Hey guys. My name is Danny and I live in Arizona. I've been in the car modification scene for 30 years. I was driving a Chevy Cruze Diesel and spent a lot of time modding it. You can check a pic here but this thread is all about my Kia Stinger GT1 in Micro Blue Pearl.



I've already ordered emblems for the car. Nothing against the KIA logo, but I like the Excellence logo so much more. I will also be ceramic coating the car this weekend.

She's a blank slate, time to head to the drawing board. :D

Change out your badges before you ceramic coat the car or you will have areas where the coating doesn't touch. There is a place in Mesa that does great work, he did my car, great prices an great work. The name of his shop is Coyote Mobile Detailing

We all start somewhere, right? :D

My first mod was the Excellence badge for the front:



Followed closely by Excellence badges on the wheels:



I put an Excellence badge overlay on the steering wheel, didn't take a picture yet. I also bought and received the 14"? Stinger logo for the back, but I don't want holes in my car. Might go with the K logo instead and leave the rest alone. The front badge was bad enough!

I then spent the weekend cleaning then ceramic coating the car. I found a couple scratches, probably left by the dealer prep team, and one flaw I've never seen in a new car before... Dirt in the paint! Should I mention this to my dealer? I feel like it's likely to be more headache to report it than it's worth...

You should have said something about the wheel E caps @Danny5. I have a set that I used for about 2 months I would have sold....

I spent the afternoon puzzling out a catch can install. End results looks pretty good!

Looks good I swapped the badges on my car as well and on the steering wheel, I took every badge of the back and just have the 16 inch stinger logo in the middle
