Reconditioned bodies ?

Novel approach I guess still kinda pricey considering the Dynacorn alternative
Just showed up in the mini add bar https://autoworksparts.com/product/6...-reconditioned

I gave them a thought. I know they can do work and pricing " based on the condition" of your body but it seems like they are going after the cars that are in pretty bad shape. A littley pricey either way in my opinion.

Might be a good option for the high value / rare cars that need major body work?

Risky IMO.

They have your car and your money upfront.

Kind of like signing a 2yr cable agreement. The only guarantee is that you make 24 monthly payments.

Id read about image98's experience with R3 on the last few pages of his build topic before giving them a dime.

One thing great about getting older. A life in prison sentence is less of a deterrence

Be sure to read the Return Policy just in case something isn't right.

I wouldn't send a car to R3. He paid a ton of dough, the work was substandard then they hassled him when he tried to get his car back after about two years. They issued change orders without him knowing. They damaged new parts he gave them. They took about $30k from him and as of his last post a month or so ago still haven't released his car to him.

Here's the Yelp https://www.yelp.com/biz/r3-performa...s-yucca-valley

Here's his post from April https://forums.vintage-mustang.com/b...l#post10151910

It's pretty grizzly.

Ditto. Those R3 guys don't exist to me anymore. Not even on the radar.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

I wonder how many cars they actually "built". My guess is you can count them with less than 5 fingers.
