Finally have the URQ back on the road

Post by JackG » May Thu 10, 2012 8:28 am

Last May I got rear ended on Reserve by some idiot on a cell phone. Thankfully I had a declared value on my insurance since the hitters insurance wanted to total the car. It sat in storage for months and it took some wrangling to get the insurance straightened out to pay. Anyway, John and the team at Action Autobody did a great job. Parts for these are hard to find and I am sure Action spent some hours on the phone finding the rear quarter panel and misc stuff. Here are the before and after shots.

I also have an 85 URQ that is in the final stage of a 3B transplant down in Colorado. It will join the 83 pretty soon up here.
