    Sounds as if the bodywork is out of kilter.

    So jigging it will measure all the distances and angles, and if they are out it will get gently pulled (using hydraulic rams) back into shape

    Any decent car body repairers should be able to do it.

    Make sure any repair work is carried out by a member of the VBRA - http://www.vbra.co.uk/find.asp
