  1. Side Steps for Rear Doors Only ?

    'E'ccessories
    Hi -- Recently I've had some older and some shorter friends and passengers have a hard time climbing into the back seat. I don't really want running boards because I don't need them for the front seats, and I think they stick out too far, so I don't want to have to step over them or risk banging...
  2. Oh She's Loud

    Under The Hood / Performance
    After my CAT got stolen off my rig, I decided to change it up a little bit and give my E a little more "rawness" I ordered a magnaflow exhaust system and decided to straight pipe it. She sounds like a BEAST now!:evil:
  3. Spoiler Help?

  4. Black Again protectant

    Wax on, Wax Off
    I'm a 303 guy, I put that s#*t on just about everything inside and outside of my E! But after this winter she's looking pretty chalky and the 303 just wasn't bringing things back to life. I've also used Mothers Back to Black a lot on exterior panels with some success. I think i will always use...
  5. Side Step Compatibility

    Exterior
    Hey All, Would anyone happen to know if OEM side steps from an 04 will fit on an 08? I've looked through some threads that stated side steps from models after the year you have will fit.
  6. What Next? Need Ideas

    Exterior
    I definitely caught the DIY bug earlier this spring and did a number of modifications... At the beginning of the summer I picked up two more toys and I'm slightly ashamed to say it, but the Element went from about 2,500 miles a month to 50. As convertible weather begins to come to a close...
  7. Front bumper cover and reinforcement bar

    Exterior
    So earlier this morning, I got into an accident with my friend's Honda Element. 2008, EX awd. Turns out that I just broke the bumper cover and reinforcement bar (or so it seems). I will upload pictures later today, but anyone have an idea of what I'd need to fix it (tools, any small parts) and...
  8. Removing Passenger Doors?

    Miscellaneous / General Element Discussions
    Hello all, Question for the group... is it possible, or practical to remove the passenger doors (both front & back) and drive the vehicle? The reason: I will be filming a series of cycling videos and need to have the side of the vehicle open for the camera man to shoot. If it is not...
  9. 2005 rusted doors

    Problems & Issues
    I really like my '05 Element, bought it used in 09 for $13,000 w/78k miles; a year later 99k miles, I noticed the "backseat" doors on both sides are bubbling/rusting at the bottom.:evil: Is this a common problem? I would hate to pay for auto-body work that doesn't prevent a reoccurrence of...
  10. Plastic body panel torn off and pushed back in place--OK as is I think.

    Exterior
    Today I had my first ever car accident which was thankfully minor. A jeep just touched my Element, not leaving a scratch on it, but it pulled the passenger's side plastic front panel off like the tab on a soda can. This was literally plastic on plastic for both vehicles. I simply pushed it...
  11. Washed, Waxed, and Treated Plastic. What you think?

    Wax on, Wax Off
    I washed, waxed with turtle wax, and wiped down the plastics with Armoral Cleaner and a rag. Just thought it looked clean, wanted to show.
  12. Make E really look like "toaster"

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I've decided to embrace the E's "toaster-ness" and decorate my E up to resemble a real toaster for an upcoming event. 8) I was thinking about making something that looks like 2 pieces of toast and attaching them to the top of my E. Just not sure of what to use for the toast slices and how to...
  13. Sticker removal.

    Wax on, Wax Off
    I just bought my Element, and it's an awesome vehicle. The only thing bothering me about the exterior is the dumb car dealer logo sticker on the back. I want to remove it, but I know a faded out or deteriorated paint spot would look even worse. So, I'm wondering what is best to use to get the...
