Bodywork
All panels are free from dents and the shut-lines across the entire car look visibly correct and both doors close evenly.
Paint
The paint is in excellent visible condition. The only slight imperfections are as follows: a slight hairline crack in the paint on the passenger side lower part of the rear wing and slightly uneven paint on the inside lip on the lower part of the drivers door.
