Unusual finishing touch around the rear panel?
Would be good to see a wicker work mini on the mini scene, anyone got one?
The wicker must be a bugger to do?!

Yes!

Some wickerwork / paint on this early Mk3... it's from some news footage about 'Carlos the Jackal' in the '70s...

Years ago I found a French web site which showed how it was done. It must have taken weeks to do just one car. These days you could probably get one of those car wrapping firms to print some/cut some on their laser guided equipment.

Renault sold a model of R4 called the Parisienne in the 1960s that had wicker panels.

You used to be able to buy fake sham-caning (wicker!) on a roll from the back pages of the old car mags, can't imagine what that looked like or what a nightmare it could have been to apply!

They did just that on the 90s Radford evocations. There was one down my way a few years ago and it didn't look too bad from a distance but was certainly not as nice as the hand painted versions.
