Under $30 mods here!
Ok so I though it would be neat to have a thread dedicated to low cost mods. Anywhere from engine to looks. Only thing is that it has to be $30 or less. It will be neat to have a big thread full of cheap mods so other people can get some ideas. I will start.

First is the "lunchbox" delete
Cost: $15
Time: 30 minutes

Second it my switch panel for subs and parking brake bypass(so I can watch videos with car in motion)
Cost: $25
Time: 45 minutes(Not counting paint drying)

Too bad, but your lunch-box mod is illegal in this state (won't pass inspection) because it uses a flex pipe.

I did a bunch of cheap mods this summer......this picture shows three. A seat cover from Advanced Auto $19. A floor mat from Home depot $2 ea. And a custom sill plate from Home Depot made out of a rubber stair tread $2 per door.

I like the sill plate, nicec!

Nice dude I like the rubber sill plate. Gonna give it a try. And good thing I don't live in Missouri, but it is only temp until I get my MRBP exhaust.

[idea] I am liking that door sill mod, as well. Looks good. I might also look into similar seat covers.
