      @BLACK'98DSM is right. It may seem hard to believe, but Mitsubishi used different harnesses throughout the car based on equipment, trim level and model year.No RS was equipped with power mirrors from the factory, so the door harnesses didn't...

      You probably didn't have the door harnesses installed from the factory. You'll have to buy them, or some people just swap door assemblies.

      I’ve been reading the forums obsessively, searching through 20 year old threads, and looking at all the products for sale on the sponsor sites. And I think I have a pretty clear plan for my ‘90 after all maintenance is done.It’s so original...

      I started pulling parts off that GS this weekend.My first pick was the spare tire cover because a previous owner spilled something on my original one.I realize this isn't typically visible, but I love little details like this. 😉Speaking of...

      Salty-Seagull reacted to Canadian_CD9A's post in the thread Frame up restoration cost with Like Like.
      Body work and paint are your biggest variables, and a bare-shell job that paints every surface is likely going to be at least $10,000 for a good, proper job. A reliable 500hp is going to be another $10,000 or more (engine build, turbo setup...

      Yeah, it is sad. But while I may not be able to save the whole car, I am going to be saving a LOT of the parts from it. 😁 And I mean a LOT. 😅

      Oof it hurts to see such a clean body taken off the road. I’d have a hard time not just buying the whole thing to save it

      My favorite auto recycler just got this 1998 Eclipse GS in!The car is beautiful in person, with a bunch of amazing parts, but being from the north, it does have rust.The doors and hatch are actually in great shape though, and the interior is...

      Good read, there's only a handful of proper articles that are more than a page long which go a little bit more in-depth, such as this one.If you don't mind, I'd like to share a few pages here from an actual book about DSM I randomly found back...

      I haven't had as much time to work on the car lately as I would have liked to. But it's coming along, one step at a time. I have the billet handles put in and handle assemblies painted. I had to replace some of the plastic bushings for the rods...
    • Salty-Seagull
      Stock and original is the best possible option. No other setup rides as smoothly. Get this, the entire suspension geometry was built around the stock ride height. Leaving it stock prevents premature wear on ball joints, cv axles, tie rod ends...

      Thanks @vanilla gorilla. I appreciate the comment :)Thanks @BLACK'98DSM. Yeah I am not really sure what caused it. If I was a betting man though, I would put money on it having been run while it was low on oil. The bad head gasket caused oil to...
    • Salty-Seagull
      Piston slap with less than 100k miles? The only reasons I could figure that are if the car was ran low on oil or if the blown headgasket allowed enough coolant to severly dilute the oil. I once re-used OEM pistons and wrist pins with 180k miles...

      Great job on the car. Very thorough
    • Salty-Seagull
      Not a whole lot happening with the car at the moment. It's in storage with 97,105 miles on it, so I added 232 miles to it this year, and 490 miles overall. This means I drove it nearly as much this year as I had the two previous years combined...

      RTM is excellent. I have purchased a few really hard to find parts from them (I mean REALLY hard to find), and they delivered. Thank you RTM! :)

      RTM Racing is having another of its rare sales.We aren't sure how long it will last, but it's strictly a "while supplies last" deal. We anticipate pricing to last for most of December at least, but as mentioned, while supplies last only. We...
