Don't forget, UV will affect the paint on your car.

If the car set's outside 24/7 it's just that much more of a chance the sun has to work in the painted surfaces. (not to mention the interior)

ex. Your once nice, shiney silver car will change to grey primer. No shine, no gloss, no nuttin.

Haha you know me doin the LSD Guess my eyes are going bad at 16 already lol. It is stock color, but in the summer I can't decide about doing a full black metallic paint job, or repainting this color to cover up the many scratches and putting black racing stripes. What do you guys think? I just use some soap and such on it today too cold for wax ( only 38 degrees F!) but it looked terrible after the wind and rain storms we had so i thought today would be fine.

I'm getting a brickyard spoiler before that and a new front bumper thats lower RKsport so it looks more like the nascar series. You think the same black as trunk pannel or a gloss color?

if anything your top of the vehicle, (hood, roof, and trunk), would lighten up do to the clear coat fading over the years if its parked outside. a good wash and wax every three or so months would help eliminate that
