    Wheel bearing already? Again?

    Update to anyone who may read this down the road. Dont buy the cheaper parts. I learned the hard way, again. Two weeks ago i replaced my wheel hub assembly again. Last night it busted again on the expressway and almost totaled my car and came close to dying. Cheaper parts are not worth it.

    Wheel bearing already? Again?

    So here's the story: (Drivers side, Front, FWD, NT) Before winter came, I decided to do all the maintenance before the lovely Michigan cold weather prevented me from doing stuff myself. In that process, I discovered I had a bad wheel bearing. The auto parts store here only had one brand...

    2G eclipse srt rear lights conversion idea

    Just replaced my tailight on my '13 Malibu and it ran a couple hundred bucks for the factory part. I couldn't imagine how much SRT part would be. It looks sweet though!

    suggestions on new custom sticker

    Lol. My car sits next to lifted Chevys and and a 5.0 Mustang. I have to drive an hour to find other tuners. I have a "danger to manifold" sticker underneath my hood. Haha. I like the mitsubishit sticker.

    Most embarrassing DSM moment?

    I took a girl out in my auto and somehow bumped my overdrive button on the highway at 80 Mph and sent my rpms to 7500. She hit her head off my dash, luckily my airbag didn't deploy. Terrible night.

    High rise spoiler. Installed. Doesn't look right.

    I've been messaged a few times about that but never got an answer out of him. He did 100% of that part, including the grinding. The whole thing was done in 2 days.
  26. Tha Fella Dylan

    High rise spoiler. Installed. Doesn't look right.

    For those who are considering doing it, it's not hard at all. The most difficult part is figuring out where to drill the holes. Me and my friend did the whole install in about 30 mins. My spoiler was rattle canned flat red but I shot some clear coat on it and it looks great now. If you have...

    Plastidipped my car.

    ^ lol show me this.
  28. Tha Fella Dylan

    Plastidipped my car.

    It would take a good amount of force to peel up. My brother dipped his jeep rims and rashed them a few times before it peeled up. That or a sharp edge. Touching up is easy.
  29. Tha Fella Dylan

    Plastidipped my car.

    Lol. The white seemed to be thinner than the black. Took more costs to cover up existing colorRemoving it after a long period of time becomes more difficult as it does what rubber does, becomes brittle. Don't make the same mistake as me and skip taping off. It's a cool look though. Good luck.

    Plasti dipped my winter car

    Ill post up pics when I get home. It looked good but its a difficult color to use covering up other colors. The biggest issue I had was the blotchy look, after 13 cans and no help on the issue I peeled it off. :( spraying over a primer car is a terrible idea. The removal becomes 100 times more...

    How do i make carbon fibre parts

    I've been looking over some ideas on the same thing for my spare hood. Has anyone had any luck with the vinyl? And where did you get it from?

    Cleaning. Simple green. Scared....

    Peeled off to the areas where it got thin. Just breaks off. It's a bi*** in small areas.
  33. Tha Fella Dylan

    Cleaning. Simple green. Scared....

    I recently plastidip'd my car and the over spray is EVERYWHERE. Even with taping everything off, this crap is everywhere. Would simple green (diluted of course) be safe to use on the entire car? Or would this not work on latex paint? Everything means windows, trim, tailights, etc.... Looking for...

    Plasti dipped my winter car

    Dipping my car white today. Was red but clear coat peel has made it look like shit/pink. I'll post up pics when I'm done with my 2g.

    Plasti dipped my winter car

    Damn! That was just plastidip spray paint cans? How many cans did you end up using? Looks amazing!

    Plasti dipped my winter car

    Do you have to buy the gallons online? I'm interested if it can be purchased locally.

    Rim color choices?? Opinions needed.

    That's awesome man. I thought about doing the same for my red 2g. Where'd you get enkei decals?

    Back from tire shop with bad news

    I just spent two days trying to replace my hub assembly. It's easy as hell but if you live with rust, good luck. I took it to a shop and they did it for 50 bucks because I had the part already.

    Front Body Kit Grill

    You can't post on a performance forum about aftermarket cosmetics without expecting to get burned. I even shook my head at your bumper. But with that being said, try photoshop with different photos. The only Mits I've seen pull off bumper grills was the Evo 8. Good luck! If you mess up, there's...

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    Made my appointment to get her fixed. If the play on the wheel is mainly from 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock, this is a wheel bearing issue right? I just wanna double check.

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    I just finished doing my tie rod ends guys. Thanks for all the input. But for who asked, I prefer to do things myself. It gives me knowledge and practice for the future. Some people are okay with paying people to do the work but I like to learn. I hate shops messing with my car. My last mechanic...

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    One last question. For the tie rod ends, if I was gonna remove the wheel to adjust it. Do I just remove one with the steering wheel straight? This is gona take a whole....,smh
  45. Tha Fella Dylan

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    Lol I know. I'm gonna buy the whole assembly. Cani adjust the tie rods with wheels mounted?
  46. Tha Fella Dylan

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    Ahhh. Scotty Kilmer says to loosen the nut and just turn the rod. I guess this might be easier than I thought. Have you done it with the wheel still mounted?
  47. Tha Fella Dylan

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    UPDATE: The wheel bearing ended up being my problem. I replaced the oem tie rods because they were shot. Now my tires sit like ducks feet. The fronts stick out. I've read the alignment threads but they don't mention how to adjust the tie rod ends. This whole thing has angered me. I've read and...

    Freshly Painted, now to the wheels...

    Nice job. I plan on respraying mine too. What size tank did you use? My profile pic has "phantom grey" paint on my Evo 9 Enkei's. Its a nice dark gunmetal color but still shines. It's a Toyota color though. Lol.

    Wheel bearing, a DIY or no?

    Is that what it was for you in that video? And you mentioned that the ball joint and out tie rod end are the same part. Is that true?
