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.
