I know the owner of this, but we don’t talk. He helps out at the garage that ruined my last Mercedes 190e, and he was quite comfortable watching me push it 2 miles home (alone) after a disagreement over repairs.

Still, looks gr9.

This was delightfully shonky. Rattle canned and brush painted, several different colours. The front wing had a load of unpainted unsanded filler on it, and the front bumper was held together by bracing the cracks with plastic brackets on the outside, held down with self tappers. 6ed5747b56931221c039c4a5a8618317.jpg

Mismatched panel on a show* car. This was FOTU so everyone was ignoring the XK150 and looking at this shonky 106 instead.

Take two identical glass fibre panels with a coloured gel coat.

 

Paint over one an identical colour and leave the other alone...leave both outside to weather for 30 years...

I have a sneaking suspicion that a bit more than a polish will be needed there!
