Here is a Little Teaser. Getting ready for 6 Bolt Swap
I Love my DSMs. Its in my Blood what can I say.
One day it will look like this with a FMIC.(All Rights Reserved by IPC ©2009. Please Do Not Steal).
This here is my 2nd DSM. Very Rare on the Island of Maui (within my knowledge I only seen three 2G GSX, three 2G GS-T models, and one 2G GS-T Spyder (Auto). (Others RS and GS, which I don't really care about). I got 2 friends that I graduated back in HS who drives a Green 96 GS-T (Auto) and the other a Black 95 GSX (Manual w/6bolt). I just purchased this car for $4,000 (From $7,000-$5,000-$4,500-$4,000 Final) on July 18, 2008. It had 158,xxx miles on it (I know the miles is so god dam high but it was the way to go). The car originally came from Alaska...(wtf), and then got ship to California, then to Maui. Its been through 2 owners making me the 3rd. Car had few modifications on it will list them later. Only bad thing about its too dam low (which isn't a bad thing on flat surface... stupid speed bumps). Now I'm proud to own both the 1G & 2G Eclipse. Yes, they both are GSX models. Only one thing the 1g is auto (planning on swapping to manual). Don't Worry I won't make any of my Eclipse Rice going all OEM. I'm still building my page so, they will be more to come. This car may be all OEM but guess what its still Turns Head (well I guess you get that if your car is soo rare). Bad thing about DSMs here is there are 'No God Dam Dealership on this Island so parts is a pain to get here.
Bringing the DSM trend back on Maui - Ever since I bought my Eclipse people around me started to buy eclipse. One day I took my eclipse to visit my high school I graduated at. No students had an Eclipse but, when they saw mines they realize dam that car looks clean. As the Months go by I started to see students buying eclipse and I was like wtf (at least 4 are in the parking lot)... Sad thing about it is that they didn't do thier research and most of them are buying GS and RS models (maybe I should educate them). To bad they are not Turbo models with a 4G63 Motor. Slowly, as day goes by I see more and more people buying DSMs. It just hit me, did I bring back the DSM on Maui? Are they becoming the IN thing. O well at least some people won't buy a Honda (no offense Honda Lovers).
As of 11/11/2008 My car will go to sleep for a couple of months. Today I believe one of my Rod Failed on me (sad day)... Thank God no Holes in my Block but, who knows have to open it up and see the aftermath it left. O well I'll put this project to the side and Move on to my Almost Complete 1G GSX (Which indeed is another rare car on the island). See next page for 1G).
Taken on July 14, 2008. These are some few pics before I bought it.The car factory paint Barcelona Red Pearl Metallic P75 .
She needed a owner.
Dam she sits very low (Thanks for dropping it for me).
I tried my best taking these photos. I know they look similar to the first photos but these have a higher quality image of the car. Yes, I do know how to use Photoshop.
My Ideal of a GSX Concept . I think its possible to extend the hood over the headlights.(All Rights Reserved by IPC ©2008. Please Do Not Steal).I finally did a Photoshop version of my car. I was kind of rushing on this project so its ass looks sloppy.
As you can see its too dam low (One of the Lowest 2G you'll ever see). NO AIR BAGS INSTALLED pure Koni Shocks. No offense but, no fat chicks will sit in this car while in motion. Its to low were I can't fit a jack under the car (Not even the OEM jack in the trunk). My foot wont enough fit under there. I hate speed bumps (you should see the crazy angle I have to go through). While driving I have to be caution for debris on the road for example, dead cats (If I don't react my fish mouth front bumber might eat it). Pretty much my car chews gum off the road and everything else in its way. Try inserting your fingers in the front fenders (Trust me they won't fit even I tried). My side skirts like to kiss speed bumps also. The only dent on the car is on the front fender (It was like that when I got it). Yes, I know tuckin on Stock Rims (luv these rims I dont think I would ever replace it). Beside I always wanted a rim with a Chrome Lip.
For people who don't know what makes a Eclipse GSX so special.AWD with 4G63T Motor (Just like the evo but, its a coupe). Look at that clearance
I recreated the DSM Logo and AWD Logo from the 1G GSX. The great thing is that I have access to a decal machine. So I’m thinking about putting the AWD logo somewhere on my 2G. (If you have or know someone who has access to a decal machine. I'll be glad to send you a eps or a vector pdf file so you can have them created. There’s a catch I just need a couple ratings on my ride and some kind comments will be great. I know about the © law. Please use at your own risk). ^_^
Finally Added the AWD Logo onto the car tell me what you think.
I assume my passenger door handle broke off so they replace it with a black one(planning to paint it).
Reviving my 1G Eclipse will be a Dream Come true, as of now its still in a deep sleep for six years. Last time I drove it was back in HS as a freshman 2003. Before I found my 2G I was putting a lot of money into my 1G. Finding my 2G made me become a true DSM Lover. I wasn't planning to buy another car but, when I saw this car on the news paper it was a must have. I didn't believe that it was really a GSX model. Because of being so rare here I couldn't let anyone else purchase this car. Once I saw it I immediately contact the owner of the vehcile and was surprise that it was being sold for a very low price. Looking around the car I realized that this owner put down more 2K rebuilding the car. Best thing about it all parts he put on are from HKS .
This really is a Dream Come true.
Heres a little tribute (not my video).
