    Background:
    Bought in Indiana from a private seller - car had cheap coilover kit and other than that was pretty stock. Started modding it with a few small things, then one winter when it was in my garage, decided to dump a bunch of stuff in it all at once. Car wouldn't run right from then on....no one near me was capable of tuning it and then it started sitting.....last time it was run on the road was 2005.....I got it to run enough to bring it to the dealership where I work and am getting the help of some of the technicians here to try and get it running right and state inspected. Side note, took about 2 years to source the front bumper, but it's an authentic Veilside front from Japan. Stillen out of California finally got one for me and I spoke to the employee at Veilside directly...he told me that they no longer were producing that bumper due to something breaking and basically they only ever had records of shipping a low number of these to the states. I've never seen another Eclipse with the front. As for the back and sides, they are ebay junk that a "friend" got for me....they will be replaced. :)
