Just to set the record straight for everyone who is wondering what happened to this and that on Larry the Panda.

The vehicle was completely stripped down, windows,lights,bumpers,everything.
It was then sent to a Ferrari approved bodyshop and every single piece of rust was removed.There was not much rust and I had 2 new doors fitted, The cost of this ran into thousands of pounds.
The rear quarter that had a bad previous repair was all sorted professionally and I have all the photos of the work carried out as it went along.
So all I want to say to everyone who is being so negative about the car is I spent lots of time and money and effort restoring this Panda to keep it from going to the scrappy so please try and say things a little more positive rather than running it down.
If you had spent as much time and money as me on a Panda you would also feel irritated when no one on the forum has had one decent thing to say about it.
So in a nice way chaps if you can't say anything positive about keeping another Panda on the road then please don't say anything.
We are all meant to be enthusiasts on the forum not critics.
Oh and by the way there is a full set of wide mudflats in the boot that haven't been put on yet.
and the last MOT you will see went through with NO advisories.
Cheers guys have a good evening.

I don't think anyone has been negative following your restoration. This thread is very old dating back to when it first came on our radar. Sounds like you've done lots of good work and hope you get what you want for it

Re: Another Agadir Blue Sisley [ J277 LRY]

Glad the damage has been sorted properly - the listing doesn't say & it was only a question - not unreasonable when someone wants 3k more than the usual top money for a Sisley. Most of these things are covered up by dodgy sellers - the listing doesn't mention it & no one knew it was anyone on the Forum (as it hadn't been offered here to the enthusiasts).

The flaps were tongue in cheek as denoted by (stop being so sensitive - anyone else would realise that if that's the worst we could see it's not exactly bad!) but if you have them it should be on the listing surely - an enthusiast will expect them (the correct Sisley ones are very hard to find if missing) at that sort of money.

Anyway glwts - I think the listing needs a lot more information, but that's just me.

Re: Another Agadir Blue Sisley [ J277 LRY]

well done on getting all that work done to it. The reason we have these threads is so that we have as much information as possible about the pandas that come up for sale

as you said we are all enthusiasts and we want whoever buys the car (as they will probably be on the fiatforum before or after they purchase it) to have as much information as is possible on their car to help with restoration, running and maintenance.

I have had 3 pandas and there is a glut of threads and information on all 3 of them, I have referenced them myself. only last night I was able to give the owner of a car I used to own his paint code when he was away from his car as I had all the information set aside

I do get why you feel that way, but in all honesty no harm or ill will was intended.

GLWS it looks like a beautiful example, I remember it coming up for sale years ago and lusting after it. probably on this thread now that I think about it!
