    Well, my Element needed new headlights, so I bought a new set for 150 bucks... and promptly opened and gutted them so that I could put Acura LED projectors inside. Why? I'll admit, mainly for aesthetics, but also for a slight visibility upgrade. Kind of "getting with the times." I wanted to do...

    Over the July 4th weekend, the catalytic converter of my 2005 Element EX was stolen while parked outside in my apartment complex. When I started it up on the Tuesday morning to a very loud roar, I knew exactly what had happened. It is a crime that takes only seconds to commit but has taken...

    After having my catalytic converter stolen TWICE i decided to do a little preventative maintenance. Aircraft aluminum guard, security bolts and red loc-tite. If you casually look under the passenger side of my car you get the finger wag. If you crawl under the driver’s side you just get the...

    I can’t remember where, but I saw that someone had made a wooden table that sat on the rear passenger-side. It must have been cantilevered or supported in the wheel well somehow as there were no legs. Anybody out there have an idea what I’m talking about? If possible I’d like more information on...

    Just finished a couch/bed combo based on Amy Qian's cool design. I modified it so that I had 21" clear between the legs so a surfboard could fit underneath. This increased the build time by a day or two, but Amy's plans and drawings were an awesome start to the project saving many hours / days...

    These were a couple of roadside teak tables that needed some love, and a new life. So, a little cleaning, a little sanding, a little cutting, and voila! a roof rack!

    Hey there ! I was wondering if anyone has ever created a DIY pop up tent on there roof (similar to Ursa Minor)? I don’t have 7000 dollars for a pop up. Instead I would like to build a cheaper alternative! accessible through the sunroof connects to existing rack mounts canvas with bug nets...

    Hey all- I just bought a 2008 EX yesterday and only now discovered I now have a target for catalytic converter theft. I have good insurance, but I’m seeing some people have had their cat ripped out multiple times. The one I bought had its car converter ripped out on the lot, and the dealer...

    Here's my take on some custom window coverings. I repurposed some found 1/4" foam core, doubled it for strength and added insulation, and spray adhered some engineer prints of one of my photos. Engineer prints are a very budget-friendly way to create large black and white photos, available from...

    After getting a lot of good feedback and a fair amount of questions I've decided to give more insight and instructions on my most recent build. Like most of us I researched as many build options I could find until I came up with a design that best fit my needs. A few key points pushed me in...

    I recently installed a new Boss Audio Double Din head unit on my 05 Element EX, and almost everything is working exceptionally. My add-on backup camera, all 4 door speakers, bluetooth calls, the works. The only thing that doesnt seem to be working (and it MIGHT be and i am just not noticing) is...
  14. Problems & Issues
    Hi all, new owner of a 2003 Element EX AWD. I got it inspected prior to buying to know what repairs to expect. I'm looking into buying parts and the only thing I can't find on Rockauto and such is an inner CV boot for the rear driver side. It's busted and leaking grease and I should replace...

    The long story (skip to TLDR at the bottom for a summary): I never felt the necessity for a platform because, to me, the seats were comfortable for sleeping. The more we camped, the more tiring it became rearranging everything to sleep or drive. I loved the PVC design by @pookSter and almost...

    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. The videos are showing elements turned into lean mean camping machine and I thought I'd share for anyone else to find...

    Hi Folks, So I have in my hot little hands a genuine Ecamper shell that was removed from another Element. My plan is to install it on a black 2007 4WD EX with ~150k miles that's in pretty fine shape (except for a bit of hail damage on the roof...but with Ecamper in place, problem solved!) I...

    Hello, I am kicking around the idea of doing a couple one off interior buildouts (platform bed, pullout drawers, sink, etc..) A big part of my day job is CADCAM and I have access to a CNC router in my off time. If I do a buildout I will plan everything in CAD cut most of the components on...

    Hey Gang! My '04 finally blew a steel brake line a few weeks ago. I put a patch line in to get her home, but it's finally time to get the proper fix in with real parts. I ordered all 5 OEM replacement steel lines and am ready to put them in. The big questions I have are: the DSM doesn't have...

    Has anyone built a 5th Element-style door-to-door table? If so, I'd love to get your plans and lessons learned.
