The Eclipse to Talon conversion is moving along. First, I had to remove all of the Eclipse bumper skin support brackets. The Harbor Freight spot weld cutter actually worked well.




Then, I painted the bare spots and riveted the brackets onto the Talon location. I used seam sealer on all of the joints. Once that cured, I covered all of the rear sheetmetal with undercoating.




There are some wiring differences between Talons and Eclipses since Talons have dedicated turn signal bulbs and Eclipses just blink the tail lights. I cut the wire to the turn signal/hazard controller which lets the controller know that the brake pedal has been depressed. I then ran a wire from the third brake light power back to the brake light bulbs in my tail lights. I had to remove pins from a spare wiring harness and add them to the existing Eclipse plugs. The functionality was there, but the turn signals blinked too fast. That is because the Talon uses a single turn signal bulb (per side) and the Eclipse turn signal/hazard controller expects two bulbs. I wired a 3 ohm 50W resistor in parallel with each turn signal bulb to simulate another bulb. That slowed the blinking down to the correct pace.




The bumper and tail lights are installed and I'm half Talon now.
