You can not possibly tell me that this is worse than leaving it as it was found...
I notice the rear window has two ribs inside and a sharper profile on the inside too.
Yes, that is the correct pattern, in fact that panel is one of the areas that was still intact when the car was found. The team managed to save that piece:wink:
I think probably a lot of the bottom section was saved, but the top part re-constructed...?
Even the inner-widow panel is different with a much more defined edge :?
I rather doubt they just glanced at one blurry photo and then bashed out a panel that looks a bit like it. You can be sure they have many pictures of how it originally looked and have studied them very carefully indeed. And the same applies to you or I making any kind of judgement based on one single photo of the finished article in a different paint finish. And not forgetting that these cars were all hand made one offs, so a certain amount of variation would be present between the different cars in any case.
I agree with you to some extent, I cant decide which I find personally more interesting the before or after car. I know it was ugly :lol: but I am still undecided. To me it was 'historical art' before, and now it will be a car again. I can only think that is the better outcome.
You cannot call this car a restoration, hardly anything of the car remains. 😳
