    Lets list all our self down mods:

    I'll start off.

    1st- Headlights. Easy, but was confusing at first. On a scale of easy to hard 1-10. Ill give it a 4. Not difficult to install, but aiming the lights correctly suck.


    2nd Mod- MGW Shifter- Easy, but had to follow the direction to a KEY! On a scale of easy to hard 1-10. Ill give it a 3


    and my last self down mod- Hid conversion. On a scale of easy to hard 1-10. Ill give it a 0.1 at not hard at all. If you can plug in a stereo into a house electric outlet than you could install hids.

    springs, midpipe, wing ::), headlights(super easy), CAI, underdrive pullies, tri-ax shifter...i think that is it so far, time to move up to some big stuff. 8)


    oh, and im glad i wasn't the one that put the Longtuebs on my car, or the person that paid for them to be installed. ;D

    pretty much i have installed everything on my car, except mounting my tires to my wheels, that would be hard to do by myself. :D

    All of it except rebuild the transmission and my best friend apparently put a belt on it whilst I was um..*cough*incarcerated*cough*

    Smoked headlights, HIDs, JLT, MAC H, SLP, 4:10s, H&R SS, MGW, Intake port matching...I guess I didnt tune it either.

    This current project is all my doing as well and is currently nearing its end.

    Ya, i needa get a old v6 fox body and try stuff on it. I cant have balls when my only car is my DD that i have to drive to work. I hear stories about people stripping bolts and messing up stuff. I just cant take that chance on a DD that i have to depend on. Mind if you ship me your car and ill go to work on it (learning) making it fast at the same time >:D

    if its ur daily driver dont mod it urself!!!!!
    i done every single thing in my car, my buick, and my friends cars, and i still get into binds that the car has to sit cause of a stupid .25 cent part that i cant find anywhere. no matter how many times i tell myself im not going to mod my car anymore i just have to. my friend just cant stop putting crap in his 94 cobra either. if u want to experiment buy another daily driver or ur going to have to be pushing ur car to the side of the road all the time.i cant remember how many times that happened to me when my 70 buick was my daily driver, and it wasnt cause it was old it was cause of all the crap i have on it and at the time i didnt know how to install it right. i learned a lot though, change heads,valve jobs, change trannies, 3 of them ;D, take out the motor, countless carbs, ignitions, distributors, fuel pumps, lots of stuff and i refuse to take my car to any mechanic.

    u need lots of tools if u want to start messing with stuff. only one thing u dont need matco, or snap on.craftsman or even cheap taiwanese tools will do the job. i rather have lots of cheap tools than a handful of snap on tools. only REAL mechanic need those expensive tools but i have lots of cheap ass tools and garage sale tools that have hold up and i cant remember the last time i broke anything. and i use in old vehicles, 70 buick skylark, 72 ford f250, and now a 90 chevy 4x4 that i had to change the pitman arm and idler arm. this is an idea on how many tools i used for this job.
    im messy...
