From this experience ive learnt whats worth fixing up, whats good for parts, and whats good for the crusher. im sure steve will agree with me one this. Looking at the state of it, that will be off the road for 6 months at least while you fix it up.

but youll ignore me and others advice, do it anyway, and learn why we said not to in 6 months time when your $4k into it and it still isnt respectable
Not building it back up to drive daily or sunday curises on the road again if that's what you are thinking I'm gonna be doing to it. As far as "respectable" goes, don't give 2 rats what anyone else thinks about it's looks. The goal here is what kind of monster can I make with it. I want a VTEC killer. Not a daily driver or something to take out on a Sunday cruise. I got a 525i for that.

As far as spare money, it comes and goes. All the time. I have a car sitting here, and not being driven or having anything done to it. Might as well do something with it.
