I first want to thank everyone who responded with their cars for sale. I got alot of great offers & some nice pics.
Now I just have to make a decision.

I do have one question though, actually it is the subject.
I would assume you re-skin your cars in every off season.

Or does it depend on how much of a beating your car takes during the season?

Just reskin it when ther is more welds & rivits than actual fenders!!!! Just Kidding. You are more likely to have good sponsors with a nice looking car ,then one that looks like an x-demo car. I do mine atleast every other year.

mine gets it when it needs it i never have any sponsors so i don't worry to much about it as long as it looks good in the first pic then she is good to go untill the body is folded up or rubbing on the tires. my first car i made pretty then after the right door got ripped off the 2nd nite out and ruined the hours of body work we did to it i desided i would make it pretty fast after that lol i still pic good colors and flashy letting but i don't go thru all the trouble of bondo and all that

I stumble across your web-site a few days ago. Very good reading & looking at the pictures.
I think I went through every linked page you had up there.

I'll re-skin every year. basically the way my body is built, I keep the roof and windows. The rest of the body is fabricated, other than the hood.
