You interpreted my words perfectly and said exactly what I was thinking rather than writing.
I still cant see a lot of the things that you guys have picked out, not saying they aren't there but congratulating you on where to look, what to look for and your keen eyesight.
What the seller said about the new respray looking good from 10 feet away together with the photos failing to hide flat dull areas and orange peel that even my eyes can see would say to me that as a potential owner the respray has deducted money from what the vehicle is worth (to me), I would rather buy an honest car where I could see all the paintwork defects not wait a year for them to appear and have an extra coat of paint to remove.

I reviewed the chronology provided by the PO (L.W. Langley?) via dealer. According to this, the car came from North Carolina in 2009. Engine is from a Cortina and body/parts are piecework. There is a listed, "off road accident" where the front end was totaled, but it is stated prior to the installation of the Spyder frame.
An interesting prospect, but may need an in person inspection.
