Re: [T3] Paint

I can imagine, I'm actually thinking I'm going to repaint because I'm NOT selling her. It was one of those things were I was either I sell
her as is or I get off my ass and fix her up some.

This is my first old car so I'm learning as I go on how to "restore" things and what things I can do myself and what things I can't. Fortunately she's a good car so I'm not tasked with tons of things to fix up.

The one thing that really irks me is when a seller will repaint the car
prior to the sale, thus using that action as justification for a higher
selling cost. 100% of the time that I've witnessed such an action, the
paint job is cheap in every sense of the word (over-spray (esp. on seals),
orange peel, bubbling, fade, uneven coloration, "new" color outside but
stock color on inside, etc.) and in just a couple months the car begins to
look like crap. It makes for a more laboring job for the new owner as
well (upkeep, repaint).
