CALLING ALL BODY SHOP DUDES! Need advice

The new project Si i bought has a little problem...
The radiator support is a little buckled up to where my radiator and ac condenser hit the hood (im assuming)
Since im a cheap ass im lookin for an easy way to yank it back into place...
Word on the street is that it could be pulled back into place with straps and shit using my truck
I, of course, have no experience doing that and do not have straps to do so
Anybody have any experience doing this?!? Anybody have any time and straps to come help my un-experienced ass out?!?
It would be greatly appreciated!

dude you need a monkey bar... Its basically a metal broom handle on steroids that has a chain attached to it. the chain has a big hook on it and you just hook it where its in and use the bar as leverage to pull it back. i wouldn't try welding in a new core support without a frame rack or a tram. your shit will never line up again

use a come along or a ratcheting tie down. I'm assuming you need to pull down so find a tree or a post. If you have a long enough strap you can use a vehicle. Find somewhere on the car to hook it to then run the strap under a wheel to get it low. When you pull, it will help to tap the buckled up areas with a hammer while under tension. That is about all I can do from here.

i made the mistake on my si of jacking up the car by the rad support and it tweaked it pretty bad
once i forced open my hood i bent it back in to place with a few towels. small sledgehammer and a lil elbow grease
but all i wanted was for my hood to close good
the support is so damn flimsy on those
shouldnt be hard to fix at all
or if u get a new one all u gotta do is crack the spot welds and have someone weld it on for you for cheap
