I’ve been doing small little things to make my 21’ Forte Gt special to me and I found these metal door sill plaques on Amazon for like $30. I also got some clear door edge protectors. I’ve installed them today and I think it came out pretty well. Does anyone have any ideas for small “improvements” or wanna show off what they’ve done? Please feel free to comment below.

Pro tip for the door protectors, heat them up with a hairdryer as you install them so they go on like butter.

whoaa, that’s the mother load, do you have links to where you got these? I’m most interested in the trunk closing thing, bolt caps, knee rest and hood strut.

You might be interested in these as well


I’ve already purchased the door lock covers on eBay, should be here in the next few weeks. I’m hesitant to order off Ali Express cause I don’t want to wait ages!!

I used to suffer through weeks and months of waiting for shipping from AliExpress as well, until I discovered their secret selection of shipping methods. NEVER opt for their free shipping method unless it's AliExpress Standard Shipping. And if you have to pay a few bucks extra, upgrade to AliExpress Standard Shipping.
Not sure if it's the same in North America, but in Australia if you select AliExpress Standard Shipping, the item is shipped over on a weekly or fortnightly shipment to Australia to an AliExpress distribution center. From there, it is sent to me via the local postal service. I'll usually get the item in about 2-4 weeks instead of 4 - 12 weeks.
Because if you bought through eBay it's still sent from China anyway.
Didn’t know that🤔 thank you kindly for the info!
