    on the way home, going to toss a set of power doors in it... for the evo coupe. power windows/locks/mirrors and doors without a million dents for the win.

    nah, at that point i will make a decision whether or not to scrap my 00 chassis (since this 98 is in such nicer condition) or sell it as-is.

    My Si is the winter/bad weather beater of the stable. GSXR doesn't do so good in the Chicago inclement weather. Once the Camaro is done I don't think pushing foot wide tires through the snow on a 500hp RWD car is going to be an option either. Nice find.

    Im guessing you'd end up doing what you did to the 00 to this one. And if you sell it as is you'll never get what you have in parts out of it. So I vote transfer all the parts onto this one and make the 00 your winter beater. Then paint this one next year. If its really in that much better condition of course.
