Thread: 05 KIA Spectra5

  1. #1

    Default 05 KIA Spectra5

    i get alot of people liking my car and i get my share of haters
    so like your mother said if you got nothing nice to say then keep it to yourself

    i got wheels first cause i needed tires so i just got a cheap package.
    keep in mind this is my first car build and i wasn't into cars as much as i am now.


    Stock engine bay


    lowered it on springs first with 17'' wheels


    ended up hating that and my rear shocks blew so i spent the money on coilovers


    got hit by a car


    fixed


    coilovers came in


    started to paint the interior black


    Coilovers installed



    LED dome light


    home depot lip haha




    DDM HIDs


    winter mode



    header install and painted valve cover and CAI



    So far thats it.

    Future plans:

    looking for a rad fabric for headliner / interior
    Lightweight pulleys
    new wheels, this i need really bad to complete the look!
    and i'm going to get a cat back system built

    This picture makes it look like you have a carbon hood:



    Which might actually look pretty good on your car.

    ^YES. agree on both points.
    even a black/dark grey hood would look good as that picture shows

    attempted to finish my interior paint but its to cold!

    fusion paint on the door
    regular rusto on the bottom half of the dash

    fusion wins way more durable

    He means don't put the CF vinyl on it - paint it. I agree. The CF vinyl is not a good route. Flat/satin black vinyl would look better, if you're not going to paint it.

    yeah just saying vinyl cf on the outside is pretty rice-o-licious, i just think it kills the look knowing its vinyl trying to be something its not.

    What springs were you on before coilovers?

  19. #18

    Default Re: 05 KIA Spectra5

    they were made by progress
    i had to cut the front springs because i think they were for the v6 tiburon

    Default Re: 05 KIA Spectra5

    How many coils did you cut? How was the ride after you cut them? I have progress springs on my spec5 with Tiburon kybs but I want the front lower. Thanks.

    Default Re: 05 KIA Spectra5

    one coil, it still didnt match the front was slightly higher
    the ride was exactly the same, i couldn't tell the difference other than it being lower.
