11th Anniversary Winners

2964 posts were made in the contest period, with the post ID range of 585735 to 588699. (If you want to know what your personal odds were: divide that by the number of posts you made. Your odds were one in whatever number you come up with.)

We used the True Random Number Generator at RANDOM.ORG - True Random Number Service to choose the winning post ID's from that range.


Congratulations!! Thanks to everyone for taking part, especially Linear Logic for the ScanGauges.

Winners: please send me a PM with your snail mail details to claim your prizes.


WINNERS NOTE! Winners must claim their prize within 10 days of today (by contacting me/Daox via private message), or we reserve the right to draw another name in your place. We're not kidding - we've had to do this before.

You can do several small, mostly subtle mods that will elevate a 4-cyl compact truck to near-compact-car fuel economy. If you don't need to load area completely open, a whaleback topper will make your rear end match the aero template, which is HUGE.
