What pays for your mods?

Just wondering how everyone pays for their mods? What do you do for work? Do you have a second job? Or, are your credit cards maxxxxxed out?!

I've only done small mods at the moment... like led's in the cabin, and door sills... I want to drop my car, add an intake and exhaust, maybe some rims down the road....

I am a supervisor at a printing company...

What does everyone else do? Please share any tips for making extra cash on the side! (Besides selling your body and or drugs! LOL) :P

I work for the Federal Gov. *I look for bombs * It sounds interesting *but it's really boring however it pays well.
My G/f is a graphic Designer
I'm 23 and she is 22 *so * we're doing pretty well for people our age. we hold down the mortgage and 3 cars. *My mazda always stayed stock but I have a heavily modded Honda Accord that I show. *Haven't decided yet if I will add any mods to the speed 3 when it comes in. I'll probably leave it the way it is *at least for a few years till its paid off.

Re: What pays for your mods?

I used to have a second job working at an indoor karting facility. European go-karts that go 40+ mph on a circuit track... it was pretty cool, but the traveling got to be too much... and now that I live even further away from there, its definitely not worth the drive. I am thinking of picking up a second job however, for "play" money.

Re: What pays for your mods?

Well I work in IT consulting and bandwidth sales right now part time. I have five more weeks until I graduate college and then I get a pretty nice pay raise. I won't be pulling in huge amounts of money, but I'll do ok for the low expenses I have.

It sounds lame, but I actually make some extra money doin yardwork, lol. I made like 140 bucks this month that I used to buy a buddy club condensor kit. As soon as I get back from golf teaching school in the Fall, I hope to start a side business givin golf lessons.
