  1. Installing wheel lights. Looking for holes in firewall and wheel wells

    Tiburon General Discussion
    Hey there. I’ve got an 08 tib. I haven’t dug for it yet, but I’m aware of a hole in the firewall with a rubber grommet on the left/driver side footwell. Does anyone know if there is a matching hole on the passenger side? Or another similar opening? And to get wires and lights to the rear...

  3. Help / Tools Needed - Northern Virginia Area

    Tiburon General Discussion
    Hey All: Recently moved to the area and picked up a second Tib to play with. It was too good of a deal not to pick it up. The downside is that it needs a little bit of work and I don't have the tools / garage space to do it yet. I was wondering if I could find a good soul here with either a...

  5. What Thermostat Temp Rating?

    New Member Introductions
    I have a 2006 Tiburon. Recently I noticed my check engine light was on. I got it read at a buddy's place and apparently I need to replace my thermostat. I've done plenty of research and am confident I can do it myself. I have one question though. According to my research, thermostats are rated...
  6. 2 Seat Conversion Is Done! Check It Out!

    Tiburon General Discussion
    You read it, I finally converted my 05 Tiburon GT to a 2 seater complete with a carpeted custom insert for the back.

  7. Making a replacement sunshade

    New Member Introductions
    I recently purchased a 2003 Tiburon GT, and very quickly began to hate the past owners. The sunshade has been removed, and mixing black leather with a sunroof in Florida makes it an oven. On the Hyundai parts website it is almost 300 for the replacement shades. Has anyone made a semi-descent...
  8. Can not find 06 front bumper for non-ridiculous price

    I've had my tiburon for about 6 months now and I'm super happy with it. the only thing that I find kind of repulsive is the front bumper of the 03 model. I saw the DIY of replacing it with the 06 bumper that looks much better and thought I should give it a go. I did some digging, and the only...

    Greetings! Finished something I've been planning for a while, wanted to share it with all of you. I always thought it was silly to have wires all over for charging phones with the new induction chargers. Why not put one in myself? Parts: I bought a silver Tiburon mission plate from Diode...

  17. DIY Moded dash to flush mount cell phone (my Nexus 5)

    Tiburon General Discussion
    This is more of a "look what I did" then a "do it yourself" but by all means you could do this yourself. Just don't do all of the unnecessary steps I took and just jump to the last section where I got my Nexus 5. I wanted my phone mounted in my car but not on the window. I couldn't find a...

    I4 - Naturally Aspirated
    So I recently bought a used Greddy Evo2 exhaust for my 06 tiburon GS. Everything on is it pretty good, except one of the mufflers is rusted on the inside.
