Body Transformation

Hi guys, I owned a eclipse 2006 2ys ago and I love it. Im seeing which is gonna be my next car and I like the idea to go back to eclipse. I did some picture editing moding the car lol and I wonder if it is posible to archive it, even if I need to cut and do whatever neccesary

I hope you've got a good fabrication setup, and a lot of mechanical experience.

Removing the window quarters will be easy, cutting the trunk is gonna suck as they are structural rails back there you'll have to cut, the front is gonna be tough because the radiator will need to be changed, exhaust may need to be changed, and the whole motor may need to be shifted back, possibly requiring cutting the firewall

Looks like a 350z in the back with an older supra looking front end .

I bet with a chopped roof it could look alright. As is, it's pretty awkward. Also needs some skirts, and other body work to fit.

Well, I will have to pay almost all the job lol. I knew the back was gonna be complicated but I thought the front was gonna be just change the bumper, maybe do some support to make it a little longer. I'm just dreaming here😂, I don't know too much about this thing but I like to do this type of stuff by myself

Yea. I was trying to get a 3d model to work better in how is gonna look and do the changes better. I was thinking to give it a wider and sharper look in the quarter panel

Oh god no, you're looking waaaaaaaaay more work than you think. Having a shop make it, you're probably looking $30,000+. There's a lot of structural stuff to be cut out and re-made, as well as the cooling system, and possibly even the whole placement of the engine. If it's a GT, I'd say there's not a chance it'll fit without moving the motor back

Cut fenders, lowered, skirts, different hood, and you can end up where this one is at. It's cutting the fenders and lowering that really gets the look

Hahaha, well looks that it will just stay as a dream lol, the thing is that I love the shape of the 240z but I wanna make on my first car that was the eclipse. I thought this was just hammering it and I was gonna make it look like that😂😂😂

Ah, lol. Nope, you're gonna need a lot of cutting, welding, bending, and custom body work for that!

It'll be cheaper to buy a 240z hahaha.

Got any other plans for it? Maybe I can help instead of crushing dreams

I will probably change car in about 6-8 months, I still have time to make decisions. I will stick around to see if I go for a eclipse in the end. Thanks for the advice man, they were very helpful👍

I bet you'd like a 350z, based on the look you had there. They can get body kits with bumpers very close to that

Downside is, fuel economy is awful. But they're a fun car, easy to get decently quick, hard to make high power with

It doesn't call my attention, I will probably go for the mustang 13-14, that was one of my fav, I like its retro style and I love how looks
