart fairly easily. Pics show the previous attempt at fixing it. She was definitely bent but I reckon I'll be able to beat that shit into shape again!

All back together! Only swapped the front face after straightening out the bent bits. Took heaps of measurements including diagonal from a few points on the rear torsion housing back to the beam and also checking for level. Over the length of the pan I got it to within 1.5mm from side to side. Pretty happy! I ended up trimming the bottom seam off and welding it flush for a little more ground clearance :-$

Thanks dudes! Glad to have that behind me. When I get a spare couple of minutes I'm going to zip up the pin holes in the pan halves and then send it for blasting. Hopefully next week [-o<
Once I've got it in paint then I can take her home and throw a few nights in and get it assembled = the fun part! =D>
