The Laws of Modding.

I thought there ought to be a thread where we could collect all the laws of modding that we have observed over the years. I'll start:

1. If you screw with something long enough, it will break.

2. Modders have to mod. Especially if it's perfect the way it is.

If you lose patience and rush a mod, you’ll end up having to re-do it.

Best and cheapest way to mod is to wait until the part is worn out or broken to upgrade. Get more for your money and no excess parts laying around.

---This applies to cobalts only-----

----When all methods of reinstallation of part "X" via proper instructions have failed, typically, resorting striking park "X" back into place has been known to work.

If it's easily found on eBay, you won't find it under my hood

Modded cars should look clean and smooth. Rice grows out of the ground and is a grain, thus making it neither clean, nor smooth. :D
