These pictures show some of the stuff I did this weekend to my KOUP. A major thank you goes to OrangeCrush for the help and expertise. Just a few upgrades were done:
> Shark-fin antenna installed
> "K" emblems installed (Rear and Steering wheel)
> De-badged / Re-badged
These recent upgrades go along with the 20% window tint w/ windshield strip
Again, huge shout out to OrangeCrush who helped with all this greatly.
Let me know what y'all think!!:cool:

The regular shark-fin is too small for the koups antenna base, so you'll have to do as I did and get the VG Mark II (the larger one), This is because they haven't made one yet to fit the koup exactly. But let me tell you this one fits perfectly and the paint match is identical, I love it. Here iss the site I got mine from:
VG Shark Fin Antenna - Installation

Oh ya, if anyone uses this company for thiers, just email them asking for the "VG Mark II Antenna". They will get back to you really quickly and ask yoru paint code. They are really great and the antenna is fully integrated into the base on your roof so you lose absolutely no signal. Great Company and product.

I strongly recommend putting some sort of clear coat on your emblems. I got the same ones like you, but in red. Mine look like crap after one winter.

I read the thread about the "K" emblems turning to crap after being exposed to the weather and someone said that some clear coats turn hazy after a short while. Any suggestions as to what clear coat would be best?

We are actually in Pittsburgh not Philly and I can tell you the races around here are pretty good in the summer time and for the legal end we gotta head a lil north to the one track which is always packed... I posted a thread about a multi-car meet in Morgantown, PA on April 25th if you wanna try to make it it out...
