The corrugated thing is the back end of a 2cv van, other 2cvs are going to be restored (mechanical only, keep in original paint) and one is a twin engined off road beast.

Either bodge it if it takes 2 minutes or do it properly which takes time, I don't see the point in doing half a job then doing it again, false economy. Plus if you do all jobs yourself, you know how it was put together and fault finding is so much easier. Also use high quality paints with a fan nozzle and spraying is so much easier.
