    My 2014 VT Build "Ellie"

    This is Ellie. She's a 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo in Ironman Silver. I bought her 21 days ago, and have already begun my modding journey. My plan is to make her a fun little hatchback that is nice to drive around daily, but is equally competent at autocross events/track days every now and again. Aesthetics upgrades will be done if they're cheap and DIY, and I will be adding performance mods in an effort to make her more fun on the road, as well as more competitive at the track. Nothing too crazy though, as I want to keep this car somewhat reliable for DD use.

    Her she is bone stock



    Added an oil catch can as suggested. And it's already catching oil.



    Here she is with her shoes off. Getting a little paint added.

    Finished product



    HID install, which required the removal of the bumper.

    Everything back together



    No pictures of my catback install, but here is two clips. One inside the cabin, other outside.



    Currently I have a pierce 2 point brace on the way, as well as some high heat brake fluid. Both of those should arrive before my first autocross event on May 6th.

    I will be honest.....I was inspired by Nexus7861's build. Except my car works for the good guys.

    I got some Morimoto's off of the retrofit source. Had to solder the HID blades into the housing assembly's wiring harness.

    Did some more plasti dipping today. I think they came out well.

    Why did you get such complicated HID's? Most kits are plug and play H11b kits, only thing you have to do is mount the ballast somewhere on the frame
