You can host them on photobucket.com, it's free. Then just paste the IMG link in the body of the message and the picture will be there. Do you have the computer skills to do that? I only ask because some do not.

Welcome.  Posting images on forums fast and easy if you have a pic hosting site.  Once you have uploaded your pics to a hosting site and want to post a pic, go to Reply and see the icons, one of which is "insert image".
You can also host on fotki.com for free.  Been using Fotki for about 10 years without major problems.  However, my Fotki account is paid because of the volumn of images I store.  Check out a few of picture hosting sites before you select one.

Johnny5, can you introduce what model year have? It would be really helpful if you put that information and any other important options or modifications you have made in your signature. That really helps folks answer any technical questions by knowing what you already have.

Good luck!

Yep, but your signature "follows" all your posts, so no matter what thread you post in, people will know "at a glance" what model year, options and modifications you have.

People have probably read your other thread, but they aren't likely to remember the details over time.

Johnny5, do not let anyone every put you down because you are based in Louisiana.

I was birthed in NC. Both parents southern and I lived in about 16 states, many different cities, and 4 different countries. I still have a southern accent at age 62.

Remember first time I moved to NYC, I was in my 20s. New Yorkers thought me stupid because of my southern accent. Proved them wrong when I designed upscale hotel resorts and casino hotels.

Proved them wrong again when I wrote a design book that resulted in a 10 year international speaking venue. No one cared if I had a Southern accent. Book sales resulted in $100,000 profit for this southern boy with an accent.


I am from the South, only stupid people thank southerners are stupid. Only stupid people think accent = intelligence.

Fair amount of moving around here as well:

Born: West Monroe, LA
Albuquerque, NM
Irwin, PA
North Huntington, PA
Houston, TX
Dunedin, FL
Winter Park, FL
Arlington, TX <- Graduated HS
Monroe, LA <- Graduated University
Santa Clara, CA
San Jose, CA
Cary, NC
Sanford, NC


Had my share of accent assumptions. Up north they said I sounded like a hick, down south they said I sounded like a Yankee. I couldn't win smile
