    Hi guys! New to this forum...

    Here's my car, 99 GS Eclipse bought in May of 2015 as a dark red clean lowered 170,000 miles car. Never been in the DSM world before (i also own a 2015 STi and a 2006 RSX Type S). We managed to find all the rare parts and build it in 2 months.
    Let me know what you think..

    By the way, i'm looking for the exact wheels (Axis Se7en in 18") Mine are the newer version with the chrome lip but i want the real one....

    Car looks great, it's would have been nice to do a 4g63, but the movie car was 420A. Pros, it's one of the best rep car I've seen in a long time.

    That's pretty cool! Any under hood shots?

    Say what you want about Brian Earl Spilner, but that movie never fails to entertain!

    The F&TF Eclipse is what sparked my love for DSM's and even cars for that matter. Before the Movie my uncle has an eclipse and I started my journey there however he sold it to someone else before I was able to get it. and the movie rekindled my spark specially once i seen its potential.

    Great Job! Hoping to get my GS to that level sooner or later. right now its got other issues i must attend first.

    For what it is it actually looks pretty good. Looks like the real movie car. I can't help but notice how clean it was in the before picture too though LOL.

    Hate it. Then again I have no interest in 2G's. I really don't like this one though.

    Yeah buddy!!! Loved those earlier movies. There used to be a replica in Columbus Ohio.

    Can't stand the last few fast furious movies though. When did ludacrisp become a highly trained fighter and computer hacker?

    Love the car though. I hope you try to replicate the engine bay that would be bad ass

    Amazing job. I've always loved the F&F Eclipse, and I do think it's respected everywhere despite the erhm, outdated parts, since it is such an icon to the sport-compact and DSM world.

    Even finding Axis Se7ens and correct APR wing deserves some praise, they are mostly trashed and gone now. You are missing the hood pins and gas cap though :)

    Interior shots? Also, it takes some major commitment to get rid of the sunroof for a roof scoop.

    Overall, I love it.

    Good luck finding the Robocar Bodykit, Axis Se7ens, and APR Wing if you can't even find the paint code.

    Also IIRC the red parts brand ecals where across the bottom of the door, not the side skirts.

    But seriously. The body parts have been out of production for a long time now. And the hood scoop I think has always been something you had to do custom.

    Already have the body kit, the hood and the APR wing and I know the 2 paint codes mostly used for these reps, just wanted to know which one he used as there as it's the best replica I've seen.
