This is my 2000 Elantra GLS
Bought Feb 2011 with 147,212 miles now at 164,902

First picture from when I got it.




Wheels before paint.


After paint.


This is how it looks now.


Clear was peeling, so I painted the mirrors with leftover paint.




Interior. Picture is old, I now have a short shifter, 1994 J1 knob and 4th gen Camaro shift boot.






Engine bay before:




Elantra with puppy and new wheels.


After buffing

That is a very nice and clean looking ride! Especially the engine bay! I recall a girl having this model and it was tore up. She had it new and just let it get bad. I was like wow. Yet your car could sell for a very decent price if you decided to sell her. Good work!

Maybe it's documented elsewhere here, but I was curious (thought someone who knew would post) so I investigated. It was just bugging me, although in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't really matter.

J1 = First Generation, 1990-95
RD/J2 = Second Generation, 1996-97
RD2/J3 = 2nd Gen, Facelift, 1998-2000

Someone put the following text into the wikipedia page, but I cannot find where Hyundai "clearly states" it.

QUOTE
Hyundai clearly states that the 1996-98 elantra is an RD NOT a J2. The same goes for the facelifted 1999-2000 version. It's has the chassis code of RD2 NOT J3. Information can be seen on Hyundai's online technical site, www.HMAservice.com


On the hmaservice website though, they list it as the RD. I would think that, given the major difference between the J1 and RD, that RD/RD2 would be the more appropriate to use.

The Tiburon was RC or GK.

I'm going to get some new wheels, cold air intake, headers, 19mm tib sway bar.
I would like to drop it about an inch. Relocate the battery to the trunk. I might repaint it after I'm done with some other projects at the shop. I'm thinking a slightly deeper green and without the pearl in it.

I relocated the coolant overflow tank to where the washer fluid tank used to be.
