Any mad mods?

Sorry if this is not your cup of tea. I am after ideas and laughs.

I'll start.

I have just had the door openers removed from inside the car and fitted electronic openers to the centre console, I will smooth the door cards over soon to remove the holes. (TVR Style) IT's great when I ask people to get out.

Anyone top that for mad mods?

I would love a Barchetta Roadster like the mint green one...

do you have any pictures?

hey, what about shaved doors with remote opening? in that case you do not need locking device. how to open a door after you press a button on remote? put a spring that will push a door to open.

So true, so true. Also this mod is the only one that adds money! the rest are mens toys.

Illegal in the UK. YOU have to have a way of opening the door manually. Also if you have the key in your pocket and open the door at the wrong time.

1st Photo is the door missing the handle (Will be re-trimmed soon)
2nd Photo shows the door opening button.

How long have you been married? glad to know you still have it, the energy to do so much ironing! and being a teacher!

Or it this just a role play of yours! the Barchetta was the finishing touch!

Had our silver wedding in June. We bought the car as a fiftieth for me and an anniversary present for us. Would like to tour the Italian Lakes next summer but she's not happy about the boot size. Steve

Re: Any mad mods?

Don't worry about the boot size. As long as you are not taking dinner suits and the like, god forbid, you will be amazed how much you can fit in with a bit of creative packing. We use our B to travel around France ( that's what we got it for) with no problems. Anyway, if the dear wife insist on lots of clothes being taken get a luggage rack.

Re: Any mad mods?

Its not the boot size I would worry about. Having just got back from the Amalfi Coast I can say its the Italian drivers and scooters you need to worry about!

I would pack the boot not a case. Leave the case at home and fill up the boot.

Good idea. You know what girls are like - they're keen on changing their socks every week, whether they need to or not.
