I don't imagine it would be terribly hard, esp. when you've got everything apart to swap suspensions. If i was in Va, i'd come help ya!

For the record: As I was robbing parts from Scott's garage last night I checked out the car. The paint looks pretty damn mint to me... I think someone is just being a whiner!

Congrats-
sounds like option wise your car is a lot like what mine was. Mine is a 91', Steel wheels, no power steering, no power windows, but mine does have A/C, what about yours? Mine was previously owned by a 50 year old lady as well who did all the service at the dealership(stealership) I was provided with about $3200 in receipts just from the dealer service when I bought it. Looks like the top on yours is in pretty good shape, the previous owner of mine put in robbins glass rear-window top shortly before I bought it. I picked up my car for $3200 w/ some cheesy aftermarket 15" ICW wheels and new tires. My paint is in great condition, but probably not as great as yours. If you can transfer the power steering I would do it. have fun man

Drive more. I have the same mileage in 7 months, and my car's been broken for at least a month of that.
