Sorry to disappoint you there, not only are the odd coloured bits going to be painted, but also some paint rectification will be done to other areas.

Ok Mrs Junkman. Youve had your fun. Now give the laptop back to Mr Junkman, whos catchphase "do not paint" has caught on strongly and become a pillar of this very forum.

Had it been a 407, all the airbags would have went off, the ecu would still be on fire and the turbo probably would have blown too for good measure.

Being a proper car, fixable with some actual tools, it lives to terrorise walls again

Patina on classic cars is ok but in my opinion a sharp coat of paint always looks so much better.

Matte black is grim unless it came matte black.

Junkman is right on a modern car like this (albeit 20 years old) especially one in such good condition it needs to be painted otherwise it just comes across as scrap, attracts the (unwanted) attention of the 5-0 and makes it a wholly unpleasant sight on the roads.

If the car were oozing old money shonkiness, I'd not paint it.

But the car is otherwise way to clean to wear mismatched panels.

It just looks ASBO.

Faded mid-20th century car for sale on eBay, seller mentions "could do with respray" = DO NOT PAINT

 

Modern* car with mismatched panels after crash damage = DO PAINT

 

It's quite simple.

As an aside, I once saw a Fiat Uno that had been given replacement panels in a different colour. It was red once but every bolt on panel was white. All it needed was a bit of white on the rear quarters. The roof would have looked fine in red

Oh, and wheeltrims. And a bent front numberplate. And shonky stickers.

Verdict: If I were the fuzz, I'd pull it over.

You'd save a lot of money if you'd adopt my approach to paint rectification. That is, to talk about doing it a lot but never actually do it.

I'm not doing so many things. Especially the ones I'm supposed to do.

So I decided to do something I'm not supposed to do to make up for it.

I don't doubt that.

My tame painter has long since learned to be accustomed to Junkmanish demands.

 

When I saw him today, he was busy with one of those Ovlov Cinderella coffins, you know what I mean.

I really was envious there for a second.
