It's starting to go rusty- the paint is all porous. I really need to sort it so it doesn't dissolve...

I was disappointed that the snow killed my WBOD sticker.  Bonnet is staying faded Oyster for the forseeable, but the orange door will be going away in a few weeks.  Am rather enjoying it having a good side and a bad side at the moment while I work through the repairs and repainting.

^ I'm pretty sure Metros had either black, or utterly ruined front wings as standard. I don't believe a body-coloured, rot-free option was ever available. 

Brilliant little cars at the time, and no wonder BL sold masses of the things. I still reckon mine handled better than a Mini, and that's saying something amazing considering BL built them on a 50p budget.

Miss my one. Best handling little car I've ever owned, and that's including the Cappuccino. Between the handling and the noise from the gearbox it was downright addictive on a twisty road - even with the non-servo brakes.

Hey, did that thing used to run on steel wheels? Seeing the pic of it in Brighton (next to Pete and Gary's Panhards, no less) reminds me I photographed one identical to that in probably 2008 (?), I will have to dig out the photo!

It came from Endeavour Motor co.  Brighton,when new . Elderly lady owner (  though she  wouldn't have been elderly when she bought it new ) gave it to her chiropractor when she gave up driving . She had it 6 months and sold it to me .   It did have  steel wheels ,  that pic was the  1st classic meet in Brighton  2010 ? 

 

I was just driving past ,saw all those cars .....so I just parked on the end ! And it generated a bit of interest, tho I think I wasn't particularly welcome  in a mundane Fiesta L    :-( . A guy in a TVR Griff chatted to me  though and said he liked it .

 More irritation ..lower door is darker yellow :angry008:

There seems to be less and less of this kind of thing these days.  Are there any shitters still running a car with different coloured panels.
 
I loved the look of C.D.C's Rover:

But he painted it.

 

You are grossly exaggerating this.
What he really did was rattle can the mismatched blue wings with mismatched yellow paint.

Nah, it doesn't, really. The two colours are actually harmonising way to well.

I shall take some pics once that sun has set a bit.
