As with anything in life the more you invest the better the return. A key element in a successful styling project is to plan. Planning ahead of time and going with a theme makes a world of difference between a car that just had parts slapped on it compared to a real show car.
Before ordering any parts to enhance your car make sure to verify whether the car is still worth accessorizing. That is especially true if your vehicle is already a couple of years old, or if you brought it second-hand. You want to be sure that it will be worth your time and money to enhance your car. Once you know your car is good to go the model and make of your car is not that important, because with every single model you can pick up peculiar and essential car parts that would refresh the ride’s exterior appearance and create a completely different style. If style is most important to you, look for custom car accessories that will improve not only the appearance, but also the performance level and life of your car’s motor.
The six most essential car parts that you can use to style your car are:
- Sparkling chrome accessories
- Custom billet and mesh grilles
- Forged custom wheels
- Euro LED headlights and tail lights
- OEM and custom rear spoilers
- Air filters and Intakes
- Dash trim kits
Never overlook the interior of the car because you will be spending a lot of time looking at the dashboard. You do not need to stick with the standard plastic, and dials that come with the car. All interior surfaces can be recovered. Leather has become a popular option, and if you are brave even fur.
Remember to keep with the overall theme of the car – the interior should match the exterior theme. A wide variety of gauge styles are available from chrome to complete digital dashboards. Adding dials and gauges adds more functions allowing you to monitor engine oil pressure, temperature, boost, economy, and voltages. Complement the dashboard dials and plastic makeover with a new sporty steering wheel, gear knob and pedals.
Seats come in all shapes and sizes. Keep in mind that light colors can be very difficult to keep clean although they look fantastic. It is beneficial to choose similar colors and materials to the other surfaces in your car. Retro looks tend to last much longer than modern quirky looks but will not be as revolutionary.
Remember that the more you plan your cars styling the better the end result will be. The ultimate aim is to create a truly unique car.
