Well guys some of you may know I wrecked my car a couple weeks ago. Now its getting repaired and I should have it back my next week which I'm happy about.
Although they told me there is frame damage to the car which they told me is not really bad since I got hit from the side. I noticed that my passenger fender was close to the door this is when I first drew my conclusion which was the day of the wreck... I thought it was bent but when I went to the body shop I found out it was the frame that had moved over towards the passenger side which resulted in the fender going towards the door.
Anyways enough of the talk do you guys think the frame will be okay after they fix it back to normal or what should I do I am very confused at this point your opinions will help me a load.

Here are some pictures for reference :

There really is no 'frame'. The front engine cradle could be considered a frame, but the body of the vehicle itself makes up the rest of it. Depending on who is doing the work and how dilligent they are, there may be no problems after they pull everything back into place. A friend of mine has a frame shop and all his work is done perfectly. He even tries to beat the factory tollerances on the measurements.
