    So modding your center dash to include an ac adapter is preferable to going out and purchasing a car charger?

    I was going to wire my inverter to two AC outlets on the side of my floor console. But more for when I drag out the vacuum or tools. I decided against it just as it's not all the incovenient to just run it from the trunk instead and the work involved of hacking up the floor console and making it look nice.

    what about a cool spoiler? you can probably make it out of scrap wood or old pallets.


    what about a crappy hemi sticker when your car has a v6?


    take an old pipe and make your own cool muffler.

    Or even carboard!
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
