w116 wall art - the finale!

nathan:
I had this idea a few years ago when I wrecked a few 6.9s. I would pull the motors and all the bits, and sometimes get left with a body. The cars wrecked were generally rotten floors and other unrestorable cars before anyone gets too upset.  I hoped one day id have a garage big enough to fit a 116 on the wall, and that day arrived during the covid crisis.  so finally, I started. 

it took about one week, a lot of holes in a brand new rendered wall, a lot of cursing, and generally dangerous antics walking up a ladder with body panels.

the donor was 6.9 #1741 I think it was. admittedly, after I got the pieces from my folks to take to the new place, I must have grabbed the wrong front quarter. I cant believe ive wrecked two blue 6.9s!! tonight when I went to check for some bits, I realised id taken the wrong quarter. hence the colour was wrong!! argh, I thought someone must have just painted it the wrong colour. I might change it later but after all this time, im a bit depleted at the moment
