VOTE! April 2009 Modification of the Month

Vote for your favorite modification from April!

Some more inspiring projects (and one test) worthy of our collective praise, fame and fortune. Here are the contenders, in the order they were nominated:

  • skyl4rk's Nissan Versa Base 1.6L project continues to evolve. I nominated it for the surprising removable coroplast boat tail that he added to it in April.
  • Captainslug's "NEMO" project medium speed electric motorbike is in the running again. The polycarbonate motor mount made it eligible (but you can vote for the entire project, not just that specific part of it.) <$1k DIY Neighborhood Electric Motorcycle
  • This is the first test nominated for MOTM. (You'll remember we decided the compettion was open to quality tests, not only mods.) This one is for Ben's car: Does a Honda CRX have attached flow all the way down the rear hatchback? Tuft Testing 2nd Gen Honda CRX Rear Glass


Is some worthy project mising from this list? Is YOUR project missing? Well, tough luck!! You need to nominate it to have it included. Feel free to suggest projects for next month.
