but think of the amazing grip you'd have if you had to push the car out of a snow bank

Actually I am not that fussy. I don't care much for car shows and all I really want is to walk out the door after work and see it in the lot 100 feet away and think damn that is a cool car. It pretty much does that now so that should be an easy mark to hit.

I did a little more reading and watched some videos on plasti dip. Might be OK if you wanted to change the color every season or 2 and liked that flat nerf ball look. But there are plenty of miles after dark with bugs hitting it and a fair number of miles over 100 mph on the track to beat the front of it up. I would imagine single stage urethane white would be easy to clean and touch up and be a better choice.

I really appreciate all the input to this thread. You guys have been extremely helpful and I think you.

I rolled it out over the weekend to clean and check tire clearances. It was really good to hear it run again!

Banshee project overview version - YouTube
LOL yep that's my youtube channel I posted that video. I have the entire banshee project videos and have probably watched them 30 times. I crunched it down to that one to make it easy to show my folks when they thought I was nuts. I kind of forgot it was out there but that series spawned a lot of hot rod Miatas!
