The team over at FuelCulture.com got together with Joey Redmond and Infinite Auto Design to produce this top notch Hyundai Veloster build which debuted in the Hyundai booth at SEMA last November. Over the last few years, the Hyundai brand has been on the turnaround, and this build further proves that the brand is gaining ‘cool factor’.
Outside of the car, the exterior is headlined by the first imported lip kit from Sequence-X. Sequence is a popular aftermarket company in South Korea, but the kit had yet to see American shores until this team imported it last summer.
Along with importing this lip kit, brand new Korean OE parts were ordered which really set it apart. The stock headlights were replaced with Korean OE projector headlights which eliminate the ugly amber turn signals as well as integrate LED halos. LED taillights and LED turn signal mirrors also upgraded the overall look of the vehicle before the entire exterior was painted in a custom BASF Blueberry paint scheme. Finishing off the exterior are prototype versions of Seibon Carbon’s OEM style hood and trunk, which are now available for sale to the public.
Stopping power is provided by a custom SSBC big brake kit slowing the Continental Extreme Contact Tires which wrap the Konig Deception Wheels, while JDM lugnuts keep the wheels mounted to the car.
Inside the car, the interior received one of the biggest overhauls in the car. The factory a-pillars and headliner were an off white color when the car was new, but the team decided that black suede would look better and replaced it all. Cipher Auto seats replace the OE units, but not before they wrapped and reupholstered in Peanut Butter leather with a Cadillac CTS-V inspired stitch pattern.
FuelCulture teamed up with Snap-On tools and placed a fully-stocked toolbox in the back seat behind the driver, easily accessible from the third door on the passenger side. Inside the trunk you can see some more essential items for an upcoming mechanic including Mechanix-Wear gloves, a Snap-On impact gun and drill (with a charging station integrated into the trunk), and plenty of Royal Purple fluids. Rounding out the trunk is a custom-built Kicker Audio subwoofer box which provides great sound while compromising only a minimal amount of space.
Under the hood, the engine was given an extensive wire tuck by the ChaseBays team, a feat which is quite a task with the Veloster. The factory Hyundai engine bay comes equipped with two fuses boxes, an ECU, and a good 4 miles of wiring was all re-routed and stuffed under the interior dashboard. Several ChaseBays parts helped clean up the look including a Brake Booster Eliminator, ABS eliminator, and custom engine grounding kit.
