Borrow or rent a Porta power and easy it back into shape. Some hammer and dolly work and you should be good to go.

Thanks for your concern, nothing went wrong, worked exactly as intended. I "pulled the bumper a bit" (as stated) The bumper bolt is now free from what was shielding it. So now when I am ready I can pull the bumper off and begin standard methods of pulling the wrinkles out.

I do have a good reason to buy a Porta power now!

Or...I do have several body shop connections and may see if I can get it pulled to the point where I can R&R the quarter, save me lots of energy. I am in no hurry.
(well, I have to keep telling myself that)

White on red ftw. I feel like that's one of the harder color combos to find.

You're a brave man, I've seen 242's totalled by small QP dents that could be easily kicked out to passable.

Its a combination of boredom and it was in my price range. All the straight 242 (in my price range) were beat.
Obviously this one is beat (now) but previous it was well cared for. So is it worth fixing?
Jury is still out.
I like it so I'm willing to use up some of my not so abundant energy to find out.

Easy fix when ready. Talk to your body guy friends to get it started correctly.

My vote is to leave it volvo and make it turbo powered. A+T or turbo engine and those lighter early cars are a lot of fun with just some modest poiwer increases.

Yeah - be careful Brad. When mine was wrecked a long time back, the box section that holds the bumper shock was damaged - not fun to replace. 17 years ago, finding replacement 2 door rear quarters was an adventure.

Didn't 83GLT have NOS quarters for sale? I think he's out of the country for a while but I'm sure lurking on here.

Good deal, just advising caution. A friend of mine died a vegetable two years after just such an encounter, when things didn't work out 'exactly as intended'.

Take it easy and have fun.

Yep, that sort of thing scares me more than anything else.
Had just picked this up when I got your email.
The guy I bought it from said the glass shop didn't know how to reinstall that trim.

You just need to sell me those door panels..they would look killer on my car

With all of the 240s that were made and many people wanting to keep their cars as OE as possible one would think a company like VP Autoparts would produce the necessary clips to reintsall the stainless trim. Maybe we should write to them?

Fixed and don't know why the would since the rubber surround part is NLA as well.
