"How To" Forum

Had a thought...wait..yeah....yeah definately a thought.

I think it might be helpful to have a "How To" board where members can post there how to's with pictures of the process. When I had my Escort back in the day the FEOA forums had this and it really helped when I started my modding. Members could take pictures or just leave step-by-step directions on things they are doing to their cars, anything from full stereo install to something as simple as removing a door panel.

Just a thought.

Re: "How To" Forum

Yeah we don't have them on the Fusion site. It's definitely something that we should consider in some form.

Re: "How To" Forum

Not trying to tell you guys how to run your forum here

But @ www.explorerforum.com we would have a how to write up for basically anything... for examply how to remove factory radio and speakers or how to change cabin filter or how to change tranny filter... tons and tons of how to's and it helped alot of people with things maybe they aren't familer with... Mechanically I can fix a car but I don't know jack about removing interior panels I always miss that extra screw or forget that other clip or that one piece overlapping that one.... Retarded things where a how to would save my life and my plastic trim

FYI they would give memberships or special free stuff to anyone who wrote a nice, pictures heavy how to on the article and submitted it... I did one on how to R&R front ball joints and it showed a few people who want to learn that stuff that its not that complicated once you start into it... I think you should seriously consider it I'd be the first one willing to make a massive how to on the cai I plan to do, maybe show people how to change brakes or what not? This is one forum that has alot of helpful folks unlike the civic forums I used to belong to that is filled with 20-30 yr old computer geeks that think their civics faster then formula one cars... You guys have been great help i've only owned my car 3 weeks and I feel as though I know a ton about it..

Re: "How To" Forum

the first step is to have people write up how-to's. then you can compile them all in one place. The fusion hasn't been out too long, but I'm sure there are plenty of owners that can get this started

Re: "How To" Forum

i have completed a how to on spectre intake, i have seen the how to for the blinking side marker lights, all we need is people who have completed some sort of mod i.e. throttle body ground, big 3, running amp and subwoofers. this is a great idea
