  2. Raptor Lining Project

    Raptor Lining Project

    Hey guys, I’ve had my 08 E for 7 years now and recently had to do some body work since it had been hit while it was parked a couple of times. I’ve been using the same collision repair shop for all my cars over the years so they let me use the shop for a little project. Originally, it was...
  3. Visual Direction of my Element

    So I've been doing some inexpensive things to make my E stand out visually. I don't want it on the level of pink window tint and 4 spoilers of standing out but just small additions.

  6. Paint job difference

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I have caught the bug and have to buy an Element. All the models I have seen on the road have the black or Navy "trim" around the wheel well area exterior. I am looking at a 2008 EX on Auto Trader which does not have this trim. Is this normal - or might it indicate a wrecked and repainted...
  7. What Next? Need Ideas

    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...

    Trailers, Campers and Teardrops… oh my!
    So we went camping last week and took our pop-up trailer with us as we usually do. The day before we left, I hooked the trailer's deep-cycle battery up to the trickle charger to make sure we had enough juice in the trailer for 5 days away and at some point overnight, the battery boiled over...

  13. Hood Repaint

    Has anyone had to have their hood repainted? I bought my E used and it has a few botched touchups on the hood along with a spot where the clear is cracked? I was just wondering your experience as to how much it cost and how well a complete hood repaint will blend with the factory paint?
  14. 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.

  17. NEW CAR: Factory Paint vs Repaint

    I recently bought a 2008 Silver Element EX. When I went to pick it up and was inspecting it (hadn't paid yet), I noticed a half dozen, mostly fine line, scratches scattered over the driver's side passenger door and fender. The sales manager offered to touch-up the scratches and take maybe...
