The easiest way, for me anyway, is to load them up to my gallery and then open the pic, left click on it and then copy the http address of the pic and paste it in when the insert image icon asks for it.

If your pics are already on line somewhere you can just link to the pic's address using the insert image (little envelope over the text box when you're typing in your post) icon.

Critique my frame......

I finally got some work done on my StreetRod frame. I made my own C-notches and box plates, boxed and notched the frame, cut approx. 6.5" out of the center of both factory crossmembers, hand fabricated the driveshaft loops (that was tricky) and cut and welded in all the 1 1/2" schedule 80 (double wall thickness) reinforcing pipe. When boxing the frame I put steel tube "bushings" between the plate and existing frame and bolted them in sqeezing the bushing between the plate and frame to minimize flexing. Not sure if it would but just want a bulletproof frame. I still have to weld on brackets for the 4-link and panhard bar. The front of the frame is not yet boxed because I haven't decided what front axle I'm going with yet. The square tubing I used for the loops was hard to fit because I had to make it a certain height but if you cut too much angel you change the height, so that took a while (it took me 1 whole day for each loop) but then I'm kind of picky. So I would like some opinions/constructive criticism on the set-up of the frame, is it strong enough for a big block, will it withstand some tweaking. I don't plan on getting rough on it but don't want it to crack or bend if I try to spin a tire. P.S., The white stuff on the frame is where I put some polyester glazing putty to cover up some grind scratches and make everything look smoother.

It's a 1950. I'm planning on using a 4-link with a 9" Ford w/ disc brake, an aluminum driveshaft and a blown 454 .
