Question I'm going to scrap my chassis, whats the best way to get rid of it?

As you guys already know, I'm going to scrap my D90 chassis for a galvy one. I'm thinking the best way to get rid of it is to post here and mabye someone would want it mabye and take it whole. None of its rusty, just tweaked to the left from the bulkhead outriggers up. Worse case scenario, I'll take a cutting wheel to it and turn it into 12 pieces or what not and take it to the scrap yard. Or?

Straighten it ... Galvanize it and give it to me.

Yeah I can cut them off for you. I'll cut enough material so you can weld the flaps on like those outrigger repair sections.

Not according to my body guy. He said its fucked. Or he's just being lazy. Why do you guys know someone here in LA that could straighten it out with the body still on? lol Also the front crossmember just behind the front bumper has a cracks in the weld seam on both sides from the tweak. Nothing serious, can be cut off, straightened then bead welded back on I'm sure
