Default 2000 2.5RS Project: Daily Driver on the Cheap

I recently bought a 2000 2.5RS with a blown motor. My goal is to turn it into a reliable daily driver to replace my dutiful 1997 Impreza L 2.2 5MT, who while totaled, continues to run like a champ, but is getting a little long in the tooth.

My goals for this project:
1) Get her driving again much quicker than my last project (wagon of doom)
2) Reliable
3) Cheap

Here is what she looks like at this point:

Car details:
-169,555 miles

The good:
-AGX adjustable struts with stock springs
-Full poly bushing set
-Brand new tires
-New front bumper
-New headlight
-New passenger-side fender

The bad:
-Motor was starved of oil - rod knock - needs to be rebuilt
-Windows are SLOW and tint is tearing off - need to be rebuilt/retinted
-Leather wheel and shifter and gone - need replacement
-Driver-side seat is torn up
-Interior needs a deep clean
-Exterior paint is SHOT
-Sun roof is jammed
-Needs a better/complete stereo

I'm sure there will be more as I get into it.
