Do you mean just repaint the roof area? Or prep the roof and scratch the rest and paint over it?

@Doright, thanks for the input, i'm not expecting anything awesome but I don't want to waste my money either, I've got some stuff I can practice on first so that I can at least get it to go on alright, I'm pretty patient but I've always been on the mechanical side, not the body work side, looking forward to expanding my horizons though!

Your second sentence....
You don't wanna do a big time resto here IMO.
