Another new guy!

Hi, I'm new here, I got a 2003 SE for $5000 (Still haven't paided it off)
It was in a front end accident, and has a variety of things wrong with it. I love it because I am slowly learning more, and more about it as I fix it.

SO far it has:

Another transmission (free from dealer)
--I saw a post said that this was not necessary, The A solenoid right?--

A subframe, the old one was bent and ate up two tires (Also free from dealer)

One new tire, it only costs $120, but I've put it off so much that now I NEED three new tires.

I also got some brakepads from autozone, but I'm taking them back. I'm going for hawk pads, and powerslotted rotors

I bought two monroe quickstruts for the front they cost $130 each. I still need back ones $30 ea.



There is a couple of little stuff too, but nothing 10 dollars at the junkyard won't cure. I have some very bad peeling on the hood that I'm told needs to be sanded off, Here are some pictures of the car, any thoughts?
