Hey everyone thought I would start a build thread so I could add to it as I progress with this car. It's a 2012 galant se ( 4G69) so far just have a drop in k&n filter, plastidipped grille, wrapped front bumper and other minor mods. I am very interested in the 4G69 platform as a whole and have learned a lot from this forum. Like always heres some pics ;)

First night I had her


Plastidipped the nasty chrome grille and threw on some eyelids

Here she is wrapped without the chrome blacked out..

Chrome is gone

How she sits to date


Coming up soon I'm installing the D2 coils and ichiba spacers in my closet after this winter:D

Your off to a good start. I'm really starting to love the gallants . May have to get me one after the eclipse is paid off. Mod really opened my eyes and sparked my interest in then.

Thank you , and at MOD 2013 in normal right? I was there too , lots of vr4's and 8g's. 8g galants i feel have an easier platform to work with and have less weight than current gen if that's what you're looking for.

YES! it's great seeing more people mod Galants (I got an 8g myself), I like what you did with plastidipping the front, looked really good in person when I was at MOD

I can direct you to a forum dedicated to Galants if you like, but Club 4g is my second home, and I can say that this forum will be more than helpful for you, both in the overall activity, quality of information and that your 9g is basically a 4 door 4g Eclipse, it's the same deal with the 8g Galant with the 3g, we can use basically all the parts from the corresponding Eclipse with the exception of body bits

It's amazing what a set of eyelids did for her. Looks good man. What do they offer in the way of bolt ons? I've seen a couple really sharp lookin newer galants where I'm at. Keep us posted!
I know right makes em look mean, and thank you. Yea it seems like most of them stay off the forums though:(. Basically what I've learned/researched from bolt ons most 4g gs/ lancer RA bolt ons fit directly onto 9g galants but some parts due require extra welding due to the size difference in the galant and eclipse. Will do !
Yep that's the one :)

It was nice to see the variety of cars and styles .

I personally love 8g's lol. Thank you I've always wanted to black it out, its half plastidip and half vinyl. I'm guessing you're talking about TGC? I had to make a new account on there and their user panel is all messed up making it a pain in the ass to post. That's why i just stalk club4g:)

Sounds good bro, I am usually around Alton/st.louis area don't know how far that is from you. I will definitely be at mod next year though. And like i said nothing under the hood yet because of warranty but that will change soon...

Shit man,I don't know if I would be able to wait! Lol. That'll definately bring your ride to a whole new level. Literally! What size spacers?
I know haha I try not to think about it :rant2: . I'll be lowered soon enough though. The spacers are ichiba v2's 15mm in the front and 20mm in the back.

Small update :

Recently ordered some tint overlays for my taillights. I was shipped the wrong product and will probably just start my headlight retrofit before I go low. Still trying to figure out a way to relocated my front license to she looks so much better without the "stache" :bash:
