What are my best options

Hey guys so I recently got in a car accident in my 98 240sx. It was a front end collision and pretty much destroyed my radiator core support and dented a like bit of my chassis I wanted to see what my options are should I get fixed by pulling out the chassis and fixing the aprons and going tubed core support or should I just go completely tubed front end btw I wanna know the cons and pros to both since once the car is fixed I wanna still be able to use on the street and go to the track on the weekend here are some pictures of the accident so you guys have an idea of whatís going on.

Put it on the frame machine and see how it looks. All that sheet metal can be fixed, and I believe you can still get a brand new radiator support. Just depends how much time/money/nice you want it to look.

Yeah thatís what I was thinking but a new core support for my Kouki is like $600 Iíd rather just get it tubed and fix the sides of the chassis

S15 core supports are pretty much the same as a Kouki support and only cost $175.

Is the title still clean? If so then tubed will be cheaper, but if the title gets flagged, I know a tubed frame wonít pass inspection for a rebuilt title.

You need to know that first. I think youíre either pricing out tube frame or itíll be totaled and youíll be looking for a clean chassis
