that should have been a new panel job & not a poverty isopon effort.

Im all for cost effective motoring, but throwing chump change at a nice benz like that is totally absurd.

I hope you can look the new owner in the eye when you come to sell it.

If there was ever a reason to have a car HPI'd and looked over by a tech, then without doubt, this is it.

congrats on fully annihilating a nice benz.

Would in some cases new panels been better even removing them to beat them back into shape to minimise the amount of filler to be used?

Some advice for anyone who is buying a car, run a magnet in a hankey (so not to scuff the paint) over the body if you think there is filler.

true, thats good advice if your buying an old mg. Running a magnet over the skin of a 'modern' benz is a not the job. Strange? perhaps.

would i walk into a benz dealership and wap out a magnet...

i doubt it.

I would hope anything I got from a benz dealership would not have filler in it or enough to justify doing that.
