The modders´ motto?

Hey all,
Happy to join you fine people! Why not kick it off with my version of Modders´ Motto:
"Getting new stuff gives stimulation. Making the best of what you have gives personal value. Modding gives both!"
Ha ha
Looking forward to your versions!

If a body mod will get you smiles with miles, then a good day is headed your way.

It's not really a motto per se, but my tack with this Honda is "Remove and Improve" - if I have to remove or replace something anyway, I'll put superior components back in.
