well when i say to blow, i mean spend. I still have four years in the Navy, so anything can happen. with that being said, i may be absent in the forums for about a year or so, dont delete me please =)

My Economics teacher this past semester was in the Navy flying some sort of recon plane. He's in the reserves now and goes to Norfolk every weekend. Commander Knaff! Pretty cool!

also, i saw custom paint, like UV activated, Ghost pearl, incadensant, candy, matte... i've seen most these in games like need for speed underground, but im afraid to take the chance of it being awful

what really got my attention was the UV activated. Have you ever seen this paint up close, or seen it in action? also has anyone had any experience with fiberglass interior?

if i had 30k to "blow" it would be on paying off debt or paying down my house. 30k into a car been there done that lost all of it too.

your roof is a factory defect, you have to replace the entire fiberglass panel that is there, what it is, is the factory glue that holds on that panel was made funny, so after sitting in the sun and getting hot it bubbles up and will eventually come through leaving glue spots on your paint......gm had a technical bulletin writeup about it and actually covered it under the rust/body warranty, but denied mine when i took it in with the bulletin saying they had to do it....
