    @jensen04 I upload pics of the rocker and front bumper. Pcar says they'll go live tomorrow AM.
    I had the rocker repaired and painted. looks really good.
    I didn't wanted to have the front bumper repainted above the air diffuser so you'll see a couple touch-up spots . Have to be looking close to notice them.
    overall, the car is amazing!

    @jensen04 Also, not all the paint is factory original. Really difficult to find all original that looks this nice. I can tell the doors had been painted at some point.

    @DaBigKahuna1969 Thanks for the questions. I’ll post a couple close up paint pics when I’m back with the car.
    Regarding oil, I had the leak fixed in April as it was prevalent when I bought the car. There are no drips. Described in the write up. I have the receipts

    Could you please post a picture of the small rock chip repairs and the rocker repair? Other than those two items, the body is excellent? Thx

    Nice looking car. Interesting where the transaxle car values have been changing the last 5 years. Love them all. The 924S-SE with its 160hp and M030 pkg is a rare sight now a days. Would love to see one on here one of these days. Wish the seller the best, love it !

    This is the seller - good eye on the mid or late 85. This is essentially the 86 production. The dash is flawless. Really drives well and care free. Especially cool to see this car in the parking lot when walking back to the car. Nothing like it around. Very unique and old-school-cool.

    Nice to see a mid year 85 with the refreshed dash. Also has an interesting tan/ black contrasting carpet combo.
