    anyone done this? I want to convert my 95 talon to a 98 eclipse body, all i need is front and rear bumper, side skirts, taillights and reverse lights. I heard the headlights will be a little gappy but nothing too bad, other than that its a perfect fit correct?

    yea, all you need are the bumpers and lights. everything else is the same on both cars. but you might as well get the 97+ headlights then as well, the 95 headlights are longer than the 97's and you would have to modify the front bumper to make it fit with the 95 headlights

    I always laugh when people say they're "investing" money into their cars. No matter how much customizing you do to your car, that's money out the window you'll never see again. :big grin::big grin::big grin:

    1. Everything bolts right on except for the center piece of the Eclipse taillights, you will have to make some brackets, but it isn't hard.
    2. The headlights will look like ass. Get some cheap black housing projectors off ebay if you don't want to pay for OEM 97-99's.
    3. There were a limited amount of 95-96 Eclipses sold in Japan - all FWD turbo's. The only dofferences were a front lip, side markers, and folding mirrors.

    You dont have to make a bracket, if you have an air chisel you can take off the one on your car and mark where it needs to go and just use some self tapping screws to remount it (or tackweld it) you will also have to drill holes for the eclipse center peice.
