MR
PAINT NAME:
White Jade Sardonyx
INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
Tan Lurex—Sardonyx, White Leather All original. Carpet is rotted in the corners and the driver's seat has noticeable wear but everything else is good, just dirty. Chrome is peeling in places. I think it will clean up really nicely.
EXTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
Got a paint job a few years ago (billed 12/2016) but was parked in a garage since then so it's still like new. I bought it missing some exterior trim but I'm getting it. Polishing stainless steel. Chrome is bubbling but passable... rear bumper is peeling noticeably but not terrible.
