Smile chassis

Hi all

Finally had a day off from work. So I thought I would sort out my garage and put most of my moulding/panel away for safekeeping. But this got me thinking. Now I know the origins of the 246 cascu body shell and panels and thought about offering them up to the deon 206 shell. Some surprises lads.
1. The engine cover is identical in size/width and length- except 206 has 6 vents.
2. The boot again is exactly the same width but some 70mm longer.
3. The bonnet is exactly the same width and the top and shape at the scuttle is identical. BUT it is 20mm shorter! Is this to compensate for the deon droopy nose? meaning deon bonnet was lengthened?
4. Door skin is different at the A post suggesting the 246 window screen is wider. Body swage line in door skin 2 inches lower than deon and door skin also 15mm longer than deon. Rear profile almost spot on with deon.
Funny comparing the two cars
