Advice!?! [Oct. 23rd, 2005|05:59 pm]

[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]
[Current Music |Tricky feat. Eminem- "Welcome to Detroit City"]

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS it currently has 126k on a rebuilt engine. I had to get it rebuilt at 104k because of a blown head gasket. The car is currently mechanicly sound except for a needed front end alignment due to an accident in early June. Also needed because of the accident is a driver's side front fender, driver's side head light and a front bumber. Other damage done to the car because of the accident has been fixed and was a lot of front axle damage. Here's the advice I need. In November I am getting $2,500. Should I hook-up the car, I'm talking rims, bodykit, tint, wing, lowered, custom paint, fenders...the whole 9 or should I replace the parts with stock parts found at a salavge yard and trade it in on a newer and better Eclipse? Like I said, nothing is majorly wrong with the car however I am just having a hard time deciding what I should really do. As you can tell I have already put a good bit of money into it due to the head gasket and all that needed to be done along with that. The car is also inspected and emissioned until May of 2006. If anyone has advice please let me know. Here also is a pic (of the good side of the car...as I have no damaged pics available currently) so you can let me know more of what you think. Thanks in advance.

My '97 Eclipse [Sep. 2nd, 2005|07:47 am]

Ok, I wanna update everyone on my car situation. Kerry took my car in to one of his friends to get looked at. His friend looked it over and it turned out that it wasn't as bad as my Dad was making it out to be. So we're going to have him fix it for us. Which is cheaper anyways. Kerry said he would pay for it. What a nice boyfriend! His friend is charging us the $150 for the parts and $50 to have them put in. He's a great guy really. So that's $200 and I have my car fixed. Then I have to decide whether I'm going to go to a junk yard and get fenders or get after market ones and then get a bodykit. So we'll see what happens. Also...when the car hit the wall the mirror glass fell out of it. Does anyone know where I can get the mirror? I really don't want to order it from Mitsubishi, but I don't think junk yards would have a mirror that wasn't busted. But other than that the car will be back in no time! I can't wait to be driving her again. As soon as I get her Kerry is going to be selling his Civic (is anyone interested?) so I'll be getting his MTX system in my car. Yay! Just one more thing that will need redone...the speakers. Haha!

Sell or Fix? [Jun. 24th, 2005|11:49 am]

I slammed my 97 Eclipse into a wall...does anyone want to buy it? I did some body damage and the car needs an alignment, but I don't have the money currently to fix the body work. I would be willing to be nego. on the price. I am trying to get at least $2000 if not $2500. It stills drives, like I said it just needs to be realigned. The body work is a driver's side fender and driver's side headlight. The headlight is not busted, just cracked at the corner. The lights still work. And the driver's side rear quarter panel needs to be buffed out. Also, I need a mirror. I have the arm, but not the mirrior. If you're interested or have any advice on a cheap way to fix this...let me know. All comments appreciated.

I dont know if this will qualify as HOT or NOT as I see there is some rating involved. I searched LJ for some car communities. Introduction first. My name is Amanda, I am 21, married, live in Michigan and LOOOVE cars. I have a few. 5. A few are dull and a few are on their way.

I myself have a 2001 Blazer LT. Its pretty basic I guess. I bought a clear lights all around and that was a pain in the ass b/c only a handfull of places make them with the intergrated fog lights. I have some 20inch something or another wheels. 3 TV's (in dash AVIC-N1 w/ XM, 2  directed monitors in the headrests), a build in Beltronics radar detector with scrambler also, directed 1500D amp, pair of 12inch kicker L5's. I have a ram air hood in waiting and also a full Xenon body kit with air dam that I dont know if is going to make it on or not. Maybe only the air dam.

1989 Trans Am GTA. She is HOT HOT HOT. Stock right now. Have lots of plans to juice up the 350 but just got her in time for storage last year and havent gotten it out yet. In need of a paint job since its from down south. Have my old ass soundstream and a pair of 12s in it for now (want more L5s or L7s I think) with my older panasonic deck.  Plans include paint, new spoiler, engine mods and covering the seats in leather. Going to keep the rest stock b/c I like it as it is and thats the GTA appeal.

My husband has two also. One is a 95 Lincoln Continental. Slightly grandma like I guess but it was just for the winter but now he wants to put wheels on it and a stereo etc and keep it too. No pics of that. Its mint and the same color as my GTA.

He also has a 1995 Impala SS and its the dark grey green. He would ONLY get that one b/c it was limited production color in a limited production car. Only 4442 made (sad I know this) He has a few things done to the engine but is waiting until next year b/c he is getting it fully rebuild (was a delivery car and has close to 200,000 miles and we want the #'s to all match) 20inch wheels (will be 22s soon). He has 2 models back of the Pioneer dvd player with the dolby 5.1 and a full audiobahn stereo system. By aug it will have the 22's and air bags. After that it will just need the engine, new leather and a PAINT!
