Should I sell my 82 280zx

I recently bought A 1982 280zx at the age of 17 to fix up and have as a daily, and I am considering keeping the engine and trans and selling everything else.
I was originally going to make this a project car but Im not sure if its too far gone.
The engine was rebuilt and the trans is new and, the car runs good after it is heated up for a minute.
But the downsides are: A ton of rust and needs alot of body work, needs rear struts, brake pads, calipers, rotors, wheels and has some eletrical problems.
My main concern is spending to much money on the rust alone.
Please feel free to give your full opinion

Welcome to ZDriver!

Sorry your post was auto-moderated, it's visible now.
Rust does suck... time consuming and expensive... if you want a rust free car, then you'll have to decide what to do... or just cruise it as is.
