>From a financial standpoint, you will do best overall to part out the extra
items you have and sell the car as completely stock as possible. The 94
stuff generally brings good prices (in fact I already know potential
buyers). If you paint the car, it won't increase the value enough to
justify the cost of paying for the paint unless you know someone that can
give you an incredibly good deal. If you're going to keep it then it's just
a matter of finances.

Subject: [MR2] Suggestions/for sale?
I don't know if this is a post asking for suggestions, or trying to sell my
MR2. I am pretty stretched right now with kids expenses, and them all
starting to drive soon. I love my MR2, and don't know whether to proceed
with my work, or sell it. This is what I have, and am asking for advice:
1993 MR2 (Turquoise). It stared life as a N/A, and at about 155K I swapped
an engine, transmission, front brakes, gauge cluster etc. from a 1994 MR2
Turbo with 41K. That car was in an accident. That was three years ago, and
it now has 53K. I also have the 1994 trunk w/spoiler, 1994 tail lights, and
turbo engine lid waiting to be used. I also have two extra wheels. The
engine is stock, except for a cone air filter, and a sweet runner. I just
had the timing belt changed, and it needs nothing. The car has always been
in the South, and the body is in great shape. The interior is good too. It
does need a paint job, as it has sun damage on the roof. So, my next step
is to paint it and add the 1994 body stuff, or sell it and concentrate on
buying another Honda Civic for the kids!
Any advice? Would it be a good seller right now? I know there aren't too
many stock ones with no modifications, and the 1994 stuff is pretty rare.
I enjoy this board! Thanks,
