And unless you start with a pretty pristine example as a base (sacrilege!) you are basically building a car that's going to rot from the inside out because those panels are just going to trap dirt and moisture.
really now? is that why we have problems with e30's rotting in behind the fender heels? behind the wiper cowl, inner upper front fender area and oh wait the one behind the gas flap and fuel return res.

This is a design; it can always be refined; those areas should be addressed. but I guess they were thinking the same thing when the built the e30 too huh?
