40' Gooseneck trade for 36' Goosneck repair

I thought I would post here because y'all know people, Or might be interested yourself.
I have two trailer and both have a bent front A-frame ( neck ). The first one which I would like repaired is a 36' Big Tex dovetail. The second which is payment for the work is a 40' Goosneck Float.
The Big Tex needs the neck and complete A-frame cut off and a new one built and welded on. I am talking about all the steel from the front of the bed forward.
The 40' white gooseneck looks like it could be heated up and bent back into place, But i am not a metal expert. These trailer carry allot of weight so I am not sure how strong reshaped steel is
If y'all know anybody or are interested yourself, Please feel free to post or email me. There would be cost to you as far as the material to repair the 36'

Thanks for reading.
Bryan

One thing is you can not heat that back up and reshape it. Well ok you can but it will loose strength. Every time you heat metal and bend it, the metal looses strength.

So they both would need to be cut and welded.

By the way it looks, someone loaded the trailers incorrectly to much tongue wieght.
