    do what I am doing and give it a paint job. Autozone and a few other part stores (I actually bought from murrays autoparts) carry duplicolor painting systems. Dupicolor makes a primer filler, primer sealer, and final one stage top coat and reducers all for EXTREMLY cheap. They have like 5 or so colors to chose from, including silver, matalic blue, red, white, as well as a few other. I am going to go with white since white will hide imperfections in the body much better than any other color. The darker it is, the harder it is to make look good. Also, with my carbon fiber hood and soon to be black Konig Kolors (orange and white will look even worse then what it does now lol) I think that it will look pretty good. I was going to go with championship white, but when I went to Sherwin Williams, I was quoted 250 a gallon for just the paint. The autozone "fleet white" costs 35.99 a gallon. Easy choice on a car that I won't have for very long.

    i forgot to add this:

    last night i had to leave the car at my job and take the van home for a delivery this morning. tell me why someone decided they were gonna steal my AFTERMARKET TAPE PLAYER, and then decided not to and just left it hanging in the drivers seat. they did, on the other hand, walk away with maybe 2 screwdrivers?!?!? good haul right? jackasses, if they were to open the glove box they would have gotten my discman, but no, they took screwdrivers instead. people these days...

    So far I have sanded down the the paint that is on there, and today masked everything. Masking take FOREVER.

    I rode in a boy of mines with a built 302 in his miata, it was freakin scary, you should do that. AND put the rainbow racing stripes, then enjoy the look on the vette guys face when the manlove-miata walked him at a light.

    well, i got an offer for $500 yesterday, so if you can do better...

    the only problem with the car is the paint and the top. it runs good, the interior is in good shape except the drivers seat has a rip in it. 145,000mi. takes $20 to completly fill up the tank at about $2.40/ga
