Thanks. Luckily my education is nearly over -- I defend my MS thesis in less than a month

I made another one that was scaled down to the size of the actual hood ornament, and had my settings wrong, so it turned out less than perfect. I'm thinking I'll magnet it to the hood of some old junker car in the student-populated area of town and give someone a nice story to tell friends.

That would be funny! Find someone with a clapped out junker and stick the Star on it!

My good friend has a PrintBot and has made all kinds of cool gizmos. Neat things like a cell phone cradle for his car, made me a composite tap-test mallet, etc. Even used it to make itself a cooling fan mount and other parts. I'm pretty set on get in one here before too long. So many useful things to be made!

Skippy~ As for perception: Drive what you like and can afford. Those who don't like it can supply vacuum to one of your components. LOL

If you need parts, I have some!
