    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.

    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...

    I think I saw that car floating around for sale. Do you know whats done to it now? Its a really nice car I wouldnt cut into it it much, but a run down of whats done to it now, and what your looking to do would be nice.

    If you go all black you are going to have to do more work. Black also gets hotter and fades faster not to mention how it shows dirt and scratches. Plus if you want to touch up any of those scratches white will not show as much as other colors.

    White is also the most desired color in the DSM world for 1gs. A lot of people seem to like the 2g's smoke grey as well. I'm personally going to paint my Talon white/black with a CF hood... eventuallyROFL

    Even though I am painting my car black I have to agree to leave the color alone. I am painting mine because I did a conversion on it and would have a multi color car.
