    Total Repaint or Just Spots?

    I have a 2001 Formula. The left front fender was replaced by the dealership that I bought it from in 2005 because it was cracked from the side air vents down, so it's not original. It has a Ram Air Hood, which I know isn't stock. It also needs to be repainted. There's also a couple of dime size dents on the passenger side... I could probably have them popped out by someone like "Dent Doctors". Like 96Firebirdformula, the clearcoat has peeled off of the driver's side quarter panel. Do I repaint just the quarter panel and the hood or the whole car? I don't want to screw up the originality of the car. Any opinions?

    If you want it all to match, paint the entire car.

    Well since it's black, which makes the new paint a lot easier to match, I would say just paint what's needed.

    If there were other issues throughout the whole vehicle, do the whole thing.

    if there are little spots in several diffrent places each entire panel that it is on will have to be clearcoated even if it is a dime sized spot, basically let them paint the whole thing where it isnt needed it will look a hell of a lot better when you get it back and just be a peace of mind that you know how old all the paint is
