My car got rubbed down with the ooey gooey clay today. No car I've ever owned has ever been this clean. Considering a full paint correction now tbh

Have the shop take paint thickness readings first. You need to know how much clear is still on the car after all the years. If it's thin I would just think about coating alone.

I can get that done. The entire front end, bumper, hood, fenders, and side mirrors were repainted due to rock chips by the previous owner more than ten years after he bought the car. My friend did say the front looked like someone who didn't know what they were doing tried to buff it at some point. The only reason I'm considering a full correction is hoping that the age difference in the clear coat front to rear is what causes the obvious color difference in certain lights.

God willing. And hopefully my car is good to go by then. No reason that everything I want to do won't be done... but kinda need the race shop for my alignment and another shop for my ball joints... All of the control arms are sitting in my carport redneck style.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

I've always like the look without centercaps. That's the only visual model I've done to my car besides :tints:
