I had the thought last week that cars are expensive to own and even more expensive to modify.
If you're like me you probably like modifying/customizing/improving your vehicle even when the budget doesn't allow for dropping money all the time.
So what is the best things you can think of that you can do that cost basically nothing?
I made a list of my top picks:
A Carabineer (D Clip) is great for tying long loads in the car. The clip has to be the same size as the pin for the hatch. Since I have several of these that I've gotten for free I counted it as a free mod but if someone needs one they're typically around a dollar.
Removing the spare tire tray creates a lot more storage space. Great for pack rats such as myself.
Removing the lumbar panel in the front seats makes them much more comfortable. Some people add a paint roller or pool noodle in the panels place.
Blocking the gap between the center console and the seat so change and other objects can't fall into the pit of no return.
Disabling the GPS movement lock out by grounding the VSS signal going into the head unit allows a passenger to input GPS directions when needed. Only need a soldering iron and some wire which you probably have if you have a soldering iron.
I also had to mention the CKE insert for fixing the 18 mph vibration. Even though it's pretty cheap it's still not what I can call free but it is worth every penny.
What are your favorite free changes?
