Default this pissed me of

So my truck is bagged and bodied. And the front frame will not stay welded. So I took it to a shop and they said 200 bucks. I went ahead and let them do it, and told them to line the Fenders up and it will be fine. So I didn't check the weld untill today, and they did great but they took the fucking body drop out and welded the frame straight across, where its even all the way around.

+1. Holy crap. Would they honestly look at it and say "hmmm, wonder why the frame is like this right here. Has to be broke, lets put it back to normal"

Was it properly gusseted? How did they put it back to normal and the front still fit right?

How did they remove the Z from the frame and leave the core support intact? If they removed the Z then the fenders, radiator support, radiator would no longer fit unless they sectioned your radiator support and put a shorter radiator in it (which I seriously doubt). Any before and after pics?
