The Veloster Turbo looks pretty sharp from the factory but there is always room for improvement by installing ground effects. As the ex-owner of a ricer I must say that there are some things to watch out for. First, no matter what kit you are going to have issues with tow truck drivers being willing to tow your car and you're most likely going to need a flatbed truck. Second, I would always suggest going with a urethane kit as there is less prep work and its flexible. The only real issue with urethane is that its a little more difficult to get the paint to properly adhere to, so make sure you go to a body shop that does great prep work and always hand wash your vehicle yourself to avoid paint damage.


When I mounted mine I used some 3m double sided trim tape, wax remover and surface prep solutions, screws, drill, and the hand of a friend.

I imagine I will do some sort of custom grill and a front lip as well. The grill is so large I am struggling to figure out exactly what to do with it. If it was a giant mesh grill it may look goofy. I'll probably do one or two prototypes if I can find some VT grills for reasonably cheap.

I will not EVER do a body kit on a car again.. The only real 'asthetic' modification I will probably ever do on the outside of the VT besides plasti-dip badges, tint and nightshades would be adding a front DIY lip and possibly Di-noc film to some of the trim (like the B pillar area) or even the gray parts of the stock 'kit'

With rims, suspension and those mods the car will be super sexy without having to worry about fitting a FG kit, painting it and worrying about cracking/pitting, etc.

regarding the OPs post, I highly doubt there will be any Urethane kits available for the Vturbo. I don't think the market will be big enough for someone to spend the money to do urethane.. and I hate the relatively low quality FG kits available for most cars. Granted there are a few companies, albeit very pricey, that make quality/coated FG kits but you pay to play.

I'll be doing a front splitter
Sort of like the Sequence chin spoiler but something more durable like a slab of aluminum powdercoated
For the most part I think Hyundai did a great job with the body and I don't need to modify it

Something like this, in gloss black
The car will be lowered so this will help protect the front plastic clip along the bottom edge
The world I live in has some nasty little inclines and even when I'm really careful I can scrape the front
The slab of aluminum takes all the abuse, and never shows any sign of it

No body kits are going on mine. Might change the grill to get rid of the brick but that's it.
Stinks that the "BRICK" is a permanent part of the grill!!!!
