never been a fan of either neon or vinyl, but to each his own.. if we all had the same taste we would be driving the exact same cars.... enjoy your car and do what you think looks best!!

Not something I would do but looks pretty sweet on your ride. I think you're the first one to post pics of this on a Forte so far.

What did you use and how did you wire up the LED's in the footwells inside the car? This is something I've been planning on doing but haven't got to it yet.

I like the neons. Vinyl.. eh.

My thoughts on vinyl tends to be less is more a subtle little line or something I prefer to a big vinyl. Good luck with it though

seriously deep floor mats........and mega-seriously long ass lic. plate.
guessing middle east somewhere.
so far we forte/koups are getting around the world,
i think we have russia, usa, canada, egypt, iran, korea, peru(?), south africa,
on this board......i am sure that i have left out a country or two.......

i just think it is cool as heck to have a car that i can drive around that looks fkng hot and i dont see around on the road everytime i turn around.........

and i love the fact that the car that we are all loving on- is actually turning out to be a world wide car...........

Where did you drill to mount the side neons? I just bought a set of blue LED undercar neons, but I want to make sure I'm not going to hit a line to anything when I mount them.

They're should be a little lip right underneath. Mount it right there. How did you install the front and the back lights? Those are the hard ones... Koup or sedan??

It's the sedan. The Koup wasn't out yet when I bought my Forte. The front and back ones weren't a problem. I'm using the Plasmaglow flexible LED undercar kit, so they're super thin and light, basically just a strip with the LEDs on them. There are plastic screws that hold part of the bumper and a similar setup on the front, I was able to just sandwich the mounts between those so I didn't need to drill anything and it holds everything perfectly. But, when I went to mount the side neons the only lip goes at a 90 degree angle down, which I can't use because the way the clips hold that particular kit, they would be sideways and wouldn't be shining on the ground.
