With a list that long, you are basically re-skinning the car. Are you sure it is really worth the time and effort? Keep in mind, you are talking about a 20-something year old unibody car. Often times the rust you cannot see is much worse than the rust you can, and the hidden rust is in the structure of the car. Before I put any serious effort into the hunt for parts, I would test the body for structural strength. Jack up on corner of the car, and see how well the door operate. If there is minor binding, chances are you are okay. If the doors will not close again, then be prepared to do a MAJOR structural restoration or else rethink the repair. The other option, if your mechanical systems are all good, is to buy a rolling project from the dry states, and transfer your interior and all the good mechanical systems to the solid body. Either way, though, your cost will likely end up higher than buying a good one and preserving it.
