What is the most getto thing you have done to your car?

For me, it would be the bondo/paint job on the front bumper. It is to keep water and stuff out.

I used a coat hanger to hold up my muffler in the old corolla. Recently I fixed my speedometer by jamming a piece of wire into where the contact should be on the plug at the diff.

I would have to say, one time I was riding back from Buffalo to Rochester New York. Going home from Skool. (80 mile drive high way and about 10 mile to house) Well, I put PLASTIC WRAP all around the front bumper and part of the hood (Held on by clear shipping tape) and drove all the way home. ALl the bugs splattered on it and it procted my car VERY well.~!~!~!

afraid so, this was before i had my camry, coming home in december, hitched a ride in my buddy's POS protege, it was something like 2 am, it was snowing and getting worse, we smoke this mid sized mutt

the rear hanger or two get ripped off (his exhaust had been recently repaired by an incompetent know it all mech student) i guess the welds sucked

so we had to hold the exhaust up, i ask him if he has any coat hangers in the car, he says no, but i do have an idea, comes back with the collar, we were with 2 girls, they were screaming at us (of course its cruel, but it was a leather collar, so it could take a good bit of heat)

dragged the dog to the snow bank and kept going

few months ago i got sick of my amber turn signals.

because it's really hard to find any aftermarket parts here in belgium, i decided to make some of my own

here's the pic

due to lack of time, i never got to finish them, so now they hold on with tape :cool:

when i'll find the time to finish them, i'll post a diy
