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?

Yes same size drums it's just cheaper to buy new drums already drilled to 5x110 than have your old ones re-drilled.

I have Powell's twistbeam bushings which are a pain to get in and I doubt I could get them out. I have his brackets for the calipers so that's what I'm using, no beam swap.

It's really easy I could explain it. I'm keeping the tool for Powell so I'll be shipping it out to anyone in the US that order a them but the bushings are $395 but definitely help.

Finishing up my SS/TC polished wheels today and ordered the last big order of parts before my turbo build. Looking to be a good day.
