I hear you Adam, two kids here too means pretty much no zed money! Grab some polish from work & just have a crack mate, it'll look loads better & offer protection especially over summer with the baking sun. Claybar kit & polish is all you need (& plenty of elbow grease!) As for arms, grab some cheap Midori style ones or look at the GK tech ones I run. If I bit more budget look at Rob's group buy too. Or just change the bushes in your stock ones. Nismo arms are just stock arms with Nismo bushes, can be sorted much cheaper when needed. Good luck mate!
