Car Prep Inc. Created a custom "Turtle Charged" Kia Sportage to help save sea turtles

Our team here at Car Prep are ready to assist you in creating your special project!

Car Prep Inc. was commissioned by Kia Motors USA to design and build a specialized vehicle for Turtle Rescue Inc. located in South Padre Island, TX. President Steve Perkins met with the rescue team to define the specific needs they required to assist in their mission to help save the dwindling population of sea turtles.

Since much of the rescue activity happens at night, a video system was designed and installed that included cameras front and back, a split screen display to assist in locating the turtles and a specialized "Red" lighting array that does not scare their seafairing friends.

The next matter of business, was to design and install a pull out tray with three drawers to house equipment and supplies necessary in helping the team do their job, The tray also included a slotted cap to place four ventilated coolers to transport their special patients.

Additional touches were then added. The car was "lifted" to allow for high profile off-road tires giving the AWD vehicle a higher clearance. Then a well equiped roof rack was installed which included necessary tools, provided extra room for cargo and became the platform to house the special lighting array.

Lastly, a custom matte paint job was done that included the company logos. A unique ladder and side-steps were designed and fabricated to provide for ease of use. The end result was a highly specialized, self-contained vehicle built to optimize the specific tasks this team engages in for their life saving endeavor.
