    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Last night was Cruise Night in Fort Gratiot, MI. I took the Eclipse out with my family and it was an awesome, perfect; beautiful night. It was a dream come true and I can't wait to do it again. 😁There are two things that concern me though.I could feel the transmission shifting in the...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    I picked up my Eclipse from the mechanic this evening and went for a drive. It was amazing, and well worth the wait. I didn't feel like it was going to stall, and it seemed very smooth. If I'm not mistaken, the car turned a few heads too. 😁In short I had a ton of work done to the car, and...

    420A Need help identifying/finding zip tie clip.

    What is this orange clip that holds the wiring harness in place from the valve cover, and where can I buy a couple? I believe there are supposed to be three of these? I only have this one that didn't break or disappear over time, and I can't seem to find a part number.

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Yeah, I was excited to see it intact! I got really lucky with this car. The firewall lining is like new and the hood liner is in great shape too. There's certainly a lot of work to be done, but the really rare parts seem to be intact and in great shape.The trade-off though is that a lot of...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Waiting for a new exhaust manifold to arrive (mine was cracked). I am also going to replace the steering rack bellows since mine are in rough shape. Other than that, I think this round of maintenance is pretty much done.It's cool to see the engine bay without an engine in it, and I'm pretty...

    Solomon's 2GNT Build ('98 RS)

    Dude, that sucks about the storm damage. :( Do any of the yards around you sell whole cars? I remember you posted some pics a while back showing some decent looking shells. Could those be of any help for you?

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    I was afraid this cucumber might be a dill and I would find myself in a pickle. 😄 But the shop sent me an update today, and it seems that the engine is super clean inside, which is a relief and very exciting to hear!I can't wait to see it when it's all put back together!

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    It finally happened! My car is in the shop to make a huge dent in the deferred maintenance. The goal is to get my engine healthy. If all goes well, the car will be running in top shape soon. 👍

    2G Eclipse RS with sunroof?

    Yeah the GS Spyder was sort of in-between the RS and GS as far as trim goes, but was a little different. It had a 4G64 engine instead of the 420A. It had side skirts (air dam) and fog lights like a GS coupe, but it had rear drum brakes, fixed intermittent wipers, no rear sway bar and manual...

    2G Eclipse RS with sunroof?

    Wasn't that a 1999 GS? The brochure called it a "sports value package," but I've seen most folks call it "10th anniversary edition" or "OZ."I really like those. They had one at a local junk yard last year, and if it had been in restorable condition I would have bought it. Hopefully he will...

    2G Eclipse RS with sunroof?

    Yup!The RS also wasn't equipped with fog lights, side skirts, or a center console arm rest. They had manual mirrors, fixed intermittent wipers, sun visors with unlit mirrors, and vinyl backed front seats too. I've been finding other more subtle differences as I dig into my project too, I'd...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    I have been buying parts for roughly two and a half years to restore this car. This year, I am hoping to FINALLY make a big dent in the deferred maintenance and (fingers crossed 🤞) stop the oil leak in the engine. The weather is finally improving here in Michigan, and I am getting closer to...

    It might officially be Spring now, but Michigan didn't get the memo. 🌨️😆I haven't been able to do much to the car over the winter but I did buy a Chilton's manual for the 1990-98 Eclipse recently and I've really been enjoying that. There's nothing like a nice relaxing read after work on cold...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Yeah, pretty much. The side mirrors survived somehow, but other than that, there wasn't much else that I could salvage for my project. I will probably be back for various odds and ends before the crusher comes back, but it doesn't look like there is much left that I can use.

    I'm looking to replace the timing belt on my 420A soon, and I'm doing a stock build... but I'm not sure what belt to choose?It seems like conventional wisdom is to use OEM, and while it looks like Mopar sites are still selling the OEM belt, I am not sure how old those would be... I have yet to...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    My favorite yard got a new Eclipse in, but it was in a really bad accident and all of the parts that I was hoping to pick for my project were damaged. I was able to save the side mirrors though, and I'm thinking about buying the hatch because of the low-rise spoiler. It looks like it survived...

    2G Need some opinions on spoiler

    I'm trying to decide that as well. I always planned to restore my low rise, but then I bought a hatch with the high rise on it. I like them both, but I think I'm just going to go with whatever is installed on the hatch that I ultimately end up using so that I can have a third brake light. 🙂

    Sadly, this happened:😲I had no idea they were going to crush the car today. 😔 I am really glad I was able to get the hatch and the special edition gauge cluster before that happened.I didn't get everything I wanted off the car, but I'm pretty sure I got everything I need to get the rear...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Yeah, that's the part I'm not looking forward to. I will have to really think about what I'm going to do. I plan to replace the front bumper, fenders, fuel door, add the side skirts, repair some scratches, and fix all of the dents. The paint is already damaged on the roof, and if I swap out the...

    It's the middle of winter so there isn't much going on with my car right now.I did a thing today though...After a lot of internal debate, I decided to buy a hatch with the high-rise spoiler and the rear window wiper. I purchased it from the same silver GS that I got the front bumper, rear...

    Mine doesn't have a triangle or emblem on it and it fits poorly on the passenger side, especially under the headlight, which has a weird hump. It was on the car when I bought it, so I have no idea where it's from or who made it, but I am definitely not happy with it.I feel like you made the...

    Crushed DSM's

    Up north they tend to rot away if they've seen winter roads. The few I've seen at yards in Michigan were pretty far gone, so I get that, but those actually look like they were worth saving.I doubt that there are enough parts left to save them all though. And repairs can be very expensive. When...

    Welcome! I am interested in learning more about this from purely a curiosity standpoint. I'm trying to restore my 420A, but I think its awesome people swap in different engines.We basically have the same car btw, minus the power antenna. Best of luck with it, and enjoy the journey!

    It's also worth noting that most, if not all, of these emblems and decals are discontinued and can be very difficult to find as new old stock. When restoring the emblems/decals, If accuracy is important, here is some additional information:The original decals (A & C) are printed on a clear...

    2G Visual Guide: Front Windshield Wiper Arms and Blades

    Great info! Thank you!As far as the arms on my car, what I removed was definitely a little different than the new old stock I used for the writeup. I'm not sure why that was the case; it's possible a previous owner swapped the arms with a set from an older car, but I haven't been able to find...

    2G Visual Guide: Front Windshield Wiper Arms and Blades

    UPDATE & FYI: When I installed the wiper arms MR311075 and MR311077, I found that the wiper arm head cover hole diameter is just a little larger than the superseded original arms. This prevents the OEM wiper arm head covers from obtaining a snug fit; they are too loose.
