2004 ION-3 Sedan
Default New Mod Ideas

I recently lowered my 2004 Ion-3 sedan on the Eibach pro-kit springs. I got about an inch and a half drop in the front and like three in the back! I found out a previous owner had installed KYB Excel-G struts too so that was one less thing to worry about.

Right now I'm looking at some new mod ideas. If you know of any way to make them happen, please share.
1. Front splitter (not to be confused with body kit)
2. Sport driver seat
3. Blacked out taillights

Also, any other ideas would be awesome! I'm just looking for a way to have fun without breaking the bank.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Consider COrbeau or SParco seats from the aftermarket.

Number 3 always trips me up, as, why would anyone want their vehicle to appear like it's electrical system is failing?

Default Re: New Mod Ideas

1. iv never seen a splitter for the ion yet, so you may be having to make one yourself. then again, I never sat and tried looking for one.

2. you can opt for the recaro seats that are found in ion RL, that way your not guessing if aftermarket seats with fit or not.

3. there are aftermarket taillights for the ions which will have the black housings.
I have these on mine: http://www.matrixracing.com/images/P...BLK%20copy.jpg
make sure you get a set specifically for the sedan, bec the coups use a different style.
Iv always hated the darkened lenses bec you cant see the light during the day, even if using high powered bulbs. not to mention tinted tail lights are illegal in some states.

Thanks man, I appreciate it! Also, I see you've removed your badges. I'm thinking of removing mine to paint them black, any idea about how I could go about this?

Default Re: New Mod Ideas

iv removed mine by using fishing string and flossing out the adhesive.
if your rebadging, you will more than likely need new adhesive, which 3M makes good double sided adhesive tape.
I rebadged using transformer autobot logos on the front and on the sides in front of the front doors.

as for painting the badges, I'm not too sure what paint to use.
a few others here have repainted their badges, so they may chime in
