It's horrible.
Why would you want to do that stuff? It will take a lot of money and time to take that sh!te off and put it back to how it should be. IMHO of course.

I've seen worse. Nothing that can't (relatively) easily be undone. May be an original bumper, but what's underneath that number plate light arrangement?

Everyone has taste, some more than others. I can't throw stones, with a roof which is more Southend than South Norfolk.
