UPDATED: I (Cobaltxfe09) Went thru and gathered all the mods listed in this thread and put them in this First post. If any more are added we will try to add them as well


hey guys, i looked all around this site and i found so many mods scattered around. i thought we could get together and come up with a list of mods that people can do by themselves that don't cost more than $50-$100. I'm sure this will help a lot of people on a tight budget, but as well as have one list to look at rather than look around for it. any and all mods are welcome. and if you know the link for the "how to" for the mod please post that also, thanks.

do you just remove it and use a spray paint for it?

You could. OR

you can do what I did and spray engine spray paint into the cap and use a paint brush to paint it on.

I just painted the part that shows. Lay down and paint away! Looks so much better.
