View Full Version : The Mod Book

I've been putting together a book called "The Mod Book"
Been on it in my spare time for about 30 days. I am going through every single thread on the old board and every time someone posts a mod, I paste all of the info into a Word Document. I've got it broken down by sections, )Intake, Exhaust, Stereo, Suspension, etc).

It is over 50 pages now. This group of people we have is really amazing. The level of detail, part numbers, etc is priceless.

Anyhow - If your interested, let me know and I'll make sure you get the PDF.

Cheers -

We could have Scott add a Download category for that sort of thing and store it right on this site?

Is that cool?

Initinally, I'd like to keep it "by request", as I'd like to make it more professional and functional over the next few months. Once it is ready that way, It would be a great thing to Scott to post.

I thought I'd offer it sooner in case anyone was as sick of searching old threads to find mod information.

It sure would be nice to post that kind of thing - Scott and I have been working on a similar thing. If posted, regardless of how it looks, everyone has access to it instead of the few that happen to see the post or email you. Just a thought. Id certainly appreciate a copy....

Another great idea Dave!!
How about this also? Take the info from your document and make a category called something like "Completed Mods" then individually categorize each type of modification in sub categories. It would be the same as using a table of index and keep it searchable and be always current. Members would still be able to ask questions and build how to's etc..

An example structure would look like this:
Mods test (http://www.vehicross.info/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&daysprune=&forumid=7)

PDF would definitely be a good Idea.
Very easy to navigate.

Either way still a great Idea.
Good Work.

As a noobee, I thnk it'll give me an opportunity to get caught-up on mods. So please count me in.

BTW - I'd love to hear from owners about their myriad of mods and uses for the extra spaces in the cargo-area (jack & wrench compatments & spare-tire well). But maybe this needs a seperate thread?

I was not aware of this ever being completed - anyone have a copy from ‘02 when he started the project?

VXMAN
10/04/2004, 12:37 PM
I don't think any of the posters from today, looked at the date? The last request for a copy was back in 01/03! It never has come to light, I don't beleive? If it has, I'd like a copy too.

If this ever comes to fruition, I've got to get a copy also. Maybe someone with some free time will volunteer to compile it, if the original project got scrapped? Anyone? Bueller?
