My Z157 Omega looks like it has been pelted, from a gritter on the middle of the bonnet and in line with the bonnet on the roof.  The wifes Jungle Green Omega, hasn't moved for a while but no damage to the paintwork. Both were under snow and ice at the same time.  I assume the pot marks, are down to frost getting in.

Good job got some bodywork to do. Might get car sprayed in solid colour, instead of metalic. Easier to repair and patch.  :)

Moonstone? My last Omega estate was that colour. Not as glamorous as Rubens red or Polar? Blue, but a good smart colour nonetheless 8)

My beloved Zeke is Moonland or Moonstone or something. Love the colour, hints of 6boue in the sunlight.

My silver car had the same rash on the bonnet & in a line over the roof & down the boot lid. Was it something in the  screen wash  :-\
After the HG let go I  sold the car as spares or repair  :(
