    Rebuilding a 12 Eco

    Here's my and my brother's Cruze project. It's a 2012 Eco automatic smashed in the front. It's a nice project with 18,000 miles. The front airbags are blown. Other than the front the body is perfect. He paid $4300 for it, and we hope to have it on the road for less than $9000 (including fees, taxes, and shipping from VA to Chicago). It's a salvage title, but it's easy to get a rebuilt title in IN. We keep our cars forever so the title doesn't matter to us.

    Yeah my buddy bought a resalvaged 2003 mustang GT back in 2005 when he was in High school and had it all fixed up by the time he started his senior year in high school.
    Prob one of the baddest cars I've been in, at the time. He still has it as well.

    Front end damage and the front 4 airbags is all you got, no engine/trans issues noted from seller? Sounds like it shouldn't be too bad of a project to start with.

    If the frame wasn't damaged it looks like a relatively easy build. Front fenders, bumper, hood, lights, bumper support, AC condenser, radiator, intercooler and you should be good to go. Oh yea, the grille. I'd have a great time with this
