PER­FECT PAN­ELS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

Age and ne­glect lead to scuffs and dings in those cur­va­ceous pan­els, and front-end stone-chip­ping is com­mon, so ex­pect pre­vi­ous paint rec­ti­fi­ca­tion. Also check for peel­ing lac­quer re­quir­ing a costly re-spray. The bumpers are prone to pick­ing up scrapes and as the mount­ings can rot through you’ll want to be sure they are se­curely at­tached. Dam­aged light units and ex­te­rior trim are other both­ers, but there’s a healthy sup­ply of sec­ond­hand parts. New bits are ex­pen­sive how­ever with a front wing nigh-on £1000, so be wary of scruffy projects.
