My '97 only has 84k on it but the gloss is gone from every horizontal body surface. I have used rubbing and polishing compound until the scratches were gone, then several coats of wax and it still goes back to the dull finish. I have concluded that the clear coat is gone on those horizontal areas. The question is, how much should I budget for prep and clear coat? Will I be charged for a full on paint job? I dont particularly care about the few minor dents but I do want the paint protected. Thanks for any info or advice.
