I have decided to try to fix this. I don't know if it was shipped this way or the fact I might have dropped it carrying in the house. Anybody know how I can fix it?
here's some pics

When me and IamMacPerson traded macs, UPS screwed up both the legs on our machines. They bent mine on the back top leg and it's popping out. On IaMP's his was sticking out on the front top leg.


You're best bet would to either be find a new case and swap everything or get a new wraparound (I think OrangeSVTguy has one).

Definitely shipping damage. If it didn't come in its original box or a spray in foam box, then chances are it would be damaged. I bought my G5 from Mac of All Trades and they sprayed in foam into a huge box for a custom mold. Kept it really safe and secure.

how exactly is the bottom connected to the case? Could I glue something or screw some sort of piece to go in between and hold it together?

I've had two of these broken in shipping. The damage is virtually unfixable I'm afraid :(.

My late 2005 DC 2.0 has ugly bent front handles as a result.

I tried removing all the parts and bending it back with all sorts of tools. No luck I'm afraid..

Couldn't I use a screw to keep it level so the side panel fits like it suppose to?

Yep. It's an involved process to change that over lol. Since there were some rivets that need to be drilled out and re-riveted. You can have it if you're near Cleveland.

I bought it from someone in Ohio I think it could've been Cleveland.

its a long drive from central KY. I think I rather stick with this. it kinda gives character to it. I do hope to buy another and possibly the old mac pro but that won't happen until the future.
