Little bit on the top of the front bumper cover (beneath the headlamps and grill) where the white paint is seperated from the soft plastic. Also a little bit where the rocker panel meets the body at the passenger side rear door.
Next wax-whorage session I'll clean that area up and touch up the paint before the rusts gets a foothold.
Furture plans for the car (in no particular order)
1.) Change the instrument panel to add a factory tach along with any additional gauges from that package (would be nice to have an ammeter and oil pressure gauge..me and the idiot lights don't get along too well)
2.) Change the rims from steel 15" to factory alloy 16" rims when it'* due for new tires. It'* still rolling on the original Uniroyal radials it was sold with (dealer added along with a 5th one for a full size spare.)
3.) Add a supercharger to the 3800. Been looking at ebay for an appropriate donor motor. So far an auction for a 2000 GTP motor looks promissing. I've always considered adding a supercharger to my '87 420 Camaro, but with the price of gas going ballistic, playing around with a blower on this car makes more sense. Also, the car is perfect sleeper material. It screams "Old Folks" as it sits. Making it capable of blowing the doors off the local ricers is appealing
4.) Tighten up the ride a little. It has a very quiet ride, but corners like the Titanic. Was kinda fun to run it through some corners till the back end broke loose. Didn't do anything nasty, just squealed as the back tires broke traction and drifted. Huge amounts of body roll though. Found a shock tower brace on a Buick in the local junk yard, which I've cleaned up, repainted, and added to this one. Need to look a little at suspension bits. Heck I don't even know if it has sway bars on it now.
