Hello everyone,
I've joined your forum because I'm sure I'll be needing to pick some brains about my evo conversion project.
I'm looking forward to browsing the forum for a bit of info.
Can't wait to get started!

Welcome along! Feel free to pose your questions, I've done an evo conversion too so should be able to help.

Hi, I'm new here and I need some advice. I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Colt 1300 GLX (CJ0) and I would like to buy for this car a pair of strut tower bar (rear and front) but I have no idea what kind of bar would be fit in my car. I was enquiring a few places where I saw strut bars for Mirage (CJ1A), (CJ4A and CT9A) which is looks like that I need to but they said these wouldn't be suitable for me.
What is the true? Have a 2003 colt (CJ0) and Mirage IV (CJ1A) got a different chassis? Isn't they the same?
Do anyone know that where can I buy a proper pair which would be suitable for my car?
So that's my question :)

Thanks your help in advance.

The brace for the CJ4A will fit yours. There's no chassis difference at all between the two. You can also use Evo 4-9 front upper strut braces (2 point, the 3 point version would require some fabrication for the bulkhead mount).

Thanks a lot for this information it was very helpful :) I have already bought a pair of strut tower bar:D I also bought a set of 14" Momo corse rim with converter ring (ET35) (it was very cheap and I think it looks great so I bought it :) ). The original Mitsubishi alloy rim that actually on my car has ET46 size so my new rim will be 11mm further from the original position but I don't think so that this can occur any problem.
What's your opinion? This rim will be fit on my car or I have to modify something?

As long as the stud pattern is 4 x 100 (if i remember correctly), then you'll be fine, 11mm should be fine i.e. no rubbing on arches.
