Default To sell or to keep? 2002 Honda Civic?

Alright so I bought a 2002 Civic. At first I thought it was a good car, it had alot of good accessories and cool stuff. But then more problems kept occuring. Now the car is three times as more reliable than when I got it, but some of the accessories that made it worth while do not work. For example, now it passes emmsions, it had 2 broken engine mounts and those are replaced now, I fixed the oil leak, and a few other stuff, the viper alarm system blew the ignition fuse, so I had to remove it. Alot of the accessories were wired from the viper alarm, like the T.V.s and strobes on the outside that made it look like a cop car. It still has LED light bars in the interior, custom interior, kenword touchscreen radio, sub, amp, and 2 speakers. Custom paint and rims and all that good stuff, short ram intake, megan racing exhaust and headers. The heart and soul of the car are good (engine, drivetrain, chasis), but the rest that isn't perfect. All the electronics and wiring might not be exactly right though. So I have the decision to make. I have already accepted the fact that there is no way in hell I will get 8.5k for it. So should I sell and just try and get what I can for it, or should I just cut my losses, try and fix the electrical bugs, and just fix it up into a decent car? What you think?

If I put that much work into a vehicle, it would be my baby and I'd keep it close-knit. I'd keep it. It sounds pretty nice, but you're right, there's no way you would get 8.5k from it. Depending on the mileage you might be able to get 6k from it. Honda's will last you a long time if taken care of the right way.
