Mismatched panel colour thread.

This is me. Been like this since i got rear ended in December and I fixed it with junkyard parts. Original plan was to get it painted and replace the cracked rear lights but the combined cost would be more than the car is worth so now I just ignore it which works fine for me.

I'd love to think that somewhere out there to restore the balance of the universe is a negative Council Estate, a blue Volvo with a gold tailgate. The 405 estate looks good with the chin spoiler, Junkman should disregard his own advice and Do Paint and then it would look rather spiffing like some sort of fancy special edition.

Going to miss this little trooper too when it goes to its new home. This is one of my favourite pictures of it post-welding.

Thats the first picture I showed people at work when they jokingly ask if I've bought anymore cars yet.

 

Incidentally that question started as a joke. However my answer of "Yes!" is becoming alarmingly more common.

That ovloV looks just fine with the off-colour boot, but what the merry hell is that oversized B10M badge doing on there?

It's not an oversized B10M badge - that's the size they are when you stick them to the tailgate of a 740 estate.

 

I had a bag of about 15 of those badges and they landed more or less as we disposed of our last manual B10Ms so they were never fitted.

I agree, the saloon bumper looks much better than the estate one.

No pics I'm afraid but I'd  owned the Porsche 944 some months before I noticed half the panels were metallic black and half flat black. The shade match is good, i'll just have sell it on a overcast day!
