    I contacted them. Hopefully they aren't TOO expensive. Carbon is kinda low on the list at the moment. I'll definitely have them do carbon on the Skyline.

    Looks like it. I can haul parts for the Eclipse too, so it can't be all bad. I posted some in the "new" car thread.

    Ok, so the only update i have is that Sarah and I have decided to forgo the Civic i posted in Need to Vent. We're looking at getting a 94 GMC 1500 4x4 single cab so i can get back and forth to work. One of the medics at my Guard unit wants 800 for it. It needs TLC, but nothing more than i can handle. Besides, not only do we need a truck from time to time, but it frees Sarah up to get a car she actually wants. Maybe that silver BMW 745Li we saw a few months back. lol

    Ok, so my wife an I were looking at one of my Modified mags, picking out wheels for the wagon (Axis OG Oldskool is what Sarah picked. I like the look.) And i mentioned i wanted to paint the wagon Bayside Blue. Since we're painting the Eclipse Millennium Jade and all with carbon pieces. Well, Sarah mentioned "Why don't we do the wagon Millennium Jade and the Eclipse Bayside Blue? The wagon, which will be rare enough in America, on top of the fact it's a Skyline eventually going to be packing an RB26DETT, the wagon could rock the Jade better than the Eclipse because it's one of the rarest colors on the R34 Skylines. The Eclipse could totally rock the Bayside Blue, add on a couple of carbon pieces and it'll look sweet" (her words not mine. lol) I love that woman. So, as I'm sure you've guessed, the color plans have changed. We'll go with a Millennium Jade R31 wagon, the Axis OG Oldskool 15" wheels, and paint the D52 Eclipse Bayside Blue and accent it with some carbon fiber and some wheels. Not sure which ones on the car though... Stay tuned for that.

    And here's the Axis OG Oldskool wheels. Machined with black accents.

    Tell my wife. Lol. And I dunno why I didn't think of it sooner, but the color change does sound better. Plus, there arent a whole lot of blue Eclipses. I personally have seen one since I've owned my Eclipse.

    yeah the blue and carbon will look very nice together and a wing as well as long as you don't go too crazy with it lol. I have not seen any Eclipses of that year out here all done up just paint and wheels everyone here builds up the 95 model which I thought about buying a GSX lol.

    OK, so.the wing I already have or the Shine flared wing that sits closer to.the decklid? Gsx's aren't bad at all. They had the performance.

    the current wing looks good and if you went with a different one tht sat slightly lower you could go with a carbon wing

    Found me some new wheels for the Eclipse. A set of Volk Racing TE37SL Limited Edition Super Lap wheels in 17"x7.5" 5x114.3 in Pressed Graphite for $2,823.40 plus shipping and handling. I wish my credit was better so i could get a loan. Yeah, i'm crazy enough to get a lona to buy parts for the car, but not pay bills. Tuning 'til you're broke FTW!

    Think those would match the carbon fiber?

    yes the TE37 is an amazing wheel and I will be doing the 5 lug conversion on my hatch just to accommodate some nice takata green TE37's lol.

    D they make Takata greens in 4x100. They even made them in 4x114.3 and I planned on picking up a set of the time attack editions until I found that they don't make a size that properly fits the wheel well of the prelude. Mf8s were definitely more to my liking anyways.
    They'd look sick on the wagon or the eclipse though.

    Hmm, I think the Takata Green ones would look a little TOO outlandish under the Eclipse once it's repainted in Bayside Blue. The wagon is going to be Millennium Jade, But I definitely want either the Axis OG Oldskool under that or a set of TE37s.

    Looks like I'll have to get 2 set of wheels, plus whatever comes on the wagon. Gotta have a set for winter ya know? lol

    I know that the TE37 came in the Takata green in a 4x100 but very few and they even more expensive than the 5 lug ones. I talked with the guys over at ICB about getting some and they through up a price colser to 4k where as the 5 lugs where only about 2500-3k. I like those OG wheels they would look sick under an older wagon and would complete that classic look.
