You would have to get it shipped to you fairly quickly, but you could try langka "blob eliminator". It will smooth off the top of the blob/excess paint and not ruin the paint below. You will likely...

if you go coils, you'll want soft springs, if your goal is to stay close to original. 10k front 8k rear is the softest that showed up in a quick search (megan ez street), but I think I've seen...

Would you feel better if they had the same paperwork, looks, rim etc. but charged you $19000 instead?

my understanding is that a monochromatic light will reduce scatter/increase contrast to some degree (think prism) but don't ask me to explain in any more detail. A 6k light is going to be pretty well...

Are you sure it is nothing on the inside?
You can always use a DA polisher on the outside. Sounds like you don't have much to lose by trying. You could always try a cheap single action polisher....

I'd suggest you get a tire depth gauge to check. They are pretty cheap. I think the super sport start at 10/32" tread. I'm kind of guessing, but after 5k miles I'd think you should still see 7/32 or...

redspencer has one and has posted his thoughts. He has a thread in the build section, which you can check but search for all his posts and you should find more. sffd103 also has one.
