  1. General Information
    式Sensha
    2014
    Mitsubishi
    Mirage GLX
    Magenta
    5MT
     
    Details

    Gray plastidip bumper
    OEM tow loop installed with copious blue threadlock
    Formfit hood deflector
    Curt tubular class 1 hitch receiver
    Anderson plug with 8 Gauge cables to battery
    Blue led parking lights
    Led strips to light up lower grille corners

    Knockoff MUGEN Knockoffs. Literally less than half the price of regular knockoffs. Super pleased they're actually really high quality.

    No mods yet, but have gone through front suspension and applied anti-seize to every bolt that I could still get out (not all of them)

    Wheels from '99 Integra GSR
    Toyo Extensa HPs

    Thanks for the warm welcome! Looking forward to doing quite a bit on the car this summer. I'm working on a riser/platform for the rear for tool storage and to provide a flat cargo area with the rear seats folded, (toyed with idea of rear seat delete but I don't have a good place to store them). I'm really excited by all of the aero work I see on here, less because I'm super worried about fuel econ, but more because it's interesting. In pursuit of doing something original, I want to make air curtains for the front bumper. I'm also planning on a rear bar stiffener (sway bar), hitch reciever, hood struts, and contemplating a front recovery winch if I can find a solid place to mount it and have the extra storage space. I figure if I have a car that won't turn heads, I'll make it tilt heads to the side in confusion :P

    Curt 1.25" reciever from the homeless despot $115 shipped, took an hour to install without even jacking up the car. Ball mount not included, got that at a rummage sale for nothing.

    Blue LED DRL, any parts store has these in multiple colors, interchangable with certain interior bulbs. I have white leds for dome light and trunk courtesey light as well.

    Not running these Integra GSR wheels yet because I need smaller tires. Debating between Kumho Ecsta PA31's or Toyo Extensa HP's

    Haha, yeah I agree! I went out to mine the other day (which is black) and was wowed by the dirtyness.

    Hi Bzacon, nice Mirage, looks great. I like what you have done with the car.

    Sorry don't mean to bother but where did you find that bug deflector for your hood? I wouldn't mind getting one for my own Mirage. Thanks!

    No problem, ordered it from form fit in Canada.
    They list separate variants for early 6th gen and facelift (2017+ I think) models. https://www.formfithoodprotectors.com/form-fit-2/
