a while ago i crashed my car in wet weather (100% my fault, no one was hurt). the side of my car looked like a can opener was taken to it, i got it towed to work and fixed it in 2 hours with new panels although they were different colour as no wreckers had red ones :(

finally bought some red ones polished them up and put them on. i also painted the grey stripes black, hope u like.

Was it just guard damage and bonnet damage?
