The front/rear lip and sideskirts are muy bueno! You should post a DIY on them so I can make a set for mine (also pewter GLS) Very very nice! Only thing you need is a 25% tint all the way around, use silver metal film so it isn't really transparent.(Not the totally silver stuff though that is waaay ghetto)

Check the archive for his posts on the lip kit, tint would look very nice but don't use the film stuff that will be out of style sooooooo fast.

A few new pics over the weekend, following getting it back from the hood repair/repaint. The eyelids have been repainted with them to be an exact match now. Looked great before, but 10x better now.

I like the idea on your new sig, but the pictures are all too small, maby because I have my laptop set to 1600X1200, but other peoples look good sized.

That is a GT thats why the yellow bumper lens are not changed..They do not make them in clear for the GT....I like the drop and I also like the grill but the bottom piece is a little to much for me.

It's the EXD Etched Glass Decals, placed on a plain chrome plate. The plain chrome plates ran me $15 each on Ebay - plus a box of bandaids, those things had damn sharp edges -lol.

As for my signature, I wanted something smaller. It looks ok in 1280x1024, if someone has a hard time seeing the pictures, I guess it's just motivation to click the link to see more.

I read the whole thread and searched for the DIY about your lip kit and couldn't find anything. I'm just curious; where do the side skirts come from? are the back pieces from a 90's Accord? and Is the front lip from a Legacy?

thanks for the link. I'd been looking at the accord piece for a while but it looks different than I thought it would. I have another part in mind though, I won't bite off yours. Looks good though, especially with the spoiler.

Looks great Hyunlan2,
How are those door sills working out? Just ordered some. Do they scratch easy? May put some 3M clear on mine. Any plans on doing anything else? 'Cause you know the wife will beat you if you start modding that Sant Fe. Eh?

The door sills haven't had a problem. No scratches, not even on the driver's door. I don't know what's in my plans. I probably won't be adding anything else, just changing (like different fog lights, or different trim pieces). I would like to do some interior upholstry too, but that takes time and patients - neither of which I have much of lately.

I'm open to suggestions from anyone. I know lowering would be the first thing people yell out, however, I don't really want it lower. If I did it would only be Eibachs.

I don't anticipate too much $$ going towards the Elantra at this point. I'm pretty happy with it. I'll probably put that mod money towards my new garage, or put it in a Jar for the next 2 years to put towards a 3.3L Sonata... can't let my wife have the bigger engine (2.7L Delta in the SF).

Were you going to tint your windows?
Speaking of Fog lights -- (because my patience is thin as well) Is there any easier way to install? I mean it took me forever to get the OEM piece out, now I am dreading to put fog lights.
