Looks pretty bad, but it was all surface rust. This is what it looked like after full cleanup:

I plan on picking up the door trim set from Princess Auto too. I have to take my door panel off soon. Did you get the $15 Power Point set with the red ones?
I'll pull one of mine off next week and show you guys just how bad it is. the rotor is pitted past anything I've seen. I got a little more history on the car, I guess it was traded in at a dealership in calgary in July of 2010, then sat of the lot for 9 months with a price tag of 6900.00 before a friend of mine bought it for $900 because he does alot of work for the dealership they pretty much just gave it to him. the first time I saw it was about june 2011, then it sat till April when I bought it. makes sense that the rotors are done for as it sat outside in alberta for almost 2 years. ah well, I think I've narrowed down some colors I want, its going to be some kinda white, black or dark dark blue, or metallic grey, but I'm really not sure about the grey. heres some pics that make me think so I love the white but not alpine white, the z4 in the pic has a nice metallic or pearl finish which makes me feel naughty. I'm thinking that but then theres the black. so classic but its black, everyone has it and its just not anything special even though it looks good. I'm a big fan of custom paint and I want this car to pop but not be to cheesy. an example would be like burnt orange I love that color but thats a color for a 350z not a 328. I dont know, what do you guys think? i like the Mauritius blue alot, i had it on my 92 325.
