If you read our last Project Elantra update we introduced you to our Elantra wagon. We’ve done a lot of mechanical and electrical repairs to it so she runs pretty much okay right now. However the car looked every inch of its 295-thousand km mileage. What this worn hag needed was a makeover.
Before the paint job, we wrenched and gussied it up for an autocross race in Bulacan. Rota Slipstreams were fitted to it for the event. A bum inner CV joint and an overheating engine left us stranded on the way back. The front skirt made it difficult for the AAP towing people to load it onto their flatbed. It’s hard to see, but we also fitted inlets for brake cooling piping on the stock fog lamp location, a feature we retained even after the paint job.
