DOHC's with the competition package (R/Ts and ACRs) got the lower 5th gear ratio. All ACRs had a fog bumper without fogs, and they were pretty low-optioned cars. None had the side moldings.

I believe that Rear defroster, P/S and A/C were the ONLY power options available on the 1gn ACR models.

None came with Tilt wheel, Cruise control, and others as previously stated - Molding, Fog lights, etc.

If that really is an ACR it's only worth repairing because it's an ACR... If it weren't, I would say start with a cleaner shell.

i dont think it is an acr but i really dont know how to tell either. the worst damage really is the rockers and one dent above the left rear tire. the rest is all bolt on pieces so im not really worried about that to be honest. ill leave it as is and make people think its a total pos then just leave them in the dust lol

That's crazy damage though dude. Having to try and fix that would be insane. Rockers aren't made as patch panels.

If you have hook ups like that, then you're the fucking man. I need hook ups like yours. 100 bucks is way too cheap for that damage

Hopefully you can get it done. I don't know if there are many body shops willing to do that work at all. Not on a newer car that these panels are not available.

just make them by hand with a little sheetmetal. its just the curved part that needs fixed. not around the door itself. and it would get cut just off the pinch weld for a guide.

like i said. that may be the worst damage but really its the last thing im concerned about. i would rather have a car that runs like a raped date n looks shity then one that looks perfect but barely runs at all. know what i mean?
