Well, I did my first mod way sooner than expected.Welcome to the forum! How far do you want to take the carin modifications? A lot of experience and great people on this board, you won't be disappointed.
I did the “make my car stop vibrating like an electric razor” mod. Used some high speed carbon fiber adhesive strips (electrical tape) and space shuttle quality, sound deadening, high intensity, heat resistant super foam (a Mr. Clean scrubbing pad).
Worked like a charm.
