Icon10 my project/dd

I just picked up a 88si a month ago for $1000 in realy good shape. It only has one dent and a tiny bit of rust on the rear passanger quarter like some hit it with a door real hard so no biggy. It has 200000 miles. The auto tranny that was replaced less than 50000 miles ago and I know this because it was my friends moms car before I bought it. All i have done to it is put a ram air intake i got from a friend. It doesnt have a name brand and i also put on a K&N air filter. Thats all for now.
And here are the pics sorry for the crappy quality they are from my phone and i dont have a digi cam yet maybe ill save for one.

the only rust i see


i need to sew this back seat before it gets worse


i think ill invest in aftermarket seats because of the wear thats happening


radio it came with


missing rear speakers but they are coming in the mail


i have a set of these rims i will be putting on after i paint them black or black with a red lip still not decided


and of course the fogs


To do list in no special order

interior:
1)sew rear seat up
2)get new driver seat and possibly passanger seat to match
3)install rear speakers (already ordered and already installed)
4) clean all vinyl and carpet completely even taking out front and rear seats to get the carpet as clean as possible.

exterior:
1)paint rims(1/2 way done)
2)get tires
3)fix dent
4)replace rear wing or close holes on the trunk lid
5)get lowering springs and shocks/struts (i dont know what it has)
6)find visors for the windows
7)tint windows
camber kit front/rear
9)fog light rewire
10)replace/fix antena

engine:
1)cold air intake(got an intake already and put it on)
2)relocate battery to trunk
3)upgrade grounds
4)cam gears
5)b21 ex cam and b18 intake cam
6)fill motor mounts to make them solid
7)fix speedo cable so i can actually see how fast im going
8)5 speed swap (picking it up on saturday)


I will add to the list as I find things that I want to do to my lude.

So tell me what you think good or bad but please dont be rude. im a newbie to modding cars so be nice. and im open to any advice you want to give and ill take it into consideration.

UPDATE 10-18-07

oh i almost forgot i got my car registered and insured now i got to get smogged to get it legit.

ON THE OTHER HAND

Well looks like i had a present waiting for me when i got home last night. i wonder what it could be?


opend it up and it was this


and the receipt


yup i got them for free

Update 10/20/07- 10/22/07
I installed my rear kenwood speakers and it sounds 10 times better.
I changed my spark plugs and throttle response is way better now. I need to reset my idle because now it surges and I noticed that one of the hoses I changed wasnt on tight enough so it was slowely dripping. But I fixed that.
i also ordered a lisence plate relocator from a guy on honda-tech for 15 bucks. just to see how it will look with the plate on one side or the other. to see if i like it or not

Update 10/30/07
well my ****ing lower control arm (lca) decided it was time to break today when i was on the freeway. On the bright side i made it to the junkyard today and picked up some bolt for it and also got some center caps for my bmw bottle cap rims.

Well i fixed the lca with a couple nuts and bolts and a drill because i needed it for work the next day and its doing good so far

Update 11/17/07
well i'll be doing a 5 speed swap in the next couple weeks. ill be picking it up on saturday
