    don't need to paint it. just mask off everything except the roof, wet sand the clear coat off with an 800 (use guide coat to help), and apply new clear coat. that's about it. quart of clear and hardener, 50 bucks or so.

    Plus at 89k you could have negotiated the fact you're due for a 2k or more dealer service. Of course you can do it yourself for much cheaper, but still a fair point. Hopefully he had the service done prior to you purchasing?
