The Kia Sportage – Chrome Hinge Covers
When you think of chrome it’s not often that the next word out of your mouth is Korean or even Kia but that’s exactly what today’s post is about: Chrome Accessories for the Kia from Korea! Actually, today’s post is only about one chrome accessory for the 2003 – 2008 Kia Sportage. What is it you ask? Well, it’s a Putco chrome rear window hinge cover–a more exciting piece of trim could hardly be found I’m sure but you can’t talk about Camaro lambo doors everyday now can you.
Yes, It’s ABS but That’s a Good Thing
In case you have missed the last 100 posts or so you may not be aware that the aftermarket industry is in love with ABS plastic because it has the following great features:
- It is ridiculously durable.
- It is indistinguishable from the factory chrome.
- It is corrosion resistant.
- It is ultra-light.
- It can be applied using automotive adhesive technology.
A Veritable Inundation of Chrome Aftermarket Accessories
In the coming weeks get ready for a deluge (that’s the second cool word for “flood” I’ve used in this post) of chrome trim accessories. I used to think that chrome accessories were the sole province of American cars but boy was I wrong. Companies like Putco will chrome out any car, even a Kia Sportage! So, keep your eyes peeled for aftermarket parts for Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and more in the near future.
