DON'T WORRY, its not my Charger, but you guys are the best for this kinda advice.

Pictures should tell you what you need to know.

My questions is, do I have the car pulled out on a frame machine, or can I just cut out the bad quarter/frame rail and go from there?

Hopefully some of you pros out there can let me know. Also, if having it pulled is the way to go, what should I expect a shop to charge, it would be for pulling it out only, I would be doing the quarter replacement and all the rest.

Thanks in advance!...!

oh no  icon_smile_blackeye

hard to see from the pictures  , but  whats the door gaps like ?? also  does the drivers door catch when opening & closing ?  or will it still shut smoothly ?  , is it my imagination or the way the rear panel  / picture is ??, leaf spring shackles look at different angles to each other ?? , what is like  on the trunk floor ?? , see any kinks in the frame rail that side , was going to say any creases in the roof  , but the sail panel area looks strong &  all in-tacked, doubt the impact would travel that far scratchchin  scratchchin popcrn

The shop will have to measure it out to see if needs to be pulled or not.

TT's probably right judging from the pics supplied.

FYI - If you put most any car on a frame machine - almost all are tweaked to some degree... Shocked

I would DEFINITELY have the car measured. It will need a pull at least to square up the rear body prior to cutting anything off.
What they would charge would really depend what their labor rate is, but I would "think" it would be less than $500 to set up & measure and make a few pulls.

Yeah the door jambs are not quite as straight as they used to be pre-collision, although the doors close OK. And the rear frame is buckled in. It pushed it down and in. I'll post more pics later of the rail, but I think you all answered my question.

I'll have to get it to a body shop to have it pulled.

Thanks!

Another vote to get it professionally measured & pulled. 

And have that work done before you cut any sheemetal off the unibody, not after.

Remember the average response time to a 911 call is over 4 minutes.

The average response time of a 357 magnum is 1400 FPS.

If you want everything to line up and for the car to go straight down the road,please pull first before cutting and replacing any panels. Twocents

Got a quote from a reputable shop for 600. Just waiting for a call back when I can bring the car in.

I'll elaborate on the story later, but lets just say that single reservoir master cylinders blow.
