I started by dying the main hatch panel.


I also washed all the other pieces off and let them dry.



Before I put everything back in I wanted to clean up the floors, sadly my small shop vac was at home so I couldn't do the greatest job, before I do the final assembly I'll have to bring it out.




I then put the rear panels in but hit a small snag, the center trunk panel needs some trimming to sit flush with the aluminum floor. The other pieces may need to be trimmed too. I'll fix this at a later date.



I then moved on to pulling my engine and front chassis harnesses from the car. This was actually pretty easy, I labelled everything I knew but some things will need to be researched before any work starts. Once I have everything labelled I can make a plan of attack.




Chassis harness.


No wiring.


Finally I got the bumper painted but ran out of time for clear coat, doesn't look half bad for a rattle can job though.

    I think it would've been easier for you to just build the car from the ground up.. I think you've disassembled and reassembled 90% of the parts so far. Good progress just think the 2gb (mitsu) bumper would look a little better

    Car is pretty much being built from the ground up.
    I had a 2Gb Eclipse bumper and didn't like it. Besides, it's a Talon, it should have Talon body parts.
