I created this for several reasons:
  1. Signatures cause the threads to become too large to read text. You do allot of scrolling just to get through.
  2. As a non supporting member the signature block is limiting in the number of characters and markup code even though I tried to keep mine to a few lines with commas, there wasn't enough space to list all of the mods that you may want to consider for your cool ride.
  3. I Hope that others will follow suit.
  4. I can always come back to this thread and update it when I add or change the look of my ride.
Reply to this post and then copy the format, create your own and add it to here. For your signature, link to your post by copying the shortcut on the # of the post, you can see it next to the (permalink), right click on the number and click copy shortcut. Then paste it into your Signature.

Rules:
  1. Please do not comment on this thread except to add your own list.
  2. Do not post photos here.
  3. Create your posting for each mod in the appropriate area and then make URL references to them in your mod list here.
