Thanks John

I usually go with (1) What can I afford, then (2) can I do this and still drive the car (do I need to?).
Of course, if the tires are bad, I'd say tires first. And paint last, as doing things like pulling pieces of the engine/interior have a tendency to screw up your new paint job if you are not careful.

Here is my order of events: 1. Interior fixed (won't have to worry about hanger rash while being worked on). 2. Undercoated (same reason plus you don't have to worry about any overspray from undercoating on new paint). 3. Paint car. 4. Take wheels off yourself, paint rims and get new tires. 5. Engine detail (won't have to worry about overspray from painting car) All IMHO

i have to disagree with the other post. interior work should ALWAYS be the last thing done.

In regards to your post, here is the order I would do those things:

1-get car painted
2-undercoated
3-engine detailed
4-paint rims
5-new tires
6-few holes and dash repaired inside
