Legal aid

Is there a thread/catagory for what the law says about modifying your ride? How far back can a boat tail go, maybe covering wheels...that kind of stuff....

Look for side mirror and coasting laws, and something about a boattail extending up to 4 ft.

Every state's MV laws are different. You'll need to contact yours to determine if your mods will be/are legal.
