Beginners threads of interest

I was talking to a new Ranger owner earlier and he didn't know a lot of the abbreviations like OHC and what a Mustang Dome light was and stuff and I thought that it would be beneficial to have like a Beginners Thread of Interest of something that just lists easy beginner mods. Some of my ideas were:

98-00 Blinker Mod

01+ Blinker Mod
(i couldnt find one on R/F)

Fog light Mod

Interior Painting Tutorial

Mustang Domelight Install


Overhead Console Install Part 1 and Part 2

Maximum Tire Size Chart


Crank the Torsion Bars


Muffler Discussion

Speed Governer

Tuner Discussion

Bumper Mod

Throttle Cable Mod

Replacing Speakers Front and Back


Any other ideas are welcome!

Also some of these how-tos arent here on R/F so if someone wants to rewrite them and put them up here go ahead.

Yes, I know, these were suggestions to add to the list so that maybe they will not be asked 24 bazillion more times.

Overhead console?

I saw in an earlier post that you had painted your overhead console black, I was wondering what kind of paint you used. It looked like it matched the original pieces well. Thanks
