Looks good. Why paint it? That is clean looking.

Painting that car will cost a lot more to make it black than just a repaint. To do a color change, the engine bay and all the door interiors would need to be resprayed so no blue is left.

okay got ya. i'm going to keep it blue then i think. i was considering painting it black because on the front bumper the paint is peeling. the rest of the car is pretty clean as far as paint so I think maybe I'll just get the front bumper repainted. ha i kinda liked the blue anyways
thx friends! excited! first modification is prob going to be tint or rims


(OH YEAH. some of the chrome is yellowing hardcore so that's why i was thinking about repainting it too. you cant see it in the pic but when i chicked out the car in person i saw it and was bummed. any suggestions about to do? paint the yellowing chrome? )

There is this cool stuff called Plasti-Dip that a lot of guys here are in love with. Maybe look up some of the threads and get some ideas from them.

Impala SS wheels would look good. Police steeliness would also look pretty good.

The yellowing chrome is actually a layer of plastic on top of the chrome, it's a bitch, but you can peel it off.

What did you end up paying, if you don't mind me asking? It is in incredible shape.
