Bringing it back from the dead

Hello, my name's jay and this is my crashed s2000. Hopefully you guys could give me some helpful feedback as to the how abouts I'm going to fix this thing. Right now the next step is to pull the frame as straight as possible and go from there. Was wondering you guys could help me figure out most internal parts I would need

Unfortunately George your pictures didn't load. Knowing you are going to be straightening the frame can we assume this car has been totaled? If so, you might want to weigh just parting it out and finding a replacement car.

I agree with VP above. This car is notoriously sensitive to tires, alignment and if the frame is off it is almost impossible to bring it back to factory specs. It will never be the same.

If you right click >Open in new tab you can see the pictures and it's not pretty. I don't think you're going to pull it straight. Like VP and Cos said, I'd part it out and look for a replacement.

Good tip, I was able to see the pics and you are prone to understatement: It is not pretty.

Part it out. Car is dead.

Or, considering doing a swap with the engine/tranny to something like a Miata or an MGB. I have always wondered what a 1rst gen Miata would do with an s2k engine/tranny in it.
