Project 2002: Rusty McRustface

Turns out the little 02 is a wee bit more corroded than we initially thought and the original plan to replace just one of the frame rails has somewhat expanded a little.

You can even spot hints of the original Golf Yellow paint underneath. Guess these panels have not seen daylight for the past 45 years.

On the bright side, the bodyshop is (surprisingly) able and more importantly, willing, to undertake the surgery necessary to get it put as right as possible. Colour me impressed and thankful! Although I reckon my wallet will probably not be as happy.

In other news, since it’s being reworked much more extensively, time to pick a new colour. Maybe I’ll keep it a secret first.
