The Red Rocket is a 2005 Elantra GLS 5-door. I have made several mods, trying to use as many Hyundai corporation parts as possible to keep the OEM feel. So for my rims, I got a set of Elantra GTs, the sway bar is from the Tibby, as are both the subwoofer and the amp that drives it. The strut bar is from the Kia Spectra. This car and all its parts, to the greatest extent, are Made in Korea. One unique mod is a storage tray I built the fits under the cargo area floor, keeping the cargo area clean while carrying around tools and such. Maybe I could have saved some of these mods and just bought an Elantra GT, but I didn't want the leather seats in the Texas heat.

CD changer & Tib amp:

A unique mod.... I built this tray under my trunk floor so I can carry tools and stuff and still have a clean trunk:

We all know the stock horn is wimpy, wimpy, wimpy. I added two notes from a Nissan in a salvage yard. It retains the nature of the original horn but is a lot louder and more assertive. And a coat of paint dresses them up a bit:

Another unique mod- my backlit grill. This pic also shows off my aftermarket fog lights mounted in the OEM slots and my latest mod- LED city lights:

And my latest mods (Nov. 16)- I cleared the front turn signals:

And just as I was finishing that up... ding-dong! My GonzoSport Removable Rear Strut Bar was delivered!

And Nov. 18- tried out some LED lights for the backlit grill:
