    Hey everybody, I'm a proud owner of an 08 GS Manual Eclipse. Ive had the car for about two weeks and have been reading through the forums and thought I might as well sign up and post a thread. Long story short: I needed a 2nd vehicle and found this gem on a used car lot in Salt Lake. Car...

    Don't store the cans upside down. I've had a couple sitting around for a year upside down as you would do with spray paint (to prevent propellant escaping), and they have plugged themselves up

    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...

    I was thinking about wrapping my whole spoiler/brake light in a matte black vinyl instead of using plasti dip or VHT night shades. I heard from a buddy that VHT fades in sunlight, and when you stay in texas you bathe in it. What do you guys think? Should I just wrap it, or just paint it...

    I have the stock GS wheels on my 4G still and a couple months ago the two passenger side rims became extremely dirty and discolored. I thought it was just regular brake dust at first but when I tried to wash it off it didn't go away at all. It looks like some sort of metallic coating on the...

    So I have a 2006 Eclipse GS in Rage Red. For some reason on my fenders there are Chrome vents. I don't think they are real vents but I haven't investigated. I don't know if I like them or not...Did they come as an option from Mitsubishi or did the previous owner slap them on? No idea.. Not sure...
