Re: What\'s Your Worst Small Mod ???
S/R is a small mod???????? What is big?????
My worst micro mod was a chrome skull shift knob. I didn't have the time or the money to hold out for the polished aluminum one with red crystal eyes, so I got the one from Auto Zone that was solid iron, chrome plated, and had shiny read ocular cavities. I thought it was a cool cheesy accessory, looking like a head on a pike, but:
It came with no threads and only one set screw. I had to figure out how to mount it to make it stay on! (which was a combination of lock tight, drilling a divot, and some silicone so that it didn't do the bobble head thing) The darn thing kept comming off in traffic!
It weighed a ton (well really I'll guess 4 pounds). It was so heavy that large road bumps and almost any offroad obstacle would throw me out of first, third, and (had I the power) fifth. I went a whole Saturday at Barnwell with one hand on the blasted thing and one hand on the wheel.
I finally put the stock one back on, not nearly as fun to look at (especially since it has pipe wrench grip marks and a dent) but at least it does what it is supposed to!
