92' project

Hey i'm new to cars so i might need a little help. I picked up a really old 1992 civic hatchback and I'm interested in making it look better than all those 2009 cars out there. But i dont know where to start. So if anyone can give me an idea then please help a brother out. I also have a big rust problem on the vechicle as you can see on my dp. Any opinions will help out.

** I will also gladly accept any donations or low offers for parts like bodykits (side skirt, bumber, lip), exhaust, rims, etc. **

From the sounds of it I wouldn't call it clean.

By the looks of your dp I would say you would have to get the rust cut out and new pieces welded on. Search forums for body shops. What kind of body kit do you want? Just lips or full out dumpers that look like fast and furious cars?
If just lips check out OptionJDM: Performance Parts & Accessories body shops can install/paint the lips too.

Lol from the looks of it, it does not seem like minor rust. Looks like a piece is missing.
