Hey! Things have been pretty standard with my car so far, but I'm getting a job at an auto body shop pretty soon and the increased income plus the access to a ton of more tools means that my ride will finally be given the tender loving care it deserves. For now, here is my baby as she sits at the moment, I'll update with changes as they occur. First on my list is retrofitting some Morimoto Angel eyes on the stock housing.
Nice ride bro.

did you get the 6 spd manual....they didnt come in the newer ones i believe
No, it's the 5-speed automatic
Nice ride man, any long term plans-- CHOP
As for long term plans, I have a ton of bolt-ons I'm interested in, but I'm still sorting out what's practical, what's necessary, and what's just for fun, and I'm trying to limit myself to the few that fall in the center of that venn diagram. As for the visual appearance, I really want the ACI fiberglass hood, I plan on painting the grills, rims, and headlight housings white, blacked out tails, get my interior led set up finished (no exterior or underglow, not after last time >_< ) and I'm trying to devise a little personal touch for my interior, I've got a couple ideas up on the drawing board but nothing concrete yet.

After my first Eclipse, I've definitely scratched vinyls, decals, bodykits, aftermarket head/taillights, and audio systems off my list. My 01 GS was my first car, I did a ton of stupid shit to it because I was still a kid and thought it would look cool, I look back and think "damn, what a huge waste of money." Now that I'm paying my way through college by myself, I'm definitely thinking more conservatively this time around, and most of what I do will be DIY to save some $$$.

I redid the plastidip on my front bumper because the first time I did it, it was really bumpy and the edges were jagged and a mess. This time it came out as smooth as I imagined and I even cleaned up the edges with chrome trim. Next on my to do list is a grill craft lower grill and a set of sunset pearl fangs, anybody wanna send me some? :)

I've never seen the chrome on the lip like this on an eclipse although I wouldn't doubt it's been done before. All the EVO X's at my nearby Mistu dealership have chrome lining the lip like this and I thought I'd try it out and I love it, and it really pops that area imo.

Thanks :bigthumb: I get a ton of inspiration from the other members, I spent hours lurking the member's rides forum before I even bought my 4g, but I hope in the end I can take all those ideas and throw them together into something new. I hope to get the exterior finished by May, and I'd like to do a bit of engine work but the GT has more than enough power for me compared to my last two cars (01 GS and 94 Camaro)
