Spend the weekend sanding and Bondo work. Clean the car real good then hand it over to the cheapest painter and you're golden. You can also buy a bunch of cans and have at it, that's what I did with my Rx7 and got good results. Just work your squeezing skillz

The only thing that bothers me on that van is the yellowed headlights. Go to the auto parts store and buy the stupid kit to sand them down so they appear clear again. Forget about the paint.

I tried it. They yellowed up a week later. Same with the Avalon. VW has a new kit out that sands and seals them but I haven't bothered again.

Floor it to keep up with the flow of traffic and loose stability?

Cup holders the size of 12 oz. beer can?

Paint that bitch 'looser blue', and invest in a "Baby on Board" rear window sticker, also, get a bigger dog for the front dash.

He's a replacement. The first one died after blowing the doors off of a Jetta and is buried in the back yard.
