    I thought you were allowed 3 modifications for stock? Small things like plugs and wires don't count.

    I always try to keep my cars stock, but this one might end up over 3 mods anyway, I'm thinking about HID lights, and the seats are the 94's with the continental stars (the 93 didn't have those). Add to that the 94 (only) double sun visors and I'm over 3 mods if we did consider the convertible one mod.
    It gets to be a gray area if you use factory parts, like using factory rims, sun visors, etc, don't necessarily count as mods. Maybe not parts from the same year but the same generation anyway so still factory. If in doubt just go in the modified since there is a lot going on with converting to a rag top, but I don't think it will make much difference with one category anyway.

    We need this massive influx you speak of.

    I think steve has the right info. Influx; Carlisle considers a MK VIII vert modified, because of the work done to it is excessive. Like steve says, all the little stuff doesn't matter, so get those HID's, and get a Carlisle trophy, it'll look good next to the LOD one.

    Modified it is, thanks guys.

    I think you still have to select stock or modified when you buy your ticket for Carlisle?
