My 2001 Mirage To EVO V Conversion
My 2001 Mirage To EVO V Conversion
I will update this thread when I get more parts in.
But for now here are the current parts that I have.
1. A 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage with 108,000 miles
2. EVO V OEM Fenders
3. OEM EVO V Side Skirts With OEM Clips and Connectors
4. OEM EVO V Rear Wide Arch Set Complete with clips and weather stripping.
5. I am picking up an EVO V Carbon Fiber Hood today and EVO V Fog lights. I will post pictures when I get the parts. I also ordered a set of EVO V Headlights with amber sides.
Hopefully I can start the part swapping very soon. I will post pictures of the progress as time goes on so keep on checking.

i have been wanting to do an evo vi. my plan is to get a jdm engine front clip and then see if i could ever find the rest of the car later and build it on the mirage chassis. evos have more spot welds than lancer or mirage. this is critical, there is sheet metal on the evo that lancers or mirages dont have. Don't just do a visual swap and just somthing with it body work.

1st Mod Installed
EVO V Carbon Fiber Hood
I got a good deal on a set of 17X7.5 Volk TE37 Wheels. It is the same as the EVO V wheel fitment with 225/45/17 tires.
I modified and cut the two front seat brackets only, the rear brackets are bolton.
Now I need your help to find the SSL Leather Passenger seat for my car.
New updates, I got a whole bunch of EVO V OEM parts.
I installed the fenders today.
Now I need to get a hold of a Dent Removal Guy to fix the passenger side fender.
Installed the OEM EVO V Side Skirts.
What about fitment?.....
Well since it's OEM fitment is perfect! No modifications or sanding. I just made about 6 holes on the side of the car to hold the clips and the side skirts in place.
I used some self tapping screws and washers underneath the side skirts to make it more durable.
It will look like the picture below when Im done
