Added some customization. That's the piston from my first blown up 400 in the pre-Tiresmoke era. 1999, I think. The enormous piston is a TRW piston for an earth mover given to me by Dorothy Skowrunski when I worked at TRW Shared Services. I got some 3.2 Quattro badges to highlight the AMD 3.2GHz quad-core processor, and topped it with a vintage Hot Wheels Camaro from my personal childhood collection, as well as some Matchbox cars that I figured were worth finally removing from the packaging for this cause.

Nice - we need a "cowl induction" emblem to put under the hole where the CD drive would go.

What do you think about a TireSmoke logo? Maybe over the Dell badge or anywhere else? I can probably help with that if you like the idea.

If you can whip something up, I'm more than happy to stick it on there.

What is the diameter of the badge? Is it flat or convex?

There is a new Dark mode if you like that kind of thing (I do) -- go to your username in the upper right, click User Control Panel, click the Board Preferences tab, and change the My Board Style setting to "prosilver_dark"

I just noticed I don't have an avatar anymore not sure if what I used before is not support by the upgrade?

Actually, I think that existed prior to the upgrade. I'd just try re uploading your avatar. There are certain size limitations that I cant remember right now, though.
