Modern times?

Sometimes the "modern" car needs fixing. This one was built in 1996 so you can't really call this Rover modern anymore, but as it's very reliable and pleasant to drive, it was an easy decision to fix the dents when a careless driver damaged our wing and bumper.
 Getting a new wing and headlight seemed like a good start.
 Of course the new wing was a different colour, so it was painted using a spray can.
 Taking the car apart was very easy. No rust and lots of plastic.

 The whole front bumper needs to come off to replace the headlight.

Reassembly was easy too, but to get the gaps almost right took several tries. Job done!
