    traded the exploder for a riced out flatbrimmed 96 ex coupe, think I can bring it back to life ? or is it destined for doom, I will go ahead and announce I already traded the wheels for jmags

    I think you should start a business buying cars for $500, lighting them on fire, and collecting insurance fraud for $3000. Isn't there a single car in your area that isn't some salvaged craigslist piece of shit?

    step 1 - proper bumper
    step 2 - proper paint
    step 3 - STOP

    I took a "primered" car to maaco one time to get an estimate. They said it would basically cost double to paint because the primer was so shitty. Said it would have been easier to paint a car with old paint.
