[ChaosweaveR]'s Mitsubishi Galant ES Progression

Wellp, decided to make a progression thread for the lady's ride, since I've been tinkering with it lately...mainly cleaning and waxing it. :lol:

2003 Galant ES, with the 2.4L SOHC. Looking to spiffy up the little bugger. Me, personally, I actually like this gen Galant, and I'm fond of the VR-4 models the US never got.

Here's the silver streak: HELLASTOCK

Well, only one mod. Car came with these 15" TSWs.

And as of yesterday...debadged and ditched all the decals on the bumper and trunk. Peace sign was a magnet, so I lucked out. :lol:

First off, went after that ES badge:

Then a bumper sticker to attend to:

Coated it with goo-gone, and slowly peeled the sucker off:

Left some nasty residue, but the goo-gone made quick work of that.

Aside from scrapes from the g/f using the trunk, and rock chips, paint was still good underneath:

Then attended to the "Galant" emblem:

Hey, where did it go?

Then dusted off the cars for some quick pics.

Difference is that American cars unless they're cheapo cheapo usually have some soul and styling to them they're not just machines, they're cars. Jap cars are just machines IMO...

and :lol: not picking just making an observation

Plans mainly include the VR-4 front clip, wheels, JDM tails and break away mirrors.

Speaking of wheels, the Galant may see my ROHs later this summer if I get the Rotas for my GA.

I know I'm planning on getting the Kouki JDM tails for the Galant, but in the meantime I decided to tinker with the stock tails.

Car needed a good cleaning anyway.

Got the tails out and cleaned them:

Marked off the backup light:

Tails look good but on the car they look out of place a bit.

The Hyundai doesn't look half bad with the tinted tails... Wait did I just say that?

Incoming mods for the Galant!

Just purchased a short ram AEM intake, and later on in the week, nabbing a set of mint 2nd gen JDM tails.

Not much of a fan, of any of it, but the work you're putting into a car that's not yours is admirable.

I swear, it's a compulsion...I mod every car I get my paws on! ;)
