Default help!, shell doesnt fit into car.

I own a ntc3 rtr+ and i just discovered the shell doesnt fit into the car, the left side of the body which has a hole for the exhaust pipe doesnt fit perfectly, instead the hole went slightly forward. it sounds weird but my prediction to this problem would be.

1 - my shell is outta shape, it may happen because i kept it in my school bag overnight and maybe it was pressed causing it to went outta shape someway.

2 - my chasis is dented or bent, the car had 2 accident without the shell's on. one time it stalls and hit me at my thigh(i was sitting on the ground) and another time it hit a slope curb causing it to jump off and land back to the ground.

3 - a good reason for a new car, maybe?

i,ve tried hundreds of time trying to get it fit again, i've strip the front body post together with the bumper plate just in case it wasnt perfectly straight to fit the hole in the bodyshell but the problem still persist.

come on guys, help me out here. im really clueless, shud i strip everything on the car to see if there's anything dented or bent apart from the chasis?

my question is, did the body ever fit correctly when you got the car? If yes, then i do believe something on your car is damaged, if not, then the holes were never cut perfect on the body in the first place.

If your car is new and you never fit the body onto the car, simply cut the pipe opening in the body a little larger. If you ran the body previously you may have bent the stinger.

The stinger is the small length pipe at the end of the pipe,exhaust outlet.
