I know exactly what you mean. Must be tough but hopefully it goes to a great home!
unfortunetly i wont go lower than $5000 i have alot of money into it. died randomly one day and i went in and replaced a ton of things only to find out it was an engine speed sensor barely any rust just a couple tiny surface spots where paint chipped off. i hear ya tho, hood, front fenders, and rear bumper bottom half is spray bombed. like i said not perfect but a great running vr6 swap. im taking her up to autox event on the 16th and will upload a video of it.
