Been a long time reader of the forums finally decided to make an account. Learning all i can about the ins and out of Evo's just encase i do buy one in the future. i like a lot of the information i find on the site. Im an administrator on Lancertuners and a Moderator on Projectlancer and pretty much have been into cars for as long as I remember but it really took off when i lived in Japan for 5 years.

Iv had my Lancer ES for a little under 4 years now. Need something affordable with good gas mileage since i take long trips, while i pay off my student loans. Original i didnt plan on Modding the car but that changed, i wanted to mod the car to be subtle and not pretend for it to be something that its not im not really about being flashy sometimes less is more. It was easier to work on the ES since it didnt not come with any of the ground effects the GTS comes with.

I work for Mercedes Benz so eventually i will end up grabbing an C63 AMG or search for an Evo VIII if i decide to stay with nippon imports but i will keep the Lancer after all the work iv put into her.



Here are some pics Thanks for looking

Id like to thank everyone for the warm welcome and thanks for the compliments. I believe in keeping clean just because your rides not fast doesnt mean it cant look good.

I will have pics up soon of my CF interior wrap the OEM plastic is of horrible quality. Also, hopefully i will have my Rexspeed duckbill rear lip soon.

Man.. looks clean. Is that nose piece an overlay? I thought your car was an EVO for a second lol.

You going to get the evo x hood and the evo x high rise spoiler or a duckbill lip?

Looks awesome man.

Thanks a lot man. I get the "is your car an Evo?" thing all the time. Its kind of depressing when i say no. But the N/A Lancer and the Evo chassis are so similar sometimes it hard to tell them apart lol.

The nose piece is an overlay but it takes work to get it to look right. You have to cut the holes out of your front bumper so it will fit. Then you have to cut the foam behind it out and spray paint the chassis behind it black. I heated it up and molded it to the front. There are small gaps but they are not noticeable. Then i used epoxy and clamps and let it sit over night. Once it was done i bought matte black car paint spray painted it black. Lots of work but worth it. Honestly the front nose piece is what i love about the Evo X's the most. Honestly, most Lancer guys dont do it correctly and it looks horrible if you are going to do something put the work into it.

I will be buying the Duckbill rear lip im not big into large spoilers that dont serve a function.

I want a new hood and honestly the OEM Evo hood is the best one out there i dont like majority of the aftermarket ones out. But im afraid that if i get it it really will look like im trying to copy an Evo. So im sitting on it for the time being and working on other projects like the CF wrap.

Hey guys i have a little update decided i wanted to do some work once New years was over so i started working with some CF wrap and finished up mostly. I wanted something very clean yet distinctive without going overboard. As im sure you can tell by now im very particular about what i do on the Lancer.

I also have some Bride Material on the way from Redline hopefully will be here soon.

I also have some Matte Black Black Vinyl on the way for the roof, front lip and my ARS Evo X nose. Im honestly tired of touching up the paint on these parts every 2 months its just aggravating. So iv decided to wrap them for more durability.

Rvinyl Carbon Fiber wrap
Mirrors
B&C pillars
Interior trim & Ashtray
















Also smoked my turn signals to match my tails
