Introduction / History
|European and Korean
shipped Santa Fes' have a Bonnet (Hood) Scoop imbedded within their
hoods for the intercooler of the diesel versions. The USA shipped models do
not. But through a few online parts companies such as TFR Racing, on can
attached a plastic Hood Scoop to their hoods.
This modification shows how to add led lights to the inside of the Hood Scoop to give it that unique aftermarket glow effect.
Difficulty level / scale: On a scale of 1 - 10
Tools and materials needed:
|4 (Domed typed) bulb LED light kit with remote control|
|Hood Scoop from TFR Racing|
|1 pk of velcro or 3m Double sided tape|
Step 1a: Preparing Hood Scoop (USA models).
Step 1b: Preparing hood scoop (European/Asian models).
Step 2: Place pillow onto center console.
Now place the pillow on top of the center console and firmly press down on it so the sticky part of the Velcro adheres to the console.
|In doing this mod, I
originally wanted to find something that would extend the assembly up by 3
inches and look professional almost OEM like. I started to look at the
striker (item #3) and see if I could get something to raise it up. I then
thought of using extension rods like the ones you use in an umbrella with
little metal pegs that pop out to lock but I could not find a way to cut it
right to size. Unfortunately there was nothing that would not look too out
of place. So I decided on the pillow method for the time being. I am
providing the parts list for the center console ( See picture.) for those
that might have another idea on how to do this. If you do, then feel free to
contact me and I would display it and acknowledge you as the modifier.
