Round about 130k all original paint from 1990 and no rust on the floor boards, underneath it looks great now major scratches or dings and hardly any rust. I fell inlove with it

Looks good just save your money because once you start modding it'll consume you lol. It's a blast though

CONGRATS !!!!

If I had to give you one piece of advice, it would be this:

BEFORE you do ANYTHING to it, stop and think about it. Lots of folks do mods and then later wish they had done it differently. Everything that you do usually results in a change required elsewhere. Ask questions, do research, and be PATIENT.
