Ok so I sold my evo 3 and have since had many super rare left over body parts such as evo 3 bumper with lip and mesh evo 3 side skirts and rear bumper as well as spoiler in addition I have good gab adjustable shocks for all 4 corners and evo 3 amber corners with headlights so I have tried to sell on ebay with no luck and I am in them pretty heavy financially so I am just going to give up on selling this stuff and find a 500 dollar fwd auto mirage 4 door to bolt this on to then pull it in the shop and paint it and then do a fwd 4g63 auto swap for a daily driver as I am in to my sc300 2jz single turbo for performance so just looking at something I can kind of throw together in a couple of weekends also I have left over e3 engine mounts as well so I am looking for ideas on what to do here with the spare parts and I have located 3 4g mirages on FL craigs list here in Orlando area so finding one is not a problem.
The only thing I do not have is the hood in which I could import one or pay for a carbon one as the cost is about the same.

Auto is a must and a/c is a must not interested in awd or much more than stock hp as it is only going to be a daily nothing more.

I am interested in input as to which direction you guys would go if you were in my shoes.

any turbo engine conversion is an aggressive project. fwd doesnt make it a whole lot simpler to execute. while the cars are not hard to find, finding one with a nice body that isnt way over pried can be a challenge.

I had it listed for 1500 but I am in it for almost double that so this is why I kind of want to build a nice cheap daily driver out of this left over stuff I have laying around but I am getting flack from my wife about to many cars so I may have to thin the heard or hide this project from her if I decide to move on this idea but I love the look of the early evos and I have had 2 of them but they just do not do it for me anymore as far as hp and reliability so with that said I am more after the look than anything not performance and to be fair I have had 7 evo 8,9 and rhd early evo plus dozens of DSM's and have done everything one could imagine in them and to be honest I am more after reliability than anything which is why in my older age I flock to Toyota products plus our shop sc300 ran 2 years at mid 9's on an internally stock 2jzgte so very little money to go that quick.

This is just in the idea stage now as I have all of these parts just sitting in my shop and I am tired of looking at them and would rather see them in action!

Florida and Evo 3 parts kinda gave it away. Can't believe you weren't able to get $1500 for those parts. I've seen the bumpers fetch $500 + alone. Hopefully you can find a decent sedan, around here I see one sedan for every twenty coupes it seems.

Haha yup not very many evo 3 parts floating around here and yes I have seen them fetch the same or more in the past but seems like people in to these cars are few and far between let alone people willing to spend money on them:(
I am hoping to get a 4 dr here soon but to be honest I really in my heart do not want to build yet another car but I feel like its a waste of those parts to sit in my office corner doing nothing, Maybe I will throw a car together paint it and then sell it as a whole?

Post up some pics what's included for $1500. Hell, I might be interested 8) . No way I'd put together a car just to sell, I think you'd end up losing even more going that route.

Lol I found a evo 3 rear sub frame and drive shaft with t case that I actually forgot I had but my buddy bought the sub frame from me right away so that prevents me from making poor choices like awd swap but I do have a spare t case and drive shaft makes me wonder what else I have forgot about that I may have around the shop, I was hoarding early evo parts for years for seemingly no reason.

I sold mine to my buddy who offered me 800 for it which I was ok with selling it for that price but i would bet ebay would sell for more,
