Hey guys I wanna black out the rear end but that would require changing the color of the chrome spoiler to black. Would it be cheaper to get the cover on ACI for like +$200 (paintmatched) or should I just get a shop to paint it?
How much do you think a shop would charge? I don't wanna do it...
Thought I should post an introduction of how I ended up here. I have an 8th gen Civic coupe that I love but its got some cosmetic issues I rather not put the money into and its pretty high mileage anyways so I've been car shopping.
I looked at Celica's, Tiburon's and even an RX-8...
How do you guys go around changing your fuel door color? Trying to black out my car but don't know what to do with the gas cap, you guys just paint it or use a kit or replace it?
I've searched around haven't found much so far.
So as stated, there is moisture all through my lip spoiler with the 3rd brake light in it, from left to right. Is there an easy way to take it apart to drain/evaporate the water and reseal?
Also, the starter is loud and clunky. I was told this is normal when they get a little older and they...
Just as the title says, surely you've seen some sick 4gs and you wanted to replicate their style?
I personally love ChrisB's and Unde(can't remember the numbers).
I always wanted to black out the eclipse, and I finally am, haven't looked back yet. I think I finally pulled the trigger on it...
I have a '07 GT Premium package Eclipse stock besides a professional AUX cable install :P
My question is can I/how do I replace some parts to get it to be like the 2012 SE model?
So far these are the differences between mine and the 2012 that I can find:
Injen3" catback, Injen CAI, Ingalls Torque Damper, Thermal R&D
Blacked out Taillights, OEM SE Lip, OEM Aero kit, SE Spoiler, Blacked out front bumper, Black out rear lip & hatch,
TWM short shifter, shift knob
Wheels and Tires:
OEM, Ichiba Spacers...

Alright well I have the AIT black out cf spoiller. However prior to my getting it or during shipping the hardware was lost. Does anyone happen to know what all I need and what sizes ?
Before Anyone ask's I've already tried contact ACI to see if they knew where I could buy it or what I needed...
I'm fishin for some ideas to give it a little somethin extra. I dont want crazy off the wall ideas er anything. My plans for the car is a fun street car, not a race car not a show car. I get enough compliments as it is from everyone that sees it. :ndance:
I like tasteful modifications. Like if...
So my spoiler came yesterday and I was wondering what you guys would recommend using to make the screw holes in the trunk to mount the spoiler to and what would be a good sealant to make sure water doesn't get in once I do.
I'm praying I can get it and a few other goodiees on in time for MOD...

I got tired of looking at the chrome crap on the Eclipse today.
I painted the diamonds in a "different" way.
1. scuffed them up.
2. painted with gloss black and clear coat on the "lip" and then taped it off.
3. painted the "bevel" grabber green and clear coat.
4. overlayed the "face" with...

I was driving back to Richmond after spending a day or so back home in Virginia Beach. I drove 90 miles and was only ten miles from my building when 2 deer scurry across the freeway. The bigger of the two jumped out of the way just in time but the slightly smaller one jumped towards my car... I...
