    Question Building something out of a 99 Eclipse GSX

    I bought a totaled 99 Eclipse GSX and I want to build something out of it. It was totaled because of frame and body damage and is now a donor car. What can I make out of it?

    I would like to make something a little radical out of it and need the help of some creative geniuses. I have looked at kit cars, but have found nothing for the GSX motor and drive train. I am considering trying to make an AWD Spyder, or maybe just build another GSX and chop the top off, but I'd need a good shop to support that. Recommendations??? (I raced SCCA open cockpit SRF for 10 years and have a thing for open cockpit) My brother wants me to build a sand rail, but I'd just rather a street rail if I go the mad max direction.

    It has damage to the frame and body, but the drive train looks good. It also has had a lot of work done to it before it was totaled. Engine, stereo, interior are all upgraded and seem well done. It also has turbo timer, boost controller, and tons of other modifications. I have a detailed list of the upgrades, I will have to find it somewhere in the papers that came with the car. Lots of GReddy. I believe I have a good motor and drive train, even the wheels are good, VOLK. The only concern is that the inter-cooler and radiator are squished together and almost every body panel is damaged.

    I hope to provide project updates and photos.

    Thank you for your time and ideas,
    Arjay

    If I have committed any faux pas, please yell at me so that I may learn.

    Even God says we should bear arms. Luke 22:36 And He said to them, "But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.

    Thanks DSMDealer. I would totally make roadkill if I had a frame.

    Seems like there's not a lot out there to do with a DSM drive train besides build another.

    I would like to find some help with making an AWD spyder. Anyone interested in taking on a project. I don't have the garage or tools.
