Jazz Up The Ride In Easy Steps

by Kandace McCampbell

Everyone knows that customizing a car can cost a ton. There are certain standard colours and models that are produced by the manufacturer and anything other than the usual blacks, greys and gold tones can be extremely expensive. Then there are the modifications to the engine and to the body that will change the performance and the physical shape of the vehicle; these cost even more. However, there are some small things you can do to make your car look better which won’t cost you the earth. Granted, it will not look like a Furious car, but it will look better than what your parents drove.

Blacken Out the Eyes

For some weird reason, windscreen replacement immediately makes any vehicle look cooler. Perhaps it is the demand it makes of those outside the vehicle for privacy – when you see tinted glass on a car, you know that those inside don’t want to be seen. Road rules and regulations forbid any vehicle from having completely blacked out windows unless they belong to law enforcement, but there are plenty of shades that go from barely-there light to super max out dark which you can choose for your vehicle. Know what’s really cool? Leave the front of the vehicle clear so that oncoming vehicles can see you at the wheel but will not be able to see your hot girl next to you.

Personal Badge

Once you’ve done the windscreen repairs focus your energies on the metal body. One quick way of jazzing it up is to show your loyalty to a fandom, institution or college. Most places sell metal plate badges that can be bolted or welded to a vehicle. Lots of vehicles now sport movie fandom insignia, which is a great way to connect to random strangers on the road. The best part is that you can order your colours online for an affordable amount of money and it will still look just as good as a custom job. If you went to a famous school or you were part of a famous sports team, show the love on your ride. The metal will last longer than a cheap sticker or paint job and will be less expensive than the high-quality paint work required for a proper custom job.

Hell on Wheels

This isn’t exactly cheap but compared to the other customized accessories, it is one that is worth investing in. Get a set of customized and high quality wheels that will match the body of your vehicle, but still speaks to your personal style. Nothing screams ‘rebel’ like someone who breaks the usual rules and springs for some wheels that will probably cost you close to what you paid for the car. However, if you choose wisely, these wheels will last you a long time, enough to even recoup on your initial investment.
