    Replaced the window switch and now the passenger window works like a dream. SO much more comfortable driving with both windows down. Now to finish swapping the AC blower motor so i can have AC for the wife and kids. Plus it'll help when winter hits. lol

    On another note, i finished my online Auto Repair Technician course with a final score of 85%. Very Happy

    A couple of days ago it was 105 outside when i got off work and i only had one window working. It would have been much more tolerable with two.

    Found a new wing on Ebay that measures 56 inches across, stands 6 inches high (or just a bit over that) and has an inside base dimension of 23 inches. The current wing measures 50 inches across, stands 8 inches at the wing, 10 inches over all, and has an inside dimension of 36 inches. The wing I'm looking at is made of ABS, but looks like some of the carbon fibre wings i like.

    It seems that i could paint it to match. Make it look sort of like a factory option. lol

    not a big fan of the bumper and I like the second wing because I love carbon fiber and the first wing is too low profile. As far as body kits I like stock or something that looks like it could be stock. Everyone has their own likes though so if you like it then it's good.

    Not a big fan of the rear bumper either. For some reason I was just never really into body kits such as those. I do like the wing choices though. Get that front bumper on there and lets see some shots!

    Oh it'll pull together nicely. I saw a red Eclipse with the same bumper I'm putting on. The only difference is mine will have fogs. lol. Unfortunately the bumper isn't done. We don't have enough money to get it painted and pay bills. Sarah is about to start with this home business here soon. Once that gets going in the next few weeks she can drop Walmart and devote much more time to it. Its 100% legit too, which was my first question when we first hard about incomeathome.com. it's done off the computer, and is totally dependant on how much you want to work on it. Sarah is basically the person who contacts the customer about their order with Herbalife. I'd check it out.

    sorry about the rambling there guys. I am thinking about a new rear bumper, I'm just not too sure which one i want to go with. whichever one i do, it'll need to go with a custom widebody.

    Found me some new headlights the other day. They kinda have an Aston Martin feel to them with the placement of the LEDs. (yes, I'm a sucker for an Aston Martin. I would GLADLY drop $60,000 for a six year old DBS with 25,000 miles on it, manual with Obsidian interior. I saw one on eBay motors a few months back.)



    and this is one of my top 5 favorite cars.


    This particular one is for sale in Florida for $65,000. It's a 2006 automatic with paddle shifters, 5.9L V12 and only 36,956 miles on the clock.

    Holy hell, Addicted2Speed IS alive. lol. good to see you again man. if the Carbon Creations wing doesn't work, how about this?




    It's the same as the Carbon Creations one, just paintable. I think it would be a better choice seeing as how i want to paint the Eclipse Millennium Jade. I'll see if i can find smoked headlights too. The Smoked tails and smoked turns i have will look great with the Jade. maybe i should put some tint on the foglights?


    Imagine, if you can, this look (minus the sunroof) in Millennium Jade and smoked heads, turns, and fogs with a carbon fiber hood (NON OEM style. I cant stand the look.)

    I dunno, I still like the look of this bumper. I might get it down the road so i can switch it up every once in a while.

    It'll be a CF hood and hatch, maybe mirrors if i can find the right ones. I'm thinking go with a paintable wing bc of the look. I dont want to get more carbon on my car than Jade. But I'm warming to the idea Denis. Wink

    But in all seriousness, what do you think of the idea of smoked head, tail, turn, and fog lights, carbon fiber hatch with a Jade Shine Flared wing, carbon fiber hood, charcoal grey or gunmetal 18-19 inch three piece rims and carbon fiber mirrors against a Millennium Jade paint?
