Default cheap car stand!

Hey all, I just realized something. I just got done building my new TC5 and after installing my GTB/13.5 I realized that the foam seperator that is in the packaging of the GTB box works perfectly for a car stand. just wanted to let you know, I thought it was kinda neat. Sorry if this has already been posted.
