I enjoy coming onto this forum both for advice and to give out advice from my own experiences. Over the last couple of years I've started modifying my car and I'm realy enjoying doing it so i think it would possibly be a good idea to add a section of the site specifically to discuss modifications/ideas etc for people looking for inspiration or help when doing their own projects. Obviously there's alot of people who have already had experience doing modifications and others who like myself have only recently started and i think alot of people would find it usefull and interesting? Obviously I know the site has limitations and i dont know if this is possible but just a small inquiry :)

Have something to contribute?

I know me too. Ive been trying to create albums so I can show my car when I first got it and what ive done to it etc. I think mods are an on going thing for alot of people as different things go in and out of style. Itd also be good for people lookong to get specific parts etc I dont know how many hours ive spent trawling the web for a certain thing for my car which someone else might have got before and been able to give me a nudge in the right direction

It's a great idea, but for now might be worth starting a modified motor thread under that section, it's an idea I had laid in bed last night, having a sub forum of mods per mk per model then you can post links and reviews to third parties or links to a how to guide you have done with that mod...

Its certainly something id be interested in even if its different car to mine. If you were going to do sub forums though id maybe do it like fiesta, focus, mondeo etc rather than going into specific models ie mk1-mk 7 fiesta

I thought that, but a compromise I suppose would be (as you say DanGers) having the section under Fiesta Focus etc, and put all the guides in there, perhaps have a filter / subfolder where you can put a link directly to your post in the overall folder, so you get the best of both (all in one place to browse but specific browsing also)?

One thing we will be doing in the near future is to add some sub forums for the MK of the car, such as fiesta MK 5,6 and 7. We would then move all topics (as best we can) to the new sub forums. That way people will be able to find ideas/questions on the year of their car that little bit quicker.
