Thumbs up Finally part of the family

Buying this car has been an adventure as I had to have black and a manual. There were only 3 in the country when I put my money down, the dealership failed to secure the one closest to me, and both that one and another sold before they realized the mistake. That left only one left, so 34 days later I finally get the car!!!
Now I am having a very hard time finding any aftermarket parts, so it looks like I am going to have to DIY a lot of the things that I want to do.
Looking to go with different rims, no offence but the stock rims are fugly!! Not sure if I am going to change them out completely, plasti dip or hydro dip. I found a set through GWG wheels, they seem to be a fit but I am not sure about needing to use center rings?? Has anyone played with any of that.
I already debadged and tinted the windows and will be mounting my front plate at the tow hook.
I am looking to do red accents around the front grill, the fins on the fog lights, the side mirrors and something on the back tail. Red licence plate frames and maybe some runner graphics.
I read another members how to on the plasti dip logo paitn job and I am willing to try that out! just concerned how I am going to get all my reds to match.

Any feedback, links to sites and resources are appreciated.

Glad to have a new owner on the forum.

Firstly, i'd like to say that tinting the chrome would improve it a lot, along with giving your Elantra more of a premium feel.

Congrats on finally securing your GT and welcome to the forum! Though aftermarket support is still fairly limited atm, I would suggest checking out Shark Racings' site. They've got a good amount of products out already for the GT and people seem to be happy with the quality thus far.

Great source.

Also don't forget all the universal parts one can get. You'd be surprised at what can be done which in the end looks purposely made for said vehicle.
Some guys I know often like to add side splitters and front splitters.

stay away from shark racing. ultra overpriced junk, some of which doesn't even fit. Also keep away from damnfastdd as they have no quality control at all and will send you stuff that looks like a 5 year old welded it together. SXTH is a good option though.
