I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the great articles. I also wanted to say thanks to those who have voted on mine. I figured it would come in last just because it was not actually a car related subject. I am glad to see some have still voted on it.

Thanks everyone.

I had a hard time picking one as well but felt that the home-made quick-change was my favorite out of them all..
