So I took the inserts off my wheels and decided to take a few pictures of me and my ride.







Don't have much done to it.

Just a Cold Air Intake
20% Tint all around
Custom Headrest

Im getting my Cryo System, and my exhaust on this weekend. Its just going to be a muffler to hold me over for tax return.

Future Mods

Carbon Fiber Hood
Front Spoiler
Tubro Kit
Full Turbokit exhaust system
50 Shot of NoS

Thats all I can think of of the top of my head will update this everytime I get something new.

same goal here!
lol
I want to be able to put my car on the dyno at school in 6 months or so, and run 250 at the wheels, at least.

And your koup is gorgeous, love the silver koups with the SX wheels, no plastic inserts.
If you get new wheels I'll meet up with you and take em off your hands! lol
I got an LX so I'm rolling steelies and wheel covers now=/

The Cry02 system is a C02 system that hooks up like Nos. It Sprays a bulb in your cold air intake that way the air passing over the bulb is chilled. It also has hook ups to freeze your intercooler, and your fuel line.

Its pretty much just a system that supercools your engine and gives you more horsepower.

Starting out im just getting the CAI system and the Purge system. Then when I get the turbo im going to chill my intercooler and my fuel line.

It should give me a pretty good boost of HP when I am spraying the C02.

Here is a picture of the Headrest, the dealership had them done when I bought them. Both the Driver and passenger fronts are done.

They did that, spoiler, and Pin Stripping from the factory.

Yo, Mr. Fett, sir!

I'm curious about your pinstripe. I like the way it changes levels to follow the car lines. But the pics don't have enough detail for me to tell if it is a single line or a pair of lines. How about some close-up pics, at least of the area of the transition from higher to lower level and maybe the front point. And what is the width of the line(s)?

Thanks.

Its actually 2 lines, with a break then a Kia Symbol then the rest of the boddy. Those you can see the pin stripping a little better. I will take some better pictures of it tomorrow.

The only thing is driver side door I needs to get touched up its peeling a little.

Thanks. I do remember those pics from an earlier post of yours. They don't really show the stripes much better.

I'm curious if they are custom designed just for the Koup or are universal stripes creatively applied. I would probably have to work with universal stripes if I decide to apply them, hence my interest in closer looks at the details, in particular how the transition from one level to the other is handled, and how they are brought to a point in front.

Don't sweat it. No rush. I've been thinking about it since I saw your original post some time ago, and I'm likely going to think about it a while longer. Anytime you get around to it will be fine by me and much appreciated. I may be retired, but I certainly understand other people have a life. :)

Did some painting to day to throw some accents on my car I also blacked out the tail lights.

The tail lights turned out really good I used the Night shades spray and went easy with it doing nice layers.







Then I also painted my Twitters, Hand Rest, and Floor panel Metallic red. I think it turned out good. I wanted to do the other part but have not figured out how to take it off without breaking it yet.







Then last painted the engine cover.



And here is the bend in my pins strip

Thanks for the pinstripe detail. They did it differently than I expected. I had imagined that the upper bend would be cut with an angle change, not simply a bend.

I like the red in the interior too. You have to figure out how to get the other part off because it would look so good red also.

A suggestion: lose the dealer sticker on the trunk - it's gotta go! Maybe a hair dryer, followed by some alcohol/GooGone to clean up.
