oh and word to the wise
Krylon clear coat spray does not hold up to the elements very well
I think it's mostly the UV that's destroying it
back to wetsanding the car again and finding a better cheap clear coat to spray on
maybe PEP boys has something.....

Also http://www.mohud-scca.org/. They're the SCCA region local to Albany, and a good group. I used to go to a bunch of their autocrosses when they were held closer to Vermont.
