Default Selling A Salvage Title WRX

I'm about at the point where my WRX journey is over - having a salvage title 04 WRX that I bought 'restored' with 32k on it, and putting about 60k of pretty problem-free miles on it. I'd used it as a test-bed for contributions to open-source tuning, but it was never anything that hammered the powertrain.

- CV boot tear, no real play in the joint yet

- Front wheel well has it's splash guard removed - hadn't been driven in rain without it, but autozone can't seem to ship me the correct one.

- It lacks catalytic converters. I have the catted uppipe, but really dont want to bother putting it back.

- The entire keyless entry system is removed. Apparently, when it was totaled it was a side impact and they swapped the driver door out... but not the lock cylinder. So to unlock the car, one must unlock the passenger door with the key, then hit the unlock button.

- The endlinks pop a little bit at times.

- Exterior has a few dings, from a distance it looks good, but looking closer you can see them

- On the topic of that, While the panel spacing is pretty good, something got messed up in the c-pillar that causes a little bit of water to leak into the trunk.

Mechanically speaking, it's in wonderful shape. Great compression, no leaks, all the accessory systems are good. It's got a bunch of upgrade parts including a larger blouch TC.

I could put the work in and essentially hide/fix most of those problems, but I almost feel dirty doing that - I dont want a private buyer to feel like they didn't get what they paid for.

Is it a better call to part it out? That'd be a bummer as it runs great and looks decent, but to the point of selling it, I'm not even sure of rough fair price point. 6k, 7?

Thanks a ton for any input

It is always better to sell the whole car than parting it out
