      Yours originally?

      Salvage title?

      Should be fairly easy to do. Might as well swap the intercooler for an upgrade while you're in there.

      I bought it as a quarantine project. It'll have a rebuilt title once all is said and done. But mainly just body parts. I'll have to shape the fender rail a little but not much.

      Probably sell it afterwards as we already have two others...

      I think I have all the parts ordered now except the driver's headlight and air bags. Hopefully some boxes start showing up soon.

      Parts are starting to trickle in. Anyone know of a good paint company in Bellevue/Seattle, WA?

      How did you come across it?

      I bought it on an auto auction.

      could have used carbon fenders and hood and got away without paint. I vote that the other guy was saying about an aftermarket intercooler... might as well go after market, its usually cheaper than OEM and its already an R title so people are going to know to not expect a minty stock car.

      Seems like a fun project

      Not sure about the quality of this places parts or paint but it's something to consider for the next car you do. And if you don't see your part listed you can contact them to get it.

      Seems legit?

      Yeah. But I'm probably not keeping this car and probably just sell it for cost I'm into it.
