Ah, yes... it looks good overall - I've kept it in good shape, and waxed it a few times every year, but like an older person, when you get closer you start to see all of the wrinkles. I have a LOT of minor swirls and scratches, and the clearcoat is even starting to come off on the roof along the door seams. So I was thinking if I get the entire thing painted, it would do some good. I am going to do the underside with rust proofing (the marine paint) as I am finding a few spots near the seams in the frame.

i know sad that nothing has been done yet. soon enough ill have an intake, exhaust, new brakes, new wheels, and tinted windows. there really isnt a lot to do to this car though. it has everything you could want and tons of power. the intake exhaust and tune will make it crazy to me.
