Didn't really get alot done but I got my tail lights all wired up correctly and as clean as I could. Talon to eclipse rear end complete. I'm very happy with how it turned out. I also left the old wire there if I ever want to convert back easily.
The build is looking great man!
I'm just curious on what you did with the reverse light wiring?

I did my tails over 10 years ago but didn't do much with the reverse lights after blowing a couple fuses haha.

I know there are past threads for this but figured I'd ask you since you just went through it. Was there any type of mod you needed to do to the reverse wire connections to get it to work right?

Thanks man it's coming along nice. As for the reverse lights I used a test light and found which wire was for the reverse. I cut the plug way back so I could keep it looking factory. All the wires were the same color. The brake lights were a little tougher to figure out but wasn't bad that was really the only wire I had to cut was for the brake and reverse. Otherwise everything else worked normal I didn't have to swap any relays or anything like that.

I've got a ways to go but the frame is half way welded in and was able to support the engine no problem. So now engine is out and I'll finish doing all the body work. I still have to cut and move the drivers side strut tower an inch forward so that will be the next hurdle.

Good thing I bought a brand new oil pump. Found my stash of other new parts I had hiding along with a brand new oil pump.

Decided to take a break from grinding and welding and focus more on completing the engine.

A little update on the car also I only have the bottoms of the strut towers to weld in and it's pretty much done.

I got my brake and clutch pedals in last night, not much room to work with. Now I wait for the transmission to get here. I may throw the harness and interior in while I wait.

I got some of the engine bay painted and the dash set back in place. I also had a little spare time to clean up the subframe and paint that as well. All painted with por 15 to try and keep rust at a minimum.

Props for taking this on man. Are you staying fwd?
Thank you! I plan on staying front wheel drive for now until I'm able to source awd parts. That'll be the next big project on this car. I really appreciate everyone that's been following and commenting it definitely keeps me going.
