Red Roadster needs fixing!

Fellow Houston Fanatics,

After driving in Houston for 12 years, my time finally ran out. Yesterday morning driving towards the medical center on S. Shepherd, I got rear ended! Looking any references on repair shops that will work/repair SSR's. Any help would deeply appreciated.

Hope you were not hurt. That little green thing got it a lot worse then you did. Good luck.

Red told that little green turd; "Get off me punk!" 💪

Hope you can get it repaired soon! 😉

These guys sell and service SSRs they may be able to make the repairs and have better access to parts.

Wishing you all the best.

Thanks for the replies, but I'm not hurt. My pride might be. Still check out different repair places. North Freeway Hyundai doesn't have a body shop.

It might be good to start looking for parts. Cleveland Pick a Part usually has quite a few.

Mine hit a deer a couple of years ago. I was lucky and we were able to bolt on the repairs. I did go with Eric's hood though.

Good luck.

I would think with their years of experience working of R's they would have had to use a body shop at one time or another. It would seem to me they would be willing to give you a name of a good body shop.

Looks like you live in Houston. There are a ton of owners in that area. Just reach out to some of them for help and advice on where to repair. An old school shop can get parts and fix the rest. Don't expect a dealer or new parts only shop to help you. Good luck.

Strange, I went on a tour with the General Manager there and when He took Me to the back of the Dealership, there were several SSRs in the shop being worked on. Lots of body work going on and painting. Could it be they only work on the ones that they get in for their Lot and no others??

Might need to talk to someone else there that has more juice or at least ask them to recommend a place.

Dennis,
Last year an SSR owner came to one of our Permagrin Breakfasts that was a general manager for several Service King Collision shops in the area. He said they have worked on SSRs. They have a location in Conroe that I know has received good reviews locally here. I cant personally vouch for their work but its worth a shot to call them. I cant find his card but Ill keep looking and PM the info if I come up with it.
Service King
12645 TX-105, Conroe, TX 77304

serviceking.com

(936) 202-4268
