April 2009 Modification of the Month nominations

EDIT May 4/09: voting is open, here: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...onth-8217.html

---

I'll start the ball rolling by nominating skyl4rk's Nissan Versa Base 1.6L

This ongoing project started out with some discreet & nicely made grille blocks, and some data collection to document the MPG improvement seen.

... And then WHAM! Out of left field we find a prototype coroplast removable boat tail under construction!




(Hopefully my nomination isn't the kiss of death, skyl4rk - I don't have a bad track record that way.)

Anyone else seen any good projects/tests/threads this month?

Don't forget, active projects that were previously nominated, but didn't take the crown in previous months are eligible for re-nomination.

Also, Ben, for answering a question I've been wondering about for a long time:

Does a Honda CRX have attached flow all the way down the rear hatchback?

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...lass-8097.html

(Yes, tests qualify for the MOTM contest.)
