What do I do about the bullet holes?



Yes it is real
Yes there were major injuries
No it was not the cops
No, I do not want to go into the details

But, I now have this 2001 Mazda Tribute with a few holes in it.
The car has been recently been completely gone over mechanically and I put over 3k into it. Its a solid runner (maybe just not fast enough)

So what to do with it?
Part it out?
Sell on CL with the bad mojo?
Body shop?
Be a lot of questions from a buyer
I (we) do not really want it around anymore, in fact it may be better if it left the state

Car is clear title and released from investigation

Buy a bunch of those fake bullet hole stickers and trick it out!

Edit: or do what dealers and realtors do when there's something messed up with an item for sale: Feature it.

I bet your profile gets an epic amount of hits tonight.
Do the windows work? Locks? Interior shot up? I'd ebay it, watch it go viral and bag more cash than if you fixed all the things that are wrong with it.

You could try and drum up some curiosity by posting about bullet holes and being vague...

Body shop.

Or, if the holes are all in a door, source a replacement door of the same color at a salvage yard.
