Issues(aiming to keep at 0)
Fix any rust I find after stripping the body
RPM hang
Idle bounces from 1000-1500 (a little low on coolant but I also have another IACV, and FITV, although tightening the internals of the FTIV seems to have stoped the Idle bouncing for now)
valve cover leak (Have new gasket, installing 4/21)
Suspension noises (have new ball joints, and inner tie rods, and end links)
Either warped rotors or wheels need balanced
High beams blow dash fuse
Sun roof glass loose
Tint Bubbling needs removed (have both vent windows and doors, and will swap next time I am off work)
Trunk has holes in it because previous owner removed the spoiler and painted it gold which I wont be reusing (Have new trunk from old coupe, will be swapping ASAP)
Window trim needs replaced all around (Have trim from old coupe, will be replacing ASAP)

I'd say it's not far from awesome shape considering the age!

Yeah, just a good scrub cleaning and removing the tint and it will look great!

Car looks great! It's good to see a 9293 coupe still alive. I hardly see any of them in my area these days.

Looks great, but what is the hole in the bumper on the passenger side for? I would assume a fog light at first but I don't see a matching one on the driver side.

well thats what the owner wanted it to be haha, when i swapped the bumpers, i found out all he did was take the factory box, cut the front off, cut the hole you see in the bumper, and stuff a 4" long tube in it, lol it literally did nothing

also I will have some updated photos soon, I have my grill, headlights, and bumper with fogs installed, tomorrow I will be installing the black door panels, and rear side panels, along with my good speakers from the old coupe, and one more thing, their are a few dents and dings, but the reason I say its not in awesome shape is because I need a body shop to cut out a rust spot thats under the upper front windshield trim, I would have them reskin it but thats a 3000 job haha, so I will see what the damage is to have them cut out the rust and weld in a patch panel, my guess is at or just over a grand, which I can live with
