Shiny like new ‘unboxed’ after 3 months, unrecognizable to the naked eye
The skill of Vietnamese carmakers is always appreciated, especially the welding mound paint array when turning deformed cars back to their original state.

After that, the chassis was also repainted to the original black.
The car has gradually been shown after putting up the main parts.
The interior of the car was also rebuilt with almost all the details that had to be replaced.
At this stage, it was difficult to realize that the car had been in a serious accident before.
