HOLY ROLLIN DEATHTRAP BATMAN.... honestly, the "original" frame lookes salvagable....... it can be fixed. it might be above your skill level..... it might not, the only way to know is to try.... and unlike the last guy that looks like he didn't ask ANYONE for help, the OP seems more than willing to admit he doesn't know it all... (I sure don't either) THAT is what makes the difference!!! the ability to ask for help and others opinions... or screw it up BAD before you will admit you don't know. I THINK IT CAN BE SAVED!!!
