    I think you’re right David, it looks good from afar but has body filler on several areas, the driver side rear body seam is not visible, you can see one fire extinguisher bolt hole on one inside pic and covered on driver side body pic. Little high priced for the condition, although looks good, but maybe for a lower price.
