I found a car that I would be interested in buying and making my project/toy. It is a 2001 honda civic ex that has been highly customized.
Here is a copy of the listing.
"All it needs to be show ready is finishing touches to the body a convertible roof top made and paint. The car has NO ROOF on it. This is a new engine totally built not the orginal engine. The motor cranks and runs but the timing needs to be set and it could use dino tuning to get the most power out of it. The car is perfect for someone to finish off and have a unique custom ride"
I added a few photos of the car. I will be able to make the top myself but my concern is how difficult it is to get the timing set and to do the dyno tuning. I don't care so much about power I just was a car that runs efficiently and has a completely different look.
If someone could let me know what I would need to do to get the car road ready and how much it would cost (typically) I would greatly appreciate it.
