My cr has since been repainted and I no longer have the coachlines...They 
sure did look like a stripe applied with a paint wheel or similar...If I 
recall they ended with a short point at either end. I think they were about 
half inch from the stainless trim.

the side of the body are typically indications that the car has been

Anyone else have thoughts on these added bits on the bottoms of the fenders?


I thought it was just a dodgy rust repair when I first saw it on my car; my
old RHD series 1 never had them and they do look a bit like an afterthought.

On the subject of coachlines can I ask some one with an original car or
access to the specs to tell me how far above the trim strips they were
painted? They look to have been painted on by an old fashioned coach painter
with a lining brush and a straight edge going by the few photos I have seen.
Some how I think this might be skill not found in the average body shop in
this day and age...
