Congrats. I’m going through nearly the same process with a high mileage car. Fixing something usually leads to fixing something else “while you are there”. If you’re handy then this car is for you. If you’re not then the repair/maintenance by someone else will kill you.

What do you guys think is a good fix? Add good rear mufflers only? Buy a Resonator and do full muffler delete?
Thanks
If the resonator removal is done nicely, just get good mufflers. I'd look at the Supersprint Magnum mufflers. Way easier than having resonators and new mufflers or axle back pipe installed. Won't be cheaper, though.

Congrats car on finding a good new owner.

Seriously though I am glad you were able to get a very good price on it.

I paid $13k for a 110000 mile car and $10k in parts later the car is like new. I do all the work on my cars.

The previous owner of mine must have given up on maintenance which is exactly what I am looking for in cars I buy.

Congrats again it looks great!

Thanks guys, good group of car fanatics on here.
I've been tackling little stuff and it already is feeling like mine. I just don't know how to get rid of the air freshener vape smell, so gross.

Car Yards use Ozone Generators to get rid of odours.
It’s probably worth giving it a shot with a cheapy.

Changing the cabin filters would help. With my experience they have a great smell from the factory. Maybe some of that is lost on the seats being in rough shape. Hate seeing interiors get jacked up like that. I have done two coats of gold class on my car and it's looking great. Maybe have someone sew it and see if you can leatherique.

Ahh I know who you bought this from lol...

This was going to be the leather seat repair attempt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gI04exWUkKI
tbh, the seats could be worse. That quick fix might make it good enough to ignore for a long time.
