Default Technical How To Thread

Since I know we recently have had some o crap moments with our installs I thought I'd try posting this up as an idea. If we get enough stuff on it I'll change it to a sticky so our members will have a common knowledge base to draw from.

Post format:
Activity (Springs, intake manifold, control arms, fuel injectors, etc.)
Year and Model (if it covers a range put the range down if you know it)
Difficulty Scale 1-10
Time


I'd post it up in a pdf or word document as an attachment, pictures are a plus. If you don't want to type that up or it's a simple task feel free to type it into the post body, but it needs to stay on one post length. After this gets rolling I'll put in a table of contents for post numbers to topics.

Master List:

Driveline
Blowfish shift bracket for 5.0 w/MGW (11-14) - (Post 27)

Suspension:
Springs/Strut Install (2005-2014 Coupe) - (Post #3)

Exterior Aesthetics:

Oracle Halo Install (2010-2012, useful for other lights) - (Post #2)

Faux Gas Cap Install (2013 - 2014) - (Post#13)

Aerocatch Hood Pin Install (All Years) - (Post 26)

This is a good idea. Maybe make it a sticky?

That would be awesome. I made mine in Word using a 2 column table to keep the pictures from jumping all over the place.
