well since i dont like the sunroof, ill be cutting the roof area there, for the reast ill just be cutting out the freame by the back door, because of the wheel well the front door can go all the way back so ill have to cut off part of the back door to fill in for body pieces, back seat will be gone and i'll fabricate some upholstery for the space behind the driver seat, maye have some direct trunk acess larger than a dvd case as for the brake lines, ill be replacing them since mine have a good amount of surface rust and probly wouldnt survivethe procedure unscathed anyway, exhaust is easy, fuel line'* easy, wiring, ill have some extra bundles but i can make something of a deck where the back seat was and tuck it underneat, oh and i think u mean buick reatta??

Within a year, huh? Can't wait to see you begin the project

Better start making a list of tools you'll be needing. Plasma cutter, frame jig(*), MIG and TIG welders, english weel for the compound sheet metal curve in the roof, bank account with a few commas...
