Mismatched panel colour thread.

Recommended Posts

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.

 

 

And I loved the look of FOADS old R18 when it had mis-matched wings, (cant find a pic)............... but he painted it.

 

Post some pics of the cars you've had or seen with  unfashionably opposing panel hues.

Give it ten minutes before there's a picture of a Polo Harlequin.

 

I remember in about the mid 80s, I was "watching the cars" at my grans house (her house overlooked the A610 junction at Cinderhill and I'd spent hours just watching traffic). I was so mortally offended by a car with mismatched panels I declared it should be "against the law" and people forced to paint them.

 

Edit: Ha! I was too late!

Harlequins don't count.  They are contrived and pathetic.  How could a child be so judgemental, cruel, oppressive AND wrong?!

The driver's door hinge failed on my Xantia so I changed it for one from the spares car I have in a different shade of red but with added dents and gaffer tape holding the window. Just a temporary measure of course about 18 months ago.

Was running around in this in the early '00s, never did get those black doors painted:

And there's this one of course:

Still like this a year-on from getting it back on the road and in regular use. Certainly won't be this year that it gets sorted. Even when I did attempt to have an odd panel painted to match it doesn't seem to have worked-out.....
