Default Beeman's Elantra

Hi guys ,
I have been frequenting this forum for some time now. I had been meaning to mod my elantra for the longest time. Finally i have managed, mainly with the body kit i.e..........

Made and designed the kit myself ......so would love to hear your comments. Im a wanna be car modder so this is my first attempt. Have been inspired by some of the excellent modders present on this forum.

Some under the hood mods include a in-the-box-air-filter and some iridium plugs.........(ok not some serious mods....but will do for now!!!)
Next stage would be an exhaust change though not a complete free-flow....

Head on view:-


Front profiles:-


Side & rear views:-


Coming soon: !!!
With spoiler.............something that blends into the car and does not stick out.........watch this space....
Would love it if anyone has some suggestions with regards to a spoiler at the rear....thanks.

Beeman, thats a nice attempt considering this is your first time you tried it. Well I am not good at designs but you need some air to enter your engine bay from the front. Try making some air vents so that your car doesn't heat up.

Since the pics were taken in the evening (and the car and the meshes are black).............you cant see the huge grille/mesh at the bottom of the number plate........There is adequate air going into the engine bay. Also there are slits with meshed vents at the sides for letting air flow through the design and out the rear. These were made with some thoughts to the aero-dynamics...........Thanks for the comments!!

Good job, Beeman! I really like the look. Especially the way the chin spoiler looks on the car :-)

Good job Beeman! I'm not much into visual mods but quite like the work you've done! But maybe you should lose the grille in the rear bumper, it's a bit OTT.
Also the bump running from the side skirts integrating neatly into the rear bumper looks really well done.

Hi beeman..
Nice kit..
Can you tell me how did you manage to do it yourself..
How about creating a thread and letting us know your experiences..
Even I want to do something like this..

For the spoiler..I liked what faithless has suggested..But make sure it isnt too big..

@Beeman....
Bad bits:
The front chin spoiler 'sticks' out too much.
The rear bumper is too big, infact even bigger than the boot itself.
The rim size is a wee-bit small, opt for bigger ones.
Good Bits:
Side skirts are nicely done.
Front mesh grille is good.

Overall very nicely done, considering its your first effort. There's not much one can do to improve the looks of the current elantra.

Very good self-effort Beeman. And that the car is very well maintained. It'll be interesting to see the 1st fully modded (eye-candy and engine) Elantra here.
