Ahhh, all those ads that flash across the top of the screen are vendors for parts. Autozone, Pepboys, etc also have parts.

As far as bdy work, real DSMr'r don't rice out the cars, especially the 1Gs. They look nice factory.

The talons have the more aggressivve looking body than the eclipse's..You can get a lip kit, or the home depot front lip is about all true dsmers do to their cars..As far as mods..You can black out the headlights and tailights with vht nightshade..

Theres also a couple of exterior mods in here.. Theres 2 pages of exterior mods.. Articles: Exterior/Interior - DSM Forums

If its not in there.Search for the home depot front lip..

Do not rice out your car. Rockauto.com for all OEM engine parts; build a performance car, not a "omg i have a 8in muffler exhaust honda". You'll be ridiculed off this site.

maperformance.com

extremepsi.com

Those are all great vendors to purchase parts from. STM has a lot of nice underhood aestetics. Make clean, then start modding.

Welcome to the dsm world. All of the places that have been mentioned above are great places to get parts for our cars. I am surprised that nobody has mentioned the all important " take care of all regular maintence before you start to mod".

I would just do the good ol home depot lip and black out the tails.

He was asking about modding the exterior not modding with bolt on power..But good catch..Maintenance is the key if you don't want you car to break down on you...
