Why not find another chassis and swap parts over? May be cheaper than stripping her down to the frame and redoing her from the ground up. but if money ain't an issue. Go for it.

Not so here in Canada. I even saw a CB7 on Craigs for like $8900 with no mods. Like 70k i think. They are regularly $2k and up. But, I'll keep my eyes out, for anything and everything lol

Thanks Mercy, I totally agree. Know what you want and go find it, right? I'm all about that. "By any means necessary", as they say!

Thanks CB7_ACCORD!

Fresh, I live in Ontario Canada. Here the Government uses salt for traction in the winter, instead of sand, like most places. Unfortunately, it rots the shyt out of cars. I've had hondas, two audis and a mini, and it did it to them all in some way shape or form. I even used to fall for the "RustProofing" that all dealers here are so eager to upsell you. Doesn't work.

I want this car, and I want it new. I also want it to stay new. I've seen restored pre-81 Accords going for a pretty penny. If I'm going to spend anything serious on it, the entire car has to be worth it, and it needs to be in the same awesome condition in a decade. Otherwise, for me, it wasn't a project worth the time, effort, or money.

It'll probably run me $3000 or so to sandblast, repair, and powdercoat her frame, and repair and prime her body to make it ready for paint. But, to me that's better spent, than if I were to spend it on another car with LESS rust. Rust is still rust, I want NO rust: frame or body. So, for me it was finding the cheapest, running option. If the car was on the road, I check her history and no accidents, then all I'm looking for is the lowest price. And, no mods. And, here she was at $339. So, couldn't pass her up!

Money's always an issue, but if a little harder work on my part means I end up with a better-than-new 1991 Accord, it makes more sense to me than spilling the same money on a new Accord (I'm assuming that by the time this project is done, it'll be the same amount spent).
