Paint is 5 years old and has the usual ware of small nicks and scratches and painter must have used cheap clear coat because a discoloring and flaking in a few areas trunk the worst. This car is a super nice driver not a trailer Queen. But absolutely no rust anywhere. This car runs drives and sounds absolutely awesome. If you want it to be perfect it would need a repaint. but gets all the high 5s and wins local car shows regularly. I know i have forgot a lot but if you have any questions just ask. The last 2 photo's are the new projects coming home. Thanks for looking.
