According to NETransit, 3630, 3650, and 3693 have been shipped to Alstom to be used for parts. The cars are going to be scrapped there when the program is complete.

3602, 3703, 3711, and 3719 still remain at Riverside. It's been decided that 3719A/3711B may be overhauled at some point at Alstom, but it doesn't look like it's guaranteed to happen anymore. This means that 3602, 3703, and 3711A/3719B will probably be scrapped at Riverside soon.

Per NETtransit, 3707 has been taken out of storage at Alstom and is going to be overhauled. 3711/3719 is no longer a candidate for overhaul and will be scrapped eventually.

3609 has entered service, meaning that the 3600 series rebuild program is finally complete. After the remaining 8 3700s at Alstom enter service, the entire program will finally be complete.

Additionally, 3602, 3630, 3650, 3679A/3636B, and 3693 have been scrapped at Alstom.

How bad are the car bodies of 3711/3719 or is the T isn't trying to dump more money into the rebuild program?
I love the smell of Diesel Fuel in the Morning!! ;)

3711 has a large dent in its roof and 3719 has significant frame damage. The cars were probably repairable, but it was decided that 3707 would be the best candidate for rebuild instead.

This begs the question: why not mate the B-end of 3711 with the A-end of 3719?

This was considered, but they decided not to.
