You've been wanting to learn more on wrenching evos. Want to watch and document this restoration?

Interesting Poll, I would have to say that it depends on what I was planning to do to the car. If I was going for a full build anyway, I would rather pay much less for a molested evo and use the money I saved to immediately fix it. If my plan was to keep it stock, then I would pay more for a collector style IX.

Is there any rust on Evo #1, or is it just clear coat issues? Cali car shouldn't really have rust. And fixing the paint wouldn't be too expensive.

Selling a car with a DIY garage built motor is DEFINITELY going to kill value. You may know what you're doing, but the average buyer does not know that, and has no way to confirm it.

No rust on either car. Clear coat was my fault for parking under a tree that had low branches when it was new. As my car got older, the damage became more apparent. And I agree that built engine is less desirable than untouched oem engine.

If you can't get your car in, its not a garage, its a shed. I had both cars and a 17ft boat in my 2 car garage last winter and it all fit - barely, what a joke. I need to unload a boat. And I keep seeing tools I'd like to buy but after last winter, having room to walk is a pleasure. Space has value.

b.o.a.t. = break out another thousand . I too have had projects temporarily turn my garage into a workshop. It doesn't help that mitsu paint is terrible.

Sorry, this was from visiting my in-laws in Irvine. We were there all the time and their neighbors were UCI students renting a big house, so street was always packed.

A stock Evo 9 is worth more but it really depends on the trim level. Just repaint your Evo and have it detailed and use paint protection. A one owner Evo is rare in itself.
