  1. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Has anyone here had their wheels painted or powder coated to match the body color of your Soul? I've seen white and black, but I'm trying to see how Titanium Gray wheels would look on my Titanium Gray Soul? Most wheel simulator websites don't let you change the wheel colors to match the paint...

    I've done some searching and see several posts asking about how to remove the dashboard for painting, but don't see any pictures of final products. I've found some info on removing the dashboard and looks fairly simple, just lots of steps. Anybody out there have a painted dash on their soul?

    For the rear bumper and front bumper and those ugly grey plastics. Has anyone painted them? Either body matched or a darker black? Show some pics!
  4. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Got ambitious today and decided to add some detail to my wheel wells. I bought a couple of cans of rubber undercoating spray ($7 each at Lowes) and covered my red factory sprayed wheel wells. The wheel wells are now blacked out, which I think looks a lot better and it should help insulate from...

  7. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Was wondering if anyone has experience having rims painted. I have a 2014 Soul ! with the 18inch wheels and I am wanting to have the gloss black portion of the wheel painted Alien II. Wondering if it's worth the aggravation and how hard upkeep would be.

    I wanted something different for the upper grille on the 2014..... no one is making a custom upper grille yet other than some cover up chrome mesh grille..... too fake looking for me, so.... I decided to remove the upper grille, prep it and paint it a "Candy Blue" over the chrome finish with a...

    So much to my wife's protest, I decided to paint my rims yesterday. I purchased Rim paint and clear coat from autozone. I also decided it was a good time for the calipers too! Here is what they turned out looking like.
  10. For sale / Trade / Wanted
    Hi. I am from North Vancouver. I have a 2010 kia soul 4 u " burner " model I would honestly love to trade my custom painted 18" rims and tires for a pair of 16s. They don't have to be painted. Two tires have about 20-30% left on the 18s and the other two are about 50%. Stock factory optima...

    Not sure if this is the right place to put this.. But... I finally got my break calipers painted tonight... Let them dry overnight, and then put everything back together tomorrow. :) Will post more pictures when all is done.

    I have done a search but am not coming up with anything. I keep seeing people making reference to people having painted the factory wheel covers. Are there pictures of them on the forum somewhere? Perhaps I am just entering the wrong search terms.

    I saw the the Soul burner grille in other threads and I HAD TO GET ONE. So I ordered a red one and installed it yesterday. I also made a spontaneous decision to paint the eyeliners red. For those of you who were wondering, I have the 2011 sport model. The eyeliners on the sport model are...

    Hey guys, if you read my post below, "Painted my rims!!", this is what the car looks like with the rims completed on it. I also got a "custom made" spoiler, because aftermarket parts haven't been made for the 2012 models yet. Check it out and tell me what you think!!

    Hey guys! Got a 2012 Soul + a couple of weeks ago and decided to start doing some work on it, spent the weekend painting my rims flat black with a minor semi gloss. I think it looks really sick, maybe just cause i did it haha. They're not perfect, there are some very small chip here and there...

    Okay, so I painted my calipers this past weekend. Red. Nice. Sweet. Observations: Getting the high quality (I'm being sarcastic) organizer tray out was a real treat. Why didn't they make a hook or something to hold up the lid back there? Saw my spare, jack, etc for the first time. More high...

    One of the questions I've always wondered is, why KIA decided not to make the body side molding on the doors body colored on the higher trim levels such as the Exclaim or the Sport. On the darker colored Souls (Java, Shadow and Titanium) it's ok, as it blends in. However on the lighter colored...
