I'm going to get a stock black front cover today from pull a part 23$ and put it on for now. Gotta be able to drive the car. The one I took off is broken in half and has a few holes that I am going to try and fiberglass back together so I can put back on. Like I said, if I can get it pretty, even if only for a month, I can sell it quick and it can be someone else's problem.

I loved the car when I first bought it, but then again it was pretty much covered in snow. 600$,didn't see any rust, 120000, and all it needed was a clutch and tires. 3 days later, after I had it towed and clutch fixed, I'm disgusted that I ever thought it was a deal

Good point. Run that bish til the wheels fall off. If its in good running condition, you paid $600 for it, may as well use it for as long as you can. And when its dying make rally car out of it.

looks like the previous owner tried to mold the kit in and the rust is causing the panels to separate, it's even possible that the reason he molded the kit into was that the body was starting to rust. If you keep the car take your time removing the kit that way you can mount it if you still want it.
