take my 86 SS 8700 miles.. never titled till 2001
never hit, never anything other than the paint is 26 y/o and tired from lack of care.. it doesn't NEED or warrant a down to metal repaint..
as the paint is tired from the showroom rub down it got way tomany times.. that killed the paint..
not many are dumping 10k on a paint job on a 1500.oo -10k car..
and there are tons of these in the hobby. no matter if YOU don't do them
