What are Mods?
Any changes to a vehicle that stray from the original configuration. Anything done to replace stock parts have not been considered mods for this purpose.

What is Restification?
A new term used to describe the process of restoring and modifying a vehicle, not necessarily to the original manufacturers specifications. I want to have a vehicle that performs up to MY intentions while remaining somewhat stock in appearance.
