    I think what he means by "original paintwork" is there isn't any other sap daft enough to paint a car that colour :rolleyes:

    EDIT I was wrong, he sold another Pink car

    in his defence - he doesn't actually say how much of the paintwork is original and which bit of it is original :)

    Now, fair's fair.. You must appreciate the work that's gone into that car..

    It looks very neat, clean and well executed.. Maybe not to everyone's taste....

    That saxo has to be appreciated from the work gone in point of view. Im sure the work alone to fit those wheels would have been exhausting to say the least. The "Flushing" or smoothing of the bodywork also seems to be immaculate and although many people dont like this, i for one would not drive a car like this...part of me always has respect for the imagination, skill, hard graft, and im sure empty pockets just to produce something like this.

    I believe if the lights are removed the car may still be driven in daylight and indeed will pass the MOT.

    BUT

    Should the conditions require lights you are stuffed!!
