FF13 Wreak to Riches

Well I got a 2002 SE auto and to say the least it's in bad shape. I have a lot of work to do to it. Here she is now as is.



Now some of the rust.







Now the stuff that was bad when I bought this car. Most still is bad.
Coil pack was cracked wires, and spark plugs were old an needed replaced.
Trans was slipping cause it had no fluid in it.
Needs oil changed.
PCV hoes was collapsed.
Air filter was dirty and clogged.
Valve cover is leaking.
T~stat housing is leaking.
Brakes needed to be replaced front and back.
A lot of suspension work needed lots of rusty an broken parts.
Head lights hazy.
Exhaust is quite literally falling off.
Front passenger hub bearing was out.
Grinding noise only while driving.
Trunk is leaking.
Motor mounts going bad driver side is.

That's about all I can think of for now. Next post will be all the stuff I've fixed so far and what I plan on doing while and after I get I fixed and running.

Not really a sample I got the stuff that mixes in the clear coat. Got it from paintwithpearl and I got this colour. Purple Flake

Edit: I forgot to say this. I know I have a lot of work but I have friends that are in auto body. I'm also in auto body and will most likely be able to paint the car in class with BASF paint. So most likely about $200 for the paint. So I cant wait I got this car from a dealer that was going to scrap it. It didn't get over 40mph and so much was and is wrong with it. It will be nice when I'm done I hope. Also I'm going turbo but IDK if I can get it done before FF.

I like where you are going with this! That's a sweet deal for rear discs, I need to keep an eye out for some :)
