From those pictures you really have your work cut out for you. I wonder if a newer used car would have been cheaper? Hindsight is 20/20 I guess! Whatever the case, you should post logs on here of your repairs, before and after photos, etc. I'm sure many more here would appreciate it than just I!

On a side note, is this a manual or auto?

Are you referring to an actual functioning one or just a decoration one? Scoops have to be fairly deep to do any good when you truly need them (i.e. accelerating at fairly high speeds). The ones on most cars you see now really don't do any good (obviously excluding for-show ones) because of the fluid dynamics of air flow.

Pretty sure SRT was trolling

It is an automatic. Yea it would be a lot of work to fix. But I am not able to do anything to the car atm since I dont have a job anymore. I think I have pretty much decided to just ride this thing into the ground just the way it is now. Make it last as long as possible. It shouldn't rust anymore at least because I have cleaned the rust and sealed it.
