Danzvibe1-2005 Vibe

Post by Danzvibe1 »

Hello everyone!
This is actually my wife's car. Had it since 2017. Replaced our totaled 2006 Santa Fe GLS.

As it is now:
Recent 2003 bumper swap, painted black.
03 Corolla front bumper lips (am I the first person to try this? - couldn't find any info on it)
2020 Corolla 18" wheels.
Painted headlight housings black.
Android Head unit with backup camera ( I took lots of pics if anyone is interested in a write up for the camera).
Aftermarket roof racks (came with the car).
Painted all cladding with black bumper/trim paint.
Painted rear bumper insert silver.
Plasti-Dipped "Vibe" emblems in red.
Absolutely kickin' Monsoon sound system (from the factory with built-in subwoofer)
Factory fog lights.
All the original floor mats and rear cargo mat.
Factory sunroof.
Installed window visors.
Drilled/slotted front rotors with red calipers and ceramic pads.
Replaced miscellaneous missing interior trim pieces.
Removed intake resonator.
Pretty solid car. Daily driver (my 98 Prelude is down at the moment)

Here go the pics... Hope I can do this right....

The Corolla Lip will also fit even better on the 2005-up bumper. The curves fit very well.

Looks great ! For some reason those wheels make it look like a Subaru to me.

Yeah .... do a separate write up on the backup camera. I'll be getting a system for my 2003 Vibe GT project car sometime over the winter and will use ideas from several installations for when I install it. Nice work so far and thanks for sharing ;)

Update:
Added rear spoiler from 2012 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback...
Had to cut about 1/4" or so from the sides, then filled in with Bondo and painted...
