Who's Eclipse? Also Love the car man. Where did you get the SS body kit? Also did you get the side shirts/rocker panels too?

If I didn't know better, I'd swear it's an SS. Looks great, but you need that turbo now more than ever to back up those looks. Would hate to be called out by an SRT-4 or MS3 right now lol

I have the sideskirts sitting in my basement, it just got cold and I'm putting off drilling the holes. I got the entire body from mongo and drove to Pittsburgh to pick it up.

The eclipse is my brothers, completely stock 2.4, 5 speed.

The reverse lights are very nice, I can actually see stuff when backing up now.

Believe me I can't wait to turbo it, but I've been waiting until I have every other supporting mod, I'm finally there and that's the next think I'm going to do now.

Nope I bought new shoes since I was doing that and the old ones really weren't worn, they are a pain, I should have just kept them, I think I had to remove them to get at the wheel bearing anyways though. Front needs to switch to 5 lug rotors and new calipers unless you have yours re-drilled. Your car started exactly the same as mine.

I'll be swapping to rear LNF brakes over the summer.

but they use the same shoes between 5 lug and 4 lug?

and are you doing an axle swap? or just switching out brake parts for the disc conversion?
