Default Minor body work,to fix or not to fix.....

I'm trying to decide if I shoulf ix up all the little imperfections in my car now or wait a while till I get some $$$ and get it repainted too. Its not in bad shape but the littl chips and things are ugly. Its a daily driver with 71k on her. If I wait a year or so, I could do the work, paint it, and restore the interior. Whaddya think???

Put the money into what you truley need because the exterior is going to get a few more marks I'm sure before your done adding things. It could realy get expensive doing the repairs twice.

I've started to look at the imperfections on mine as well (it was a daily driver for the previous owner).

I've decided that I'm going to wait and fix the minor stuff up, save some major $$$ up for a repaint and weatherstripping.

Until then, keep it clean and shiny as possible.

Ken, since like me, you drive it a lot, wait until you get the other things done. I got so many dings and chips, I'm waiting till it's time for paint before I fix everything.

Just think, if you get another chip now, it won't hurt as much as if the car were new or just redone.
