So now that I started doing some things on my VT, I figured I might as well start a thread. I will mostly be doing exterior mods and such- not too many performance mods.

So here is Mara Jade on day 1 after purchasing her...

I am planning on blacking her out and cant wait til she gets there!

How long was it before you started modding?

I debadged the 1st day, then like a week later found plastic dip :D Then like a month later I went on the Gen Keys Run where the Mod bug bit me...All down hill after that :eek:

Yea the 20yr / 200k mile powertrain warranty. Then I purchased the additional which gives me complete coverage on just about everything for 100k. Who was your salesman, if you can remember?

Sweet! My Salesman doesn't work there anymore. I recommended someone over there a few months ago & found out that he went to another dealer. If you ever go to the service desk introduce yourself to a guy named Will. He'll take super care of you. He used to have a Veloster & be on the Forum. He's thinking about getting another one soon.

Okay, okay... lol

I removed the Rick Case decal and dipped my front and rear emblems. I think that I want to keep the turbo red, but I may dip in the future. This was my first time dipping anything and I'm amazed at how easy it was!


Got the front and rear taped off...





Hit them with a first coat...





4 coats later...





Peeling it was my wife's favorite part lol





Bada Bing!





I messed up the front emblem, so I will have to redo it in the future but it will stay for now



And so I'm one step closer to blacking out Mara Jade!

Awesome, will you being doing something more permanent in the future? Or just plan on dipping everything to achieve your blacked out look?

I plan on getting my headlights and tail lights professionally tinted along with my windows. I am going to try dipping my wheels and see how it looks and maybe move onto different rims later.

As for the emblems, I will probably keep the plasti dip. I like the look of dipped badges more than debadged or custom badges.

I'm going to try dipping my lights to smoke them tomorrow because my wife will be busy and I will be bored. Wonder if anyone had any suggestions, warnings, experiences, etc.

Otherwise, I guess you'll see them tomorrow evening

Oh I've also had my DD lights in for a while but have to take pictures sometime. When you work in a photo studio for 50+ hours a week, taking photos isn't really on the mind.
