I have thought about this before but not worth the work.

What I've done to the car in the last 2 years:
All new brake lines and brakes
All new struts
Did the intake twice
Brand new ('07 ?) Grand Prix rims and 100k mile Hankook tires
Gutted the inside and cleaned everything
Replaced random other parts here and there

She'* got 293k miles and runs like a top. I've put the last 20k on her.

Rust is starting to take hold though, so I really only want to replace things that are absolutely needed.
