    Cave paintings - post your pics!

    One of the things I find most amazing about our cars is the hand-built nature. Every car has its own personality. I've done some looking around the internet and have only found a few isolated owners who have posted anything about their cave paintings. I think it would be really neat to get a bunch of them in one place to compare and discuss.

    I'll go first, but mine are sadly not that interesting and even difficult to read. A few numbers (38, 025061/20L) and what look like a few signatures but I can't make them out. Also the now-incorrect lock code, not pictured (was on the underside of one of the lips)

    Eventually I hope to look under some of the other panels, but not until they have to come off for something repair related

    Post your pics!

    You can draw your own conclusion on the first one...

    This was on the inside of my LFF. I found it during one of my detailing sessions.
    I believe it to be a DMCH cave painting since mine was remanufactured....maybe the only documented one? Anyway, I removed it so this pic is all that remains. It's up in the air about what it read "F%^k this one", or "this DMC". The drawing itself is either a middle finger,.... or a rocket ship.

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Unfortunately no.

    I've tried "13 Dery," "13 Deny," "13 Devy" and then "i3" derivations, even using "sexy"

    It was probably an inside joke for someone down the assembly line. Perhaps there are more clues behind other panels or under my headliner which I havent checked.

    I love these. I wish mine were more interesting. Michael, how did you find yours without removing the panel? I wonder if there's anything to see there. I also want to look under my passenger side headliner, but don't want to break all the fir trees like I did on the driver's side. Not until I get my new headliners, anyway

    Keep em coming!
