after a good wash and wax :D

my paint was pretty much shot, figured i would try waxing it to see if it helped any and WOW. huge differance. i didnt think it would do anything because my paint was pretty much flat. it worked wonders.




now a before and after (hood after, top before)








it looks really good now. the only problem about waxing it is that the dents are more noticable (i even found one i didnt know about )

That engine reminds me of the old days. Get some Moroso Blue Max ignition wires to spruce it up some more!
