2002 Eclipse GS

I bought My GS back in october of 08, it had a broken rear motor mount, and a few other problems that come from a six year old car from New York, but I picked it up for 5k with 80k miles so no complaints.
When I went to fix the motor mount I found that the dog ear had broke off the trans. I used to work in a fab shop so I built a bracket that bolts to 3 spots on the trans and avoided buying a new trans. Aside from that the car is in prety good shape and have been working on it ever since.
The Eclipse was completely stock when I got it, and still is basicly.

Nothing visually brutal. The front turn signals definately need to go (smoked ones are available on ebay, or you can niteshade them). Tire shine needed asap, and hope you have plans of wheels in the future to replace your painted ones. Tint & a drop also works wonders.

what we think? i think you should have put the center caps back on when you painted your wheels. i kinda like the sub box, and you should look around at other's cars to see what to do next. there are some nice cars around here... and some crappy looking ones too.

wait, you bought a car from NY? first time i have seen somebody take a car from the rust belt to cali.. usually they take a car from cali to the rust belt.

Your audio setup looks nicely done. I agree with both previous statements.

I am just starting really, I am working my way from the inside out, one because it is a daily driver and two because I am on the inside 24/7. I plan on smoking the signals or getting new ones not shure yet, and im looking at either the halo projectors or the sonars as far as the headlights go. and as far as the new york thing I was unaware of it when i bought it.

thanks for the comment on the box.

1. The outside looks horrible, please, clean your car before you take pictures, I see that you live on a gravel road or whatever, but hell it takes 5 minutes to clean your wheels.

2. I hope you plan on getting new wheels, because the stock GS wheels painted black aren't doing anything good.

3. If the sub box is custom, I applaud you on that.

Yes I know my wheels and tires look like crap, I plan on getting new everything and would have already but I was laid off in december so money got tight. The box is custom, complements of working in a fab shop for boats. I am curently in school getting my degree in automotive technoligy so I will be doing a lot of work on my car. Thanks for the comments by the way, Ill take all the advise i can from any one who knows more than I do, which is most every one on here, so thanks.

I agree as well with what most others have said. New wheels, tint, and a drop. Along with headlights and tinted corners. Otherwise not a bad start and I really like that sub box, I need to do something like that for mine.
