Darned hard decision. Too many good projects, and I can only vote for one! I'll have to go through the threads once more...

I was torn between Dave's Dolphin and 3-wheeler's Insight boattail.

In the end, I've voted for Jim's mod, as it is impressive, yet more realistic - the "I could do that too !"- factor.
While the Dolphin is a stunningly impressive piece of work, I'd say it's beyond most people to carry it out.

I'm also going with the boat tail, for reasons stated above.

It's not even painted and it looks amazing. (:

Put it on the front page or something. It's easy to miss a single thread.

Voting closes on Tuesday!

I haven't decided which project to vote for yet.

But I have decided I'm going to vote for an "active" forum member. That rules out Dave Cloud's Dolphin & Mike Dabrowski's charger from my options.

I feel the same. I think the Dolphin is very cool, but I couldn't give him my vote. I had to go for a regular.
