– Paint, could use a full respray if one is serious about bringing this into full Turbo x glory, overall its a great 10 footer, but there are various knicks and scrapes from the previous owner that yields the condition to be far from perfect. Especially the bumper now is fairly rough. Could use a PDR as well.
