  1. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hi Folks, I have a fully loaded Eclipse GT, which I bought brand new in 2012 (late 2012). I love the car but the only thing I didn't like was the color, (Silver). I traded in my jet-black 2008 GT (which had no extra options and was ‘stripped’) for this one. Among the reasons why I got a great...
  2. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey hey hey I'm back again all. The first "mod" of the season was much needed: Lumens HIDs. Had my goto car electronics guy hook me up and get it all neatly wired up. He said either the dealer (who ripped out my existing HIDs w/o my consent when I purchased the vehicle a little over a year...

    So I had a hail storm happen here in dallas that decided to decorate my hood with a new design lol I was inquiring to see what the cost might be for painting a new one if anyone has experience with that? I know the part is roughly $250. Trying to see if it would be cheaper to get PDR work or...
  7. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey all, so, after driving a bright yellow 4G for the past 3 years, I'm used to having a pretty flashy car so the new carbon pearl paint job just isn't quite doing it for me. I'm thinking of painting the wheels white, but I wanted to get some second opinions on it before I go with it since it's...

    Got this car almost 2 years ago. I’ve always wanted a 4th Gen eclipse, and after I totaled my 2013 3.5 Altima (I’m really salty still) I finally got one. Just recently started actually getting into the auto world, and my wife tore this thing up while I was deployed, so I got a lot of work to...

    I want to put a spoiler on my 07 GS but before I buy one online I figured I would post on here and see if I could maybe get a better price for one. I'm not looking for anything crazy, just the stock spoilers that come on the newer models that mine unfortunately did not come with. Color does not...

    Hey guys, I know how much you all love my threads :wub: I was wondering about painting the vinyl parts of our interiors. Such as the arm rest, the door "Swoop", and the big huge piece that covers our entire front dash. I've seen quite a few members do it, so I had some questions. - Should I...

    Hello 4Gers! I had a question about interior painting. I wanted to paint a few panels red in my 4G to match my Mitsu Pure Red exterior. I thought about color matching, however cans of Mitsu Pure Red are $20 per can, and I'll probably need a few cans + clear coat, which adds up. Not to mention...
  13. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I was looking into opening my tail lights and painting them glossy black so I can remove the plasti dip I tinted them with. It's really hard to see them now they have faded and I wanted to go a different route. Has anyone ever done that with the taillights? If it wouldn't look good then I'll...

    Not really. Still beats the steel rims I was GOING to use. I'm thinking of painting them bronze. Opinions?
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So just an hour ago, I send my gf out for some food. I get a call from her saying the bumper fell off. :(:(:( So I show up and the holes straight under the hood where the bumper cover sits on the chassy have been ripped. I look under the car and there are some decent sized holes in it. After...

    Just bought a 2007 Eclipse Spyder GT with 83,000 miles. Love the car so far. I have a few questions. 1 - My traction control button is completely gone. Where can I get another one? 2 - My faceplate dial to the AC is missing. This is the part that turns the AC fan from low to high. The...

    I decided to move my license plate off the front and center of the nose to down in the bottom right grill area, but now I'm left with a problem. The dealership drilled 3 large holes in the nose of the car for the plate bracket, and I want them gone. What's your guy's thoughts on filling them...

    I've been wanting to get new tail lights in the near future and I had originally planned on getting the Spec-D LED Tails in black, but I've been reading a lot on the forums about them and I've seen multiple complaints about them breaking or not working properly. And I honestly think they're...
