          The momement I saw the shiny paint I knew it was going to be bad, didn't expect it to be THAT bad. I know by Lamborghini standards the Espada isn't worth that much, but that much bog on a $200k+ car? That's concrete overshoes territory.

                at least they wont have to paint strip it.

                years ago i worked for a truck refinishing joint that got the cotract to do a color change on the Chubb Security vehicles from white to yellow for the new owners.
                anyway some of the rivets holding the panels on would be fucked so we would drill out and replace as necessary. i drilled one on a truck ad water started pissing out of the hole for about 60 seconds. must have had a good 2L in there. waited till it all came out and banged another rivet in there. that what you get when you agree on a fixed price i guess

                      just why? all the bits are there, just in the wrong order. I could understand if it was an OEM part and they accidentally pulled both sides off at the same time. the mind bottles...

                          Was going to pull you up on Split pin. /Cotter pin

                          Ive allways used cotter pin as on ye olde bicycle cranks that you tighten up with a nut to pull the pin in tightly...

                          ..and as a kid used to take chunks out of ankles if you put them in from the wrong direction

                          But appears yanks call a split pin a cotter pin... Weirdos...

                          'A cotter is a pin or wedge passing through a hole to fix parts tightly together. In British usage cotter pin has the same meaning, but in the U.S. it refers to a split pin. Typical applications are in fixing a crank to its crankshaft, as in a bicycle, or a piston rod to a crosshead, as in a steam engine. Wikipedia'

                                I was going to do that but managed to not even look it up.

                                Not sure what's wrong in Mizones picture, the split end isn't bent in the preferred method, is it because it's twisted in the hole?
