Once you make the decision to scrap the housing before you do it run a hot 2 inch weld across the tube near where it enters the pumpkin housing place this weld in the direction where you want the tube to go then rapidly cool it. the tube should pull in the direction of the weld the direction you want it to go as the weld shrinks. You could also cut half way through the tube and weld it back up. if you need to use more force. once you get it where you want it maybe add a rear truss to keep it where you want it.Well, this free 9" housing isnt looking very good. If the Torino ends were bad I'd cut 'em off and use it but each side was butt welded close to the middle of each tube!
