Do engine swaps count? who was the first on this site to do it??

corvettecrazy might be the first 2nd gen with an LED brake light, but I think im the first 87-91

Randman has lots of first time mods with his 1st gen.

We've seen it done on cars on ebay, but the SE grill is taller, so they don't match. It leaves a gap above the bumper.

I think I have a couple.
Molded in 5-Series headlights.
Madza Milennia aftermarket spoiler.
Not the 1st to shave the handles, trunk key hole, and antenna, but 1st to shave all the other stuff I did.(bumpers, moldings, front bodylines)
First to do cam/heads/headers on a n/a L36 bonnie.
Maybe some other little things that I can't remember right now.
