Nice find! Just picked up an '04 Aero, 5spd wagon and am going through the same process as yourself, Powerflex n' all. Well done! (Still gotta do my trailing arm bushings.. those suck to do.)

Those are the easiest! unbolt the plate, and take out the center bolt.
use a sawzall to cut the bushing and the ring, and just pop in the new bushing.

I've heard you need an alignment after replacing those?

Well, you probably need one, anyways, though.

When you undo that front plate, your toe gets whacked.

You can mark it so the plate ends up in the same spot if you want. I'm sure it'd be fine do drive until you got everything done.

Did some paint correction. Clay, compound, polish, seal and wax

Looks 10x better then before. Hood is really rough though with chips everywhere so will be looking to find a cleaner one

Met up with a local guy and swapped my rk2s for his rk1s. they do need refinishing as they were plastidipped white but theyre all straight and barely any curb rash. tires are shot and mismatched as well.

Plan is to powdercoat over the winter and get a fresh set of rubber

Hoping to find an 04-05 Aero bumper and the rear spoiler in black eventually.

If anyone has any leads or comes across anything let me know

Why did you swap wheels? I've always preferred the rk2 to the rk1.

Other way around for me. I like the rk2s but for me they look best when lip is polished and that's too much work/money to get them looking that way

Rk1s have always been a dream wheel for me
