<p>My Brother In Law got this off a skip &amp; asked me if i wanted to see if i could bring it back to life, it is a modern "ornament" but I like a challenge, with a lot of bending &amp; straightening a bit of yellow paint &amp; some added rust colour  I have hopefully given this a new lease of life.</p>

That looks like an amazing yard ornament. My wife has a couple Pick Up trucks she likes to decorate at Christmas or in the fall. Old ratty rusty Ford and a Dodge. At least that is what I think they are supposed to be.

This is a task but I am sure your up to the challenge. Use all your talents on this one for sure. Watching with interest.

Looks mostly bashed out into position. Are you going to fine tune it or paint it where the paint is missing?
For what it was it is a much better yard ornament now. Good Job.

That's as far as I can go with it , I mixed up some yellow & added rust look to it , a couple of seconds crushing in a skip caused a lot of damage but it is straight enough now to see it is a VW

It is large, maybe 1:10 scale?
It sure will look good in the Garden.
