What kind of project? Demolition Derby? Fantasy car? Daily driver? Learning tool?
Does it run? What's wrong with it if it doesn't?
Best idea is to give use much more information so we CAN help you!

it runs and everything just need 0-2 sensors but its going to be my daily driver and i want to make it look and run nice. its a 5 speed and i probably need to paint it soon i was thinking about a silverish black color (its purple atm).

Take a look at the thread "Custom Forte' Racecar mock up"... (link below)
I am not normally bowled away with designs but the colors and the graphics on this car should be used by KIA for a production car...Fantastic

The "running boards" and "dog legs" are a known rust problem with the Sephia so keep an eye on them... Did you get your car at a co-part auction?
I know that the public can bid on their auctions in NC..

What's the mileage on it? Change the timing/cam belt for sure and check the Sephia threads..
