Thumbs Up ghetto saturn mod ideas...

for you budget minded pimps out there...these hot mods will have even nire ladies clamoring to ride in your hoopt...uhhh whip...


budget cai: rubber band & thick sweat sock around throttle body

budget spinner rimz: pinwheel and string

budget decals: arts and crafts stencils or stickers of "v-tack" or "aeM" or "neuspeed"

budget tint: thick layers of purple saran wrap and scotch tape or for the really meticulous... extra globs of crazy glue to ensure a tite fit...nothing but the best




lets see if any of you frugal saturnfans can think of any more ... my brains out on vacation.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If one is so inclined... one can easily "harvest" the snow removal markers in peoples driveways or on the highway for their reflectors ( White or Red ) cut em and glue them as a mosaic for your taillight covers.
A pissed off ex-wife sounds amazingly close to 2-live-crew through the subs when locked in the trunk. #@*^%% BOOM BOOM BOOM.
Nerf foam from the plumbing supply house can mimic a roll cage.
And when you pull out the stategically placed window proping wedge from between the window and the interior door frame it almost looks like really fast power windows - until you try to close it.:o:

Just take the springs out of your suspension and let the other dopes pay big benjamins for lowering coils...you'll get the same slammed look and the same firm ride they do for nada!

get a small plastic wastebasket and cut it in half so you have a "C" . Bolt it to the hood, and you have a ram-air intake, voila!!!
