04blueEclipse Hey I See that You have the Tein H-Tech lowering springs, and i was wondering, do you have any pics of your car before you got the WW lip kit? Like a pic of when you just got it lowered? I just wanted to compare a 1'' drop compared to a 1.5'' drop
12/29/2011 11:24 PM
Jackulous dude. your eclipse looks great! love the interior colors, and the paint job looks great. you have done a great job at making your ride what you want it to be, and thats whats important. great job. excited to see any future mods.
08/22/2011 05:02 PM
HaZal2d0uS Ah cool. What's your graduate degree in?
Any idea what events/meets you're going to in the next year?
08/22/2011 04:02 PM
davila825 lol yeah i will is a pain in the ass
08/22/2011 03:19 PM
Mattt I went out of state for college, came back over christmas break and heard this nocking at 3,000 rpm... checked the oil and I was about 3 quarts low, needless to say my brother had been driving it... so he paid. That was a hella project
08/22/2011 03:11 PM
davila825 i forgot to add more coolant after i was done replacing crank and cam seals.
08/22/2011 03:03 PM
Mattt how did you manage to spin a bearing?
08/22/2011 03:01 PM
davila825 yeah i am attending graduate school. I really haven't driven my car much and currently I am rebuilding the motor. I spun a bearing and hopefully i will have the car running in a couple of weeks.
08/22/2011 11:22 AM
HaZal2d0uS Hey davila are you still going to school at ISU or live in the Ames area? I didn't see your car at all last year driving around, but had the previous ones.
Any meets you plan on heading to this fall or spring?
08/21/2011 09:18 PM
davila825 i am rebuilding because i spun a bearing. i dont have any plans of goin FI. its not worth it to me. yeah i got your pm. i will get back to you.
08/11/2011 12:11 AM
04blueEclipse Oh cool are you rebuilding to go FI?
And did you get my PM back about the meet sometime? I sent it a couple days ago, im pretty sure the connections slow or something
08/10/2011 11:45 PM
davila825 the car looks like my sig right now. i have done tiny changes but nothing big. i am in the process right now of rebuilding engine.

thanks for the compliments
08/10/2011 11:30 PM
04blueEclipse Love your car! Looking forward to meeting you sometime!
BTW what are the most recent pics? Do you still have the wing on?
12/20/2010 01:31 PM
soon2bboosted very agressive looking from the front! reminds me of the turbo interceptor from the movie "the Wraith". lovin the color scheme
11/28/2010 09:39 PM
CrazyShooter I am not going to lie. This has to be one of the best looking cars on this entire site. Granted I haven't seen alot but still. Any idea how much money you've sunk into this car. And did you do the interior yourself.

wright06jhs Yea, eBay members tend to steal pictures. I came across one using a picture of my Neon for HID fog lights. They photo shopped big bright circles in where the fog lights would be. It was pretty funny.

And if your getting rid of your tinted tails im interested, i have covers but i suppose its time to get some actual tinted ones to match the corners

AS STATED in the first page (update:.........) the skirt will be fixed, for the hood fitment i am waiting on some new hood pins.

but yeah all in all there are a few minor cosmetic flaws that should be fixed by this weekend.



ps. i am have some serious trouble with the side skirts. they dont seem to want to stay stuck on. i use the quality 3m (red) double sided tape. if anyone has some tips it would help majorly. i think if may be how i install them. (not sure if i should screw them on first(bottom side) and then stick to body or the other way around. i make sure the surfaces are clean and grease free.

thanks



pace: about the tails. they are the led ones on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/00-02...ht_1583wt_1149) cost me about 150 plus they were professionally done at a local shop. so if you interested i am sure we can hammer out a good price.
