Photos lie, but body gaps generally don’t. I’ve previously pointed out that the beltline trim on the right side is not straight: it rises toward the front of the right front fender. But now seeing a true side view, I can’t help but focus on the gap between the right door and the right front fender. The gap starts large and grows wider as you move downward. This tends to reinforce my view that the right front corner of the car is not where it should be. I’m guessing the front of that fender is 1/2” higher than it should be, which implies that the right side of the nosepiece is also 1/2” higher than it should be.

 

And painting a car with a bent body suggests that other shortcuts may have been taken. My gut reaction — and I’ve certainly been wrong many times previously — is “lipstick-on-a-pig”!

 

Regards,

 

Steve
