  1. What are the best Element camper builds / mods you've seen?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hey Fellow Element Enthusiasts. I did my own micro camper project and compiled/curated the best 33 videos on Youtube I borrowed ideas from or had watched while doing my build.

  2. Best way to save space while living in my ‘08 LX??

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hi all, I’m currently living in my car and am faced with a mixture of urban and suburb settings in a decently sized town. This means that (For the most part) I have to be extra stealthy due to local neighborhood watches. Since I own an LX, the sunroof is not an option. My questions for you...

  7. What I've been towing... Custom Trailer Content..

    Trailers, Campers and Teardrops… oh my!
    Thought it was about time to share the custom trailer that I built for scratch about a year ago specifically for traveling with the element. We normally sleep in the the E or in the roof tent that I also made and do a lot of traveling racing bikes so I made a trailer to support all of the...
  8. How to make your own Lip Kit

    Image Gallery This is something I have done myself. I did this mod last weekend to my Mazda MX6. VERY SIMIPLE and really looks good. I bet this would look good on some of the tuner elements out there.
