Well yeah, I figured Im just going to put blue neon. Matches my lights and guages. Plus I have a custom Eclipse sign in the car that lights up blue so all needs to match. Just posted the interior one and I like the windsheild idea. Just need to think what Id want..

Yeah, I do like those but dont really want to spend the money on another set of wheels right now. Those are brand new so it would kill me too.

Black it out. Sell your new wheels and get some black ones, and paint your grille black.

Turning the grill black may become a hassle. Than I need to swap out my wheels and lights I would think. I need ideas for stuff I do not have already, also which color neon to purchase. I have custom guages that light up blue and a custion Eclipse sign in my dash that lights up blue so Im leaning towards blue.

Going stock is not an option, kind of ruins the whole car. Than Id have to get the whole car repainted again and it would look much worse.

Thank you, I thought the kit was nice. That back bumper is a hard find, you dont even know how hard that was to get. I have people who come up to me asking where they can get one and the fact is you just cant. The seats are brand new, I dont know why hed say there warm. But I would like more ideas for the interior.

Only thing under the hood is a cold air intake, not big on performace. Its my day to day car (only in the summer, stored in the winter). So thats why I go more for looks. I know theres not much more I could do but just wondering what you guys think I could do. Im still looking for a nice undercar kit, dont want to spend alot. Looking for around $100 if thats even possible.

You have any suggestions? What LEDS there are in the price range of 100-125. Also blue cathodes under my seats?

So many people are saying black it out, Im considering getting the mesh black now. But wheels would never happen, I dont have another $800 to spend.

look at your pics of the seats, the wrinkles and warn marks in the leather... if they are new, did you buy them used? they dont look like new seats....

and its mesh, painting it would be a pita that wont last, just look for something that is black and meshy....

you could always powedercoat the wheels, leave the lip chromed and have the spokes powdercoated. you could even have them done in hyper black, so it would keep the chrome look but also be dark at the same time. you could probably get them powder coated for under 200...

You cant expect seats to stay perfect. But Twisted, I do like that idea Im going to have to look more into it. LED's is first though, once I find one I like in my range.

I agree with the others about painting the mesh inserts,but I would recommend painting them a dark grey/charcoal color instead of black,as it just seems that black mesh would blend in too much.Also,I think your cailpers would look great painted a dark blue color.Another thing you could do would be to get a simple black license frame for your rear tag,and matching screws to hold the lower portion close and even to the bumper cover.I think that plastic Eclipse dash insert would look so much better if you used the factory style font,it seems a bit too home made looking. icon_cool.gif

I like the license plate idea, Im definately doing that and for the sign, your saying just make another cutout but with fancier writing? I would do that too, it would look better and very cheap to do.
