00' ZX2 worth it to repair?

What's up guys, so i got this car a year ago with 138k miles for a thousand dollars, it was a decent deal at the time because it still ran fine. Unfortunately, I couldn't attend to it until now so it sat in the driveway. I have it running, siphoned the old gas out and changed the oil. The battery is fine. Right now from what I can tell it needs a rear bumper, the tires, and possibly an inside door handle ( I don't really know about this one, It's just the handle not the actual latch. I talked to the inspection guy and he was pretty explicit about having operable handles haha. I mean it still opens just as well.) So at this point I'm debating whether it would be worth it to repair it. I can do most of the repairs myself, but it also needs an inspection and tags. I don't care about cosmetic damage.
also, i only looked at the bumper real quick but it looks like it just bolts on. Are they pretty easy to replace? Thanks in advance.

I'd sure keep it. Your problems are minor and the car still has a lot of life left if it has been cared for. I changed my bumper ('93) and it was easy.

by the sounds of it that is just a bunch of small stuff. You just need to find a local wrecking yard and go shopping. Make a list of everything you need or better yet bring the car and you should be able to find everything for cheap.
