i agree with what others said - don't worry about cosmetics at first. just get the thing reliable and work out your "thing" to tie down the car. so hubs, brakes, tires, wiring, lights... then once you are getting some use out of it - worry about the cosmetic things. you "might" find that you want to cut and weld a little on it (i did) the first few months...
"I really started paying attention to cars was when they came out with the Nissan Z, the first body. Then I seen the Cherokees, the old square ones, and I was like, “Wow, that’s cool.” Then I seen the Isuzu jeeps and I seen the Wranglers."
