It's a little hard to tell what color it is. So, what color is it? Silver? Looks good anyway.

yes you need to replace your belts...
there's a write-up here for that too. if you're not mechanicly inclined you might wanna pay someone t do it. its a lil booger to do. change your pulleys would be a good idea while ur at it. took me just under 3 hours w/out any breaks to do mine... if you dont know when the last time the sc oil was changed you should do that too.

The paint bubbling on the hood is not that uncommon, mine was was bubbled along the front leading edge when I bought mine.
The hood is aluminum and aluminum does corrode. I had mine stripped, primed and repainted. Cost me $600.00 but I insisted on the whole hood be stripped,
primed with zinc chromate primer, then painted.
Would have been less $$ if I wasn't so particular.

Since this is an aluminum hood it is likely paint loosing adhesion to the primer.

In my case they did find corrosion under the bubbling paint and the aluminum needed to be properly treated before priming.

Nice RIV! I bought mine on Craigslist too! As for the bubbled look on the nose, it looks to me as if it has surface rust under the paint. A little elbow grease, some sandpaper, and some paint would fix that right up!

my idea for the paint is black with a silverish arrow running from the R on the trunk lid along the roof to the R on the hood. what do you guys think? and i probably won't have any sketches of it since I AM NOT AN ARTIST OR EVEN CLOSE TO ONE
