Hello

Hey guys, I thought I would join the group. Maybe I can learn something or even possibly contribute in some way. Some of you may already know me but i should say that I have been ecomodding my 94' geo metro for a little over a year now. Here's a pic from summer,
I've since changed the airdam to about half the height shown and the law made me add an external mirror

Hello and glad to see you. Now I can post pics of my own multicolor metro, no disrespect intended.After seeing your headlights I'm wondering if they can be modified to fit my '93? I was looking for some lexan at work this am to cover the 4x4 parachutes that are orginal equipment on mine. Any how Welcome and salutations. S

To tell you the truth, I'm not sure if mine are stock to a 94 metro. the red parts on my car are from a 91 sprint I believe, so who knows. Sounds like a good mod though.

Welcome, welcome.

I like your sig line - nice record tank! Did I miss a thread at teamswift about it? You'll have to fill us in on the details.

Thanks, I don't think I posted it up on teamswift. I kinda quit doing that after so many posts of disbelief .

I hear you. Maybe the fact that at teamswift the fuel economy forum is a sub-forum within a larger board means a lot of people pop into the FE conversations who might not otherwise think about the subject matter.

I do recall how frustrated I was with the Flea's FE performance before I started EOC (and later, P&G). At that time I would have found 70 mpg very, very hard to believe. But I can also tell you I would have pestered the person making the claim to fill me in on technique & mods, rather than just dismissing him.

Hi there y'all. i'm new here but I have this tid bit:

My Geo Mtro had the cut out Camaro like headlight when I got her. First thing I did was find the aerodynamic ones from 91-92-93. You also need the mounting brackets. Everything is plug and play....except for the plugs...you need to swap them. Remember the colors. Same ones. good luck...By the way, you can get rid of the scratches on the aerodynamic headlights with silver polish on a flannel cloth. Rub and polish, stand back and admire.
