Top Car Mods to do Yourself

Dealing with the same old ride day in and day out can get a little boring. Why not spice things up a bit with some car mods? Now, you don’t have to go to a body shop to get mods for your vehicle. Lots of mods can be done yourself! Though these can be done with next to no mechanical know-how, it wouldn’t go amiss to have a little experience with car maintenance.

Quality of Life Mods

These mods are to help make your driving experience a little safer and annoyance-free.

Backup Camera

Backup cameras have become much more common nowadays, and for a good reason. Backup cameras make backing up out parking spots or driveways a breeze. They also make moving backward in cramped spaces a breeze.

Tire Pressure Detector

Tire pressure is one of the easiest things to fix when it comes to vehicles, but pressure detectors can tell you exactly when they need to be pumped up. Low tire pressure can lead to more of the tire’s surface touching the road, which increases friction. Keep on top of it to prevent blowouts.

Data Monitor

Data monitors work much the same way that tire pressure detectors do. Instead of randomly digging around in the engine when the lovely “check engine” light comes, these monitors can pinpoint the exact problem.

Remote Start

No more scorching your behind when getting into a sun-baked car. With remote start car systems, you can turn on your car from a distance crank up that AC. You can even sync your smartphone with your car in case you lose your keys.

Cell Phone Holder

If your vehicle is equipped with a Bluetooth system, and you want to listen to a custom playlist, a cell phone holder is the thing to get. With this, you can listen to music or talk to people while keeping your eyes focused on the road.

Stylish Mods

For those looking to add a little pizazz to their ride, these mods are for you. From decals to interior LED lighting, there’s something stylish for anyone.

Vanity Plates

Why not let your personality show through while you go for a drive? With vanity plates, you can do just that. These custom-made license plates can replace the boring old one. Different states have differing rules for vanity plates, though, so make sure to do some research before purchasing.

Seat Covers

Seat covers are a good way to add flair while protecting your upholstery. These covers either strap around a seat or slip right over it. With easy installation, these are perfect when having a messy eater in the car.

Car Decals

While these may not be the cheapest of car mods, they can go a long way in making your car stick out. Usually, it’s as simple as sticking it to the car. From racing stripes to movie characters, you can find all kinds of decals on the web, for fun or business.

Shift Knob Cover

If you have a certain style going on in the interior of your car, you have to make sure everything matches. Even if it’s a shift knob. Some covers even improve grip to make shifting easier and more comfortable. In order to create a better grip on the steering wheel, there are covers for those, too.

Colored Bulbs

You can change out the bulb in your dome light to add some color to your car interior. This is more for those who don’t see the dome light to see.

Endless Possibilities

The customization possibilities are nearly endless when it comes to your car. For many people, their vehicle is an extension of their personality, so why not make it shine through even more? While some of these are more expensive than others, many of them increase quality of life and make driving safer. Not to mention more fun!
