    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Well, the carpet isn't perfect but it's very much improved! I felt like they did a great job considering how nasty it was when it went in. 😆I'm planning to take a crack at that lingering stain soon. I bought some Meguiars carpet cleaner that I'm itching to try out. It's just been crazy hot...

    2G Comparison: 1995-99 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder versions?

    I assume you mean differences between the Spyder GS and the hardtop coupe GS?There are several differences. The information below is for the 1998 & 1999 model years since you asked about the 1999 model year specifically. I didn't look at earlier models to see what (if anything) may have...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Try as I might, I haven't been able to find a mint trunk carpet, so I decided to try to clean the one I picked out of my parts car. It's kind of sad because that carpet was ALMOST mint, but unfortunately a little bit of oil dripped onto it and it bled through to the backside. While the backing...

    Road Race Build The 2GNT That Could

    That is a lot of work, both around the house and on the car. On both points, I feel your pain. 😅 I've been going hard on the yard this spring, and making (much slower) progress on my suspension too.Not sure if it helps or not, but the GS-T rear sway bar is part number MR130722. At the time of...

    Resolved Confused RS or GS?

    Your hatch is definitely from an RS; it doesn't have the rear wiper, and the remaining portion of the sticker matches the standard "R" in "RS."From the single photo of the rear, I can see you have black mirrors, so I'd bet you have an RS. If those mirrors are manually adjusted and not power...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Well, the new (old stock) axles have, so far, appeared to put an end to the last of the fluid leaks! 🤞🤞🤞I also used this opportunity to swap out the front lower control arms with some new old stock. The boots were shot on all four arms, so I didn't want to wait any longer. Everything else...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    Finally got around to fixing the air vent lever on my HVAC controls. It wouldn't go all the way to the left.I reseated the cable behind the glovebox and now the vents fully open and close. Pretty easy fix for something that has been bugging me since I bought the car. 😆Ignore the dust, I...

    Happy to share that with the amazing weather we've been having in Michigan, I was able to make some significant progress on the parts car.The doors and hatch have finally been liberated! 😁

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    We are actually getting a Spring in April this year so I took the Eclipse out of storage on Monday, just in time for the celestial eclipse.I took this rare photo of a partial eclipse partially eclipsing a partial eclipse 😆Other than that, I'm back to tearing apart the GS I bought last...

    First post

    Welcome! Looks like a great project. I'm also in the process of rebuilding and replacing the vast majority of a 99 N/T. 😆 You are in the right place! Good luck with the car!

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    It's still officially winter in Michigan, but somehow it reached 70 Degrees today (woot!), so I went back to the parts car and pulled the main body harness.I learned a few things during this process, and one of the things I learned was that it is a LOT of work turning an RS into a GS. 😆 Is it...

    Salty Seagull's RS to GS Upgrade

    I just completed my annual trip-odometer reset on the Eclipse. The car is in storage now (and has been for a few months), but I put more than 500 miles on it this year! Most of those miles were making memories with my wife and son. It was a hard year as far as job instability, but those miles...

    I also want to know that. I blew my budget for this month but I'm interested in at least one more part if it's still available next month. 😆

    2G Did the early 2g eclipses come without a spoiler??

    The standard RS wasn't equipped with a spoiler.By 1996 the three-piece spoiler was part of the "Preferred Equipment Package" which added air conditioning and alloy wheels among other upgrades. That said, an RS with a spoiler was pretty common after that, but your 1995 wouldn't have had one...

    2G Visual Guide: 1997-99 Front Bumper Cover & Components

    Weirdly enough, it doesn't look like they did it that way. I checked three OEM bumpers, and as many diagrams as I could find, and never found any screws there. One of them was on a 1998 GS parts car that I'm pretty sure never had its bumper removed... but it's always possible.The grommets do...

    Front bumper bottom reinforcement to stop it from flexing?

    2G Paint Color

    If that's the OEM color, it would be Saronno Red with the paint code R87. Here is an example: For the stock paint codes and colors for the 2G Eclipse check out this thread.For the Eagle Talon R87 was called "Radiant Red." More info here. Here is an example:

    2G Cargo strings/clips?

    The tailgate trim clip shown here? Part number MR189485? Unfortunately I haven't seen any new old stock in years.You might try posting a wanted ad in the classifieds. It's possible someone still has one or two they'd be willing to sell?

    Thanks @Dericsh and @BLACK'98DSM I really appreciate that. :)Well, due to the weather, we missed the official cruise last night, so we charted our own course tonight instead.

    2G 98 Front Bumper Emblem and clear side markers?

    MB814979 was used on the early 97 models. I'm not sure what changed between that emblem and it's replacement (MR311003), but it should work.If you need any more decal/emblem part numbers this guide has them. :thumb:

    2G 98 Front Bumper Emblem and clear side markers?

    The front bumper three-diamond emblem for the 1998 model year, at least for the North American cars, was MR311003.Not sure if that will help you find it or not. Most (if not all) of the parts for our cars are discontinued and they can be difficult to find.Sometimes you can get lucky though...

    I was furloughed from my job earlier in the year, and money has been tight, so there still isn't a whole lot going on with the car, which is obviously a huge disappointment to me. There is a lot I want to do.I've been working on my blog and YouTube channel in the meantime, and tearing apart...

    2G OEM Floor Mats - Looking for Information

    If you wouldnt mind taking a photo of them, I'll include it in the guide. I'm sure the backing is fragile, so you dont even need to remove them from the car if you dont want to. Even just a close up of the logo would be helpful.Otherwise I think the driver side would be ideal to photo. That...

Besides being old, dirty, and tired, it is different from the Mitsubishi authorized mats that went out of stock a year or so...

    2G 2gNT Manual to power mirror

    @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 get the connectors.
