Now that is sage advice - again - wheels wheels wheels

I know I'd be spending whatever it cost to get it back to perfect.

That said, I'm sure buffing/polishing/paintless dent removal could remedy most of it for a good price.

Well, I hear drag racing is better than autox and cheaper LOL

I've already purchased some Performance Driving schooling here in ABQ at the local track. You use your own car. I'm hoping to be able to take it out on open track days at same place after.

I'm not a huge fan of living life 1/4 mile at a time. I like open tracking and some autox.

My car is not a boulevard queen, so it'll all be fine. I also wanna do an ST front swap in the spring, so I may wait for that to do paint touch ups on other parts of the front end.
