Peter, try to convince a paint shop of that who have never seen a P6....! Was so happy to find a shop even willing to respray a noninsurance/older than 1990 car! Too many flat 'No's" from every other place I had tried.
^^ Been there, tried that - not just paintwork either. I tried to find a machine shop/suspension shop to remove the old ball joints and reinstall new ones on the front swivel pillar - one place I was still walking across the car park when the guy came to the door and just shook his head.
