    ^^ What he said. Why go to that much trouble if you aren't going to fix it all properly?

    Alrighty then here it is.

    A little update, got the fender and bumper from a guy on CO, i have started some work on them both, fender is almost done. The back side has just been undercoated so waiting for that to dry. The hood is 95% done now..heres pics cause i hate typing

    Bumper sanded down


    The hood


    The fender-couple spots still need to be sanded but the undercoat was drying.

    Undercoat


    Teaser pic of my paint


    So my plans now is to get both fender and bumper ready for primer next friday, and rear window taken out to do some body work to the hatch maybe shave someting :P

    remove the rust and or sand it away..you want to get rid of the cancer cause it well bubble up and come back.. smooth it out, primer, paint it..also if you can, go from behind and sand the rust away there aswell, then primer it, then undercoat the living crap out of it.. yes i edited the last post cause it was F*****

    Are you pulling the whole engine, or just the transmission? You can swap the transmission without touching the front of the car...
